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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Letter CXXXIV. 2442

To the presbyter Pœonius.

You may conjecture from what it contains, what pleasure you have given me by your letter.  The pureness of heart, from which such expressions sprang, was plainly signified by what you wrote.  A streamlet tells of its own spring, and so the manner of speech marks the heart from which it came.  I must confess that an extraordinary and improbable thing has happened to me.  For deeply anxious as I always was to receive a letter from your excellency, when I had taken your letter into my hand and had read it, I was not so much pleased at what you had written, as annoyed at reckoning up the loss I had suffered in your long silence.  Now that you have begun to write, pray do not leave off.  You will give me greater pleasure than men can give by sending much money to misers.  I have had no writer with me, neither caligraphist, nor short-hand.  Of all those whom I happen to employ, some have returned to their former mode of life, and others are unfit for work from long sickness.



Placed in 373.

Next: To Diodorus, presbyter of Antioch.
