The Letters.: To Jovinus, Bishop of Perrha.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

p. 192 Letter CXVIII. 2393

To Jovinus, Bishop of Perrha2394

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.
