[79] Again, there have been cases where persons condemned for bribery have indicted others for the same offence with a view to recovering their lost position:1 for this the schools provide a parallel in the theme where a luxurious youth accuses his father of the same offence. I do not see how this can be done with decorum unless we succeed in discovering some difference between the two cases, such as character, age, motives, circumstances of time and place or intention.
