what was the behavior of this Demosthenes who had the power to give advice and
make proposals, who will shortly tell you that he hates our present
circumstances? On these matters, Demosthenes, did you offer any proposal, any
advice? Did you contribute money? Were you of the smallest value to the men
safeguarding us all? Not the least; you went round suborning speechwriters. He
wrote a letter at home, defiling the city's honor,
Dinarchus. Minor Attic Orators in two volumes, 2, with an English translation by J. O. Burtt, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1962.
