The Letters.: Libanius to Basil.
Libanius to Basil.
Now I recognise mens description of me! Basil has praised me, and I am hailed victor over all!

I should like to read it. But I am unwilling to try to say anything clever. When I have seen your speech it will teach me the art of expressing myself.
Next: Libanius to Basil.
