[10] “If this had befallen you at the dinner-table in the midst of your amazing potations, who would not have thought it unseemly? But it occurred at an assembly of the Roman people.” Or take this passage from the speech against Catiline:1 “In truth, if my slaves feared me as all your fellowcitizens fear you, I should think it wise to leave my house.”

1 Phil. I. vii. 17. xi 32.
