[236e] by what god? By this plane tree? I take my solemn oath that unless you produce the discourse in the very presence of this plane tree, I will never read you another or tell you of another.

Oh! Oh! You wretch! How well you found out how to make a lover of discourse do your will!

Then why do you try to get out of it?

I won't any more, since you have taken this oath; for how could I give up such pleasures?
