A PHILOSOPHIC MISSIONARY - DION CHRYSOSTOM

this vein and the crowd got angry : and I was at my wits' ends, and was afraid that they might do me some injury.'
Another speaker then rose on the opposite side. Pointing out the depopulation of Greece and mentioning his own
difficulty in getting labour and the tendency to desert the country for a city life, he argues that men like the countryman
F are doing a real service to the state and should be encouraged. INALLY they told me to speak. 'What shall I say? ' I said. 'Answer what has been said,' shouted a man in the audience. ` Well,' I replied, ` it is all false. I thought that I must have been dreaming when the speaker talked about farms and villages and all that nonsense. We have no village, horses, asses, or oxen. I wish we had all the fine things he talked about, to give you some and to be well off ourselves. But what we have is enough. Take what you like of it ; and if you take all, we will get some more.' They applauded this, and the president asked me what we could give the state. `Four very fine deerskins,' I said. The crowd laughed and the president was annoyed. 'The bearskins,' I continued, ` are rough, and the goatskins are worth less, and the rest are old and some small. But, if you wish, take them.' He was still vexed and said that I was a regular country bumpkin. Then I went on : 'You talk of farms ? I tell you we have none.' He asked me : 'Will you each pay an Attic talent ?'_` We don't weigh our meat,' I said. ` But what we have is yours. There is a little salted, and the rest smoke-dried, but almost as good, some hams, and venison, and some other fine meat.'
Then they shouted that I was lying. Some one cried, 'Don't you make wine ?'` We do, and will give it to any one who comes. But bring a wineskin, for we have none.' ` How many vines have you ?'` Two in front of the gate, and twenty in the yard. But to save you from the trouble of questioning me on each point I will tell you the rest of our possessions :
