Polus
What? Are they not like the despots, in putting to death anyone they please, and depriving anyone of his property and expelling him from their cities as they may think fit?

Socrates
By the Dog, I fear I am still in two minds, Polus, at everything you say, as to whether this is a statement on your own part, and a declaration of your own opinion, or a question you are putting to me.

Polus
Why, I am asking you.

Socrates
Very well, my friend then are you asking me two things at once?

Polus
How two?
