And then on the next day, when the
peace was to be ratified, when I supported the resolutions of our allies, and
did what I could to secure fair and equitable terms, and when the people
sympathized with my purpose and refused to hear a word from the contemptible
Philocrates, up jumped the very man who had made the speech I have quoted in the
head of all of you only the day before, and addressed you in support of
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.
