To which of our statements does this observation allude?Athenian
My dear Sir, keep a watch on me, with an eye cast back on our opening1 statement about the Cretan laws. It asserted that those laws aimed at one single object; and whereas you declared that this object was military strength, I made the rejoinder that, while it was right that such enactments should have virtue for their aim, I did not at all approve of that aim being restricted to a part, instead of applying to the whole.
