This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1891 edition. Excerpt: ...were enduring. For the tense, see 336, A. line 5. eius consili principes: the prime movers in this plan: prm cipes = auctores, authors. 6. in Britanniam profugerunt: as lately Boulanger and others have done. 8. clemcutia: said of one who has power to exercise the opposite, severitas, crudelitas. mansuetudine: said of one who is humane and gentle, opposed to feritas. 9. feceris... amplificabis: we say, 'if you do this, you will add to'; in Latin, 'if you shall have done this, you will add to.' 10. qua: 105, d.; H. 190, 1. si qua bella, etc.: by whose aid and resources they (the./Edui) are accustomed to bear the burden of whatever wars befall them. Page 30, 26. perferre... defecisse: were enduring... had revolted. 28. quod intellegerent: seeing. 31. sua: emphatic; his own, that is, his well-known. 32. quod si fecerit: if he should do this; the subjunctive of the future perfect, for which there is no separate form; hence the form of the perfect subjunctive is borrowed. If the tense is named by its form, it will be called perfect subjunctive; if by its meaning, future perfect subjunctive. Page 31, 1. amplificaturum (esse): the subject must be inferred from the subject of feceiit. Chap. 15, 1. honoris... causa: out of regard to Divitiacus. 3. magna... auctoritate: one of great influence; a predicate ablative of description; such an ablative must always have a modifier, as here, magna. The genitive may be used in the same way, as below, magnae virtutis. On the order, see note, chap. 12, l. 5. 6. quorum, etc.: translate closely in the order of the Latin; about their character and customs, C&sar, on inquiry; so, generally, do your best to keep close to the Latin order. Read again the Introductory Note, p. 43. line 12. qui... dedidissent: for more
