To Jovinus, Bishop of Perrha. 2394
You owe me a good turn. For I lent you a kindness, which I ought to get back with interest;—a kind of interest, this, which our Lord does not refuse. Pay me, then, my friend, by paying me a visit. So much for the capital; what of the increment? It is the fact of the visit being paid by you, who are a man as much superior to me, as fathers are better than children.
Placed at the end of 372 or the beginning of 373.192:2394
The mss. vary between Jovinus and Jobinus. cf. Theodoret, Ecc. Hist. iv. 13.
