adopted by some of throwing the toga back over the
shoulder, while they draw up the fold to their waist
with the right hand, and use the left for gesticulation
as they walk up and down and discourse, is not to
be tolerated; for even to draw back the left hand
while extending the right is an objectionable habit.
This reminds me of an extremely foolish trick, which
I think I ought to mention, that some speakers have
of employing the intervals when the audience are
applauding by whispering in someone's ear or jesting
with their friends or looking back at their clerks, as
if telling them to make a note of some gratuity to
be dispensed to their supporters.
