III (A I, 7)
TO ATTICUS (AT ATHENS)All's well at your mother's, 1 and I keep an eye on her. I have undertaken to pay L. Cincius 20,400 sesterces 2 to your credit on the Ides of February. Pray see that I receive at the earliest possible opportunity what you say in your letters that you have bought and secured for me. I should also be very much obliged if you would, as you promised, think over the means of securing the library for me. My hope of getting the one enjoyment which I care for, when I come to retire, depends entirely on your kindness.
