DCCXXXII (A XV, 4 b)

TO ATTICUS (AT ROME)
ARPINUM, 24 MAY
How I wish that you could have accomplished your purpose for Brutus! I am accordingly writing to him. I am sending Tiro to Dolabella with a letter and a message. Send for him to see you and write if you have anything you wish to say. But lo and behold a request from L. Caesar is suddenly sprung on me to go to Nemus 1 to see him, or to write and tell him when I should wish him to come; because Brutus thinks he ought to have an interview with me. What a disagreeable and puzzling business! I think therefore that I shall go, and thence to Rome, unless I change my plans. At present I only write briefly to you, for I have not yet heard anything from Balbus. I am anxious therefore for a letter from you, and not telling me only of what has been done, but also what is going to happen.


1 The Nemus Dianae, mod. Aricia, near the lago de Nemi (see vol. ii., p. 245). L. Caesar was Antony's uncle (Phil. 2.14). He was consul B.C. 64.
