[309b] who said that youth has highest grace in him whose beard is appearing, as now in the case of Alcibiades?

Friend
Then how is the affair at present? Have you been with him just now? And how is the young man treating you?

Socrates
Quite well, I considered, and especially so today: for he spoke a good deal on my side, supporting me in a discussion—in fact I have only just left him. However, there is a strange thing I have to tell you: although he was present, I not merely paid him no attention, but at times forgot him altogether.
