Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VIII:
The Letters.: To Gregory my friend.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Letter XIX. 1908

To Gregory my friend1909

I received a letter from you the day before yesterday.  It is shewn to be yours not so much by the handwriting as by the peculiar style.  Much meaning is expressed in few words.  I did not reply on the spot, because I was away from home, and the letter-carrier, after he had delivered the packet to one of my friends, went away.  Now, however, I am able to address you through Peter, and at the same time both to return your greeting, and give you an opportunity for another letter.  There is certainly no trouble in writing a laconic dispatch like those which reach me from you.



Placed by the Ben. Ed. shortly after Basil’s ordination as priest.


i.e.Gregory of Nazianzus, and so Letter xiv.

Next: To Leontius the Sophist.
