the account; for in this again the defendant himself will be my strongest

act. By doing what, men of the jury? To this I bid you now to give close heed,
in order that, if he really dares to utter any slanders about the mother of our
wives or about the documents, your knowledge of the facts may make it impossible
for him to deceive you by his talk.
