Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VIII:
The Letters.: To Otreius, bishop of Melitene.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 222 Letter CLXXXI. 2593

To Otreius, bishop of Melitene2594

Your reverence is, I know, no less distressed than myself at the removal of the very God-beloved bishop Eusebius.  We both of us need comfort.  Let us try to give it to one another.  Do you write to me what you hear from Samosata, and I will report to you anything that I may learn from Thrace. 2595

It is to me no slight alleviation of our present distress to know the constancy of the people.  It will be the same to you to have news of our common father.  Of course I cannot now tell you this by letter, but I commend to you one who is fully informed, and will report to you in what condition he left him, and how he bears his troubles.  Pray, then, for him and for me that the Lord will grant him speedy release from his distress.
