Perhaps, men of
Athens, if we were trying the
case in a Rhodian court, these men might get the better of us, seeing that they
have taken grain to Rhodes and sailed
in their ship into that port; as it is, however, since we have come before
Athenians and our contract called for a voyage to your port, we hold it right
that you should give no advantage to men who have wronged you as well as
Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by Norman W. DeWitt, Ph.D., and Norman J. DeWitt, Ph.D. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1949.
