Letter CXVIII.23932393    Placed at the end of 372 or the beginning of 373.

To Jovinus, Bishop of Perrha.23942394    The mss. vary between Jovinus and Jobinus.  cf. Theodoret, Ecc. Hist. iv. 13.

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.
