among the ancients, that if a person spoke in commendation of himself, he stood in danger of fascination--the effect of envy or enchantment on the part of another person. For this reason, on such occasions they prefaced with the word "præmfiscini," understanding "dixerim," "I would say." This meant "without impeachment of malice," "be it spoken in a good hour," or, as we say, "by your leave." I would now say this: not a person has ever accused me by reason of my deserving it, nor is there in Athens one other individual, this day, whom they would think they could as safely trust. THE ASS-DEALER. Perhaps so: but still, you shall never this day persuade me to entrust to you, whom I don't know, this money A man to a man is a wolfMan to a man is a wolf: There was an ancient proverb, Homo homini lupus, "Man is to man a wolf."

LEONIDA Now at last you are appeasing meYou are appeasing me: This he seems to say in a spirit of irony Huic capitulo" is literally "to this little head" meaning, 'to this humble individual, myself.": I was sure that this day you would give satisfaction to this poor head of mine; although I'm in mean garb, still, I'm well to do, nor can an estimate of my means be formed from it. THE ASS-DEALER. Perhaps so. LEONIDA Still more then I tell you: Periphanes, a merchant of Rhodes, a rich man, in the absence of my master, himself alone paid over to me, in private, a talent of silver, and trusted me, nor was he deceived in it. THE ASS-DEALER. Perhaps so. LEONIDA And you, too, yourself, as well, if you had enquired about me of other people, would, i' faith, I'm quite sure, have entrusted to me what you now have with you. THE ASS-DEALER. I don't deny it. (Exeunt.)
Hallo (Pennsylvania, United States) (search for this): act 2, scene 4
wish to make a presentWish to make a present: At the suggestion of Gronovius, "dare" is read, in this line, with a comma after it, instead of "da," the usual reading. In the latter case the passage would read, "---- if you choose, do a service for a friend," which certainly has not the point of the other version., lend to a person that is a friend---- THE ASS-DEALER. aside. I' faith, I'm quite undone; he'll be just now driving me away with his ill-temper. LIBANUS in a low voice to LEONIDA. Hallo! you, enough now. Do you hear what he's saying? LEONIDA in the same way to LIBANUS. I hear, and I'll have done. THE ASS-DEALER. aside. At last, I think, he has done: now it's best to accost him before he commences again to prate. To LEONIDA. How soon, sir, will you give me your attention? LEONIDA Oh, by all means--have you been here any time? Troth, I didn't observe you; pray, don't lay it to my charge: anger has so blinded my eyesight. THE ASS-DEALER. 'Tisn't to be wondered at. But if he's
