Philip to the
Council and People of Athens,
greeting. To the embassies that I have repeatedly
dispatched to ensure the observance of our oaths and agreements you have paid no
attention, so that I am forced to send you a statement of the matters in which I
consider myself wronged. But you must not be surprised at the length of the
letter, for I have many charges to prefer, and it is necessary to put them all
clearly and frankly.
Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by C. A. Vince, M. A. and J. H. Vince, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
