[116] where fellow-countrymen, instead of waging war in defense of their territories against strangers, are fighting within their own walls1 against each other; where more cities have been captured in war2 than before we made the peace; and where revolutions follow so thickly upon each other that those who are at home in their own countries are more dejected than those who have been punished with exile? For the former are in dread of what is to come, while the latter live ever in the hope of their return.
