graviter, impressively.

natura pudorque : see § 8, note.


fide, fidelity to their oath as jurors.

non spero, I will not hope, I do not expect. Spero, of unwelcome expectation, is only found with a negative in Cicero; without a negative only in poets and later writers.

perferam, carry through. For et (where we should say but) after non deficiam, see Madvig, § 433, Obs. 2.
