assiduous practice, Aeschines, had been conducted in a spirit of honesty and of

revenues, development of commerce, useful legislation, measures of opposition to
our avowed enemies.
Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by C. A. Vince, M. A. and J. H. Vince, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
