The conclusion to which we came, however, it is
necessary for you to hear. I myself reached the decision regarding his claims,
and he regarding mine, that we should each take half of what Comon left, and
there should be no further unpleasantness between us. I chose, men of the jury,
voluntarily to share the inheritance with him rather than come into court and
risk a trial with the fellow, who is a relative, and to say unpleasant things of
one who is a brother of my wife and the uncle of my children, and hear
disagreeable things from him.
