About this deal

Graeca potius quam nostra lecturos, sin a Graecorum artibus et disciplinis abhorrerent, ne haec 19 quidem curaturos, quae sine eruditione Graeca intellegi non possunt. 20 itaque ea nolui 21 scribere quae nec indocti intellegere possent nec docti legere curarent. The Vigenere cipher uses a specific key, and shifts each value according to the key. In this case it can be reversed by subtracting the key values from the ciphertext.

nam nos in nostra urbe peregrinantis errantisque tamquam hospites tui libri quasi domum deduxerunt, 57 ut possemus aliquando qui et ubi essemus agnoscere. tu aetatem patriae tu descriptiones 58 temporum, tu sacrorum iura tu sacerdotum, 59 tu domesticam tu bellicam 60 disciplinam, tu sedum 61 regionum locorum tu omnium divinarum humanarumque rerum nomina genera officia causas aperuisti; 62 plurimum 63 quidem poetis 64 nostris omninoque Latinis et litteris luminis et verbis attulisti atque ipse varium et elegans omni fere numero poema fecisti, philosophiamque multis locis inchoasti, ad impellendum [p. 5] satis, ad edocendum parum. Rem a me saepe deliberatam et multum agitatam requiris. itaque non haesitans respondebo, sed 18 ea dicam quae mihi sunt in promptu, quod ista ipsa de re multum ut dixi et diu cogitavi. nam cum philosophiam viderem diligentissime Graecis litteris explicatam, existimavi si qui de nostris eius studio tenerentur, si essent Graecis doctrinis eruditi, Haec forma 222 erat illis prima, a Platone tradita; cuius quas acceperim dissupationes 223 si vultis exponam.' Tertia deinde philosophiae pars, quae erat in ratione et in disserendo, sic tractabatur ab utrisque.

Book contents

De 163 natura autem ( id enim sequebatur) ita dicebant 164 ut eam dividerent in res duas, ut altera esset [p. 11] efficiens, altera autem quasi huic se praebens, eaque 165 efficeretur 166 aliquid. in eo quod efficeret vim esse censebant, in eo autem quod efficeretur tantum modo 167 materiam quandam; in utroque tamen utrumque: neque enim materiam ipsam cohaerere potuisse si nulla vi contineretur, neque vim sine aliqua materia; nihil est enim quod non alicubi esse cogatur. sed quod ex utroque, id iam corpus et quasi qualitatem quandam nominabant— dabitis 168 enim profecto ut in rebus inusitatis, quod Graeci ipsi faciunt a quibus haec iam diu tractantur, utamur verbis interdum inauditis.' As one commentator has put it: "Horace's Epistles may be said to be a continuation of his Satires in the form of letters... But few of the epistles are [actually] letters except in form..." [1] :159 They do indeed contain an excellent specimen of a letter of introduction (I.9); a piece of playful banter (I.14); pieces of friendly correspondence (I.3, I.4 and I.5); while the last, Epistle I.20, is inscribed 'To His Book," and forms a sort of epilogue to the Epistles he had already written. However, as a rule, the Epistles "are compositions like those which Pope, following the manner of Horace, has made familiar to us as Moral Essays." [1] :159

audivi enim e Libone nostro, cuius nosti studium ( nihil enim 15 eius modi celare possumus), non te ea intermittere sed accuratius tractare nec de manibus umquam deponere. illud autem mihi ante hoc tempus numquam in mentem venit a te requirere. sed nunc postea quam sum ingressus res eas quas tecum simul didici mandare monumentis philosophiamque veterem illam a Socrate ortam Latinis litteris illustrare, quaero quid sit cur cum 16 multa scribas genus hoc 17 praetermittas, praesertim cum et ipse in eo excellas et id studium totaque ea res longe ceteris et studiis et artibus antecedat.” Horace begins by demonstrating, in the manner of the Stoic philosophers, the merit of Homer as a teacher of morals. 32-71 – Men will take more trouble for bad deeds than for good, and more for the body than the mind. Yet, without contentment and peace of mind, material acquisitions cannot be enjoyed. Avarice and envy are always beggars, and remorse comes after anger. Youth is the time to learn self-control. He shall always adhere to the philosophy of moderation. To Julius Florus, who was serving on the staff of Tiberius Claudius Nero. The letter consists mainly of inquiries and observations as to the literary pursuits of members of the staff; and concludes with a hope that the quarrel between Florus and Munatius has ended in a reconciliation. ut contra omnium sententias disserens 301 de sua plerosque 302 deduceret, 303 ut cum in eadem re paria contrariis in partibus momenta rationum invenirentur facilius ab utraque parte assensio 304 sustineretur. comprehendibile— feretis haec? 259' ATT. “ nos vero” inquit; 260 “ quonam 261 enim alio 262 modo καταλημπτὸν diceres?”—

non in nihilum sed in suas partes, quae infinite secari ac dividi possint, cum sit nihil omnino in rerum natura minimum quod dividi nequeat. quae autem moveantur omnia intervallis moveri, quae intervalla item infinite dividi possint. quod si Graeci faciunt qui in his rebus tot iam saecla versantur, quanto id nobis magis 173 concedendum est, Horace describes the simple attractions of his Sabine Farm. 17-45 – Advice to his friend not to value too highly the admiration of the masses – their honors can be taken away. 46-62 – Many a man who seems to be good is actuated by fear, not love – his morality is hollow. 63-79 – The miser is a slave to his money. The good man is free and fearless, come what will. Vides autem eadem ipse; didicisti enim non posse nos Amafinii 22 aut Rabirii similes esse, qui nulla arte adhibita de rebus ante oculos positis vulgari sermone disputant, ipsum ad nos venientem vidimus; atque illum complexi, ut mos amicorum est ( satis enim 2 longo intervallo * * * ), ad suam 3 villam reduximus. 4
