Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VIII:
The Letters.: To the Widow Julitta.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 187 Letter CVII. 2369

To the Widow Julitta2370

I was grieved to find on reading your ladyship’s letter that you are involved in the same difficulties.  What is to be done to men who show such a shifty character, saying now one thing now another and never abiding in the same pledges?  If, after the promises made in my presence, and in that of the ex-prefect, he now tries to shorten the time of grace as though nothing had been said, he does seem to have lost, as far as I am concerned, all sense of shame.  Nevertheless I wrote to him, rebuking him, and reminding him of his promises.  I wrote also to Helladius, who is of the household of the prefect, that information might be given through him about your affairs.  I hesitated myself to make so free with an officer of such importance, on account of my never having yet written to him about my own private affairs and my fearing some adverse decision from him, great men, as you know, being easily annoyed about such matters.  If, however, any good is to be done in the matter, it will be through Helladius, an excellent man, well disposed towards me, fearing God, and having perfectly free access to the prefect.  The Holy One is able to deliver you from all affliction, if only truly and sincerely we fix all our hope on Him.
