CCCXXXIII (A VIII, 11 c)

POMPEY TO CICERO (AT FORMIAE)
CANUSIUM, 20 FEBRUARY
IF you are well, I am glad. I was pleased to read your letter; for I recognized your old gallantry still in defending the public safety. The consuls have joined my army in Apulia. I strongly urge you, in the name of your unique and unbroken zeal for the service of the state, to join us also, that by our united counsels we may support and aid the violated Republic. My opinion is that you should travel by the Appian road, and come with all speed to Brundisium.
