Let every one of you bear these points in
mind, Athenians, and remember the present circumstances, which call for good
faith, not corruption. You must hate the wicked, wipe out such monsters from the
city, and show the world that the mass of people have not been corrupted with a
few orators and generals and are not cowed by their reputation; for they realize
that with integrity and agreement among ourselves we shall easily triumph, by
the grace of the gods, if anyone unjustly attacks us, but that with bribery and
treason and the allied vices practiced by men like this no city could survive.
