Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VIII:
The Letters.: Without inscription, on behalf of Elpidius.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Letter LXXVIII. 2273

Without inscription, on behalf of Elpidius.

I have not failed to observe the interest you have shown in our venerable friend Elpidius; and how with your usual intelligence you have given the prefect an opportunity of showing his kindness.  What I am now writing to ask you is to make this favour complete and suggest to the prefect that he should by a particular order set over our city the man who is full of all possible care for the public interests.  You will therefore have many admirable reasons to urge upon the prefect for his ordering Elpidius to remain at Cæsarea.  There is at all events no need for you to be taught by me, since you yourself know only too well, what is the position of affairs, and how capable Elpidius in administration.
