When Peter made this intimation to my father, he answered: "I know what you
wish; do not trouble yourself further: for I understand and know what I am to
undertake when I come to the place."

the place, and see the people turned by your discourse, and laying aside their
hatred, and returning to their longing for me, send and tell me, and I shall
come immediately; and when I come, I shall without delay set you free from

this strange countenance, and restore to you your own, which is known to all
your friends."

And having said this, he ordered my brothers to go with him, and at the same
time our mother Matthidia, and some of our friends. But my mother refused to
go along with him, and said: "It seems as if I should be an adulteress if I were to
associate with the countenance of Simon; but if I be compelled to go along
with him, it is at all events impossible that I can lie in the same bed with him;
but I do not know if I can consent even to go with him." And when she stoutly

not less than you do? And, in short, I also myself shall come with you." And
