Now the multitude of the Galileans had that great kindness for me,
and fidelity to me, that when their cities were taken by force, and their
wives and children carried into slavery, they did not so deeply lament
for their own calamities, as they were solicitous for my preservation.
But when John saw this, he envied me, and wrote to me, desiring that I
would give him leave to come down, and make use of the hot-baths of Tiberias
for the recovery of the health of his body. Accordingly, I did not hinder
him, as having no suspicion of any wicked designs of his; and I wrote to
those to whom I had committed the administration of the affairs of Tiberius
by name, that they should provide a lodging for John, and for such as should
come with him, and should procure him what necessaries soever he should
stand in need of. Now at this time my abode was in a village of Galilee
which is named Cans.
