them when pressed by applicants to say that they could not grant their requests against Cato's will.
On the day of his expiry of office the greater part of Rome had escorted him home, when he heard that Marcellus had been approached at the Treasury by a number of powerful friends, who were besieging him and trying to compel him to cancel a debt to the state. Marcellus was a friend of Cato's childhood, and while in his company had been the best of his colleagues ; but, when alone, he was ashamed to refuse suitors and prone to do any one a kindness. Cato at once returned, and finding that Marcellus had been pressed into cancelling the debt asked for the documents and erased the grant, while Marcellus stood by in silence. After doing this Cato brought him out of the Treasury and took him home. Marcellus never blamed him at the time or later, but continued through all his intimate friend.
Cato was the first to arrive at the Senate, the last to leave. Often when the other members were slow in assembling he would sit down and read quietly, holding the book under his cloak. He never left Rome during the session. Later, when Pompey's supporters found him invariably difficult to persuade or coerce into supporting their iniquitous aims, they planned to draw him away on the plea of acting as advocate to a friend, or as arbitrator, or on other business. He quickly saw through their plot, refused all invitations and made a point of taking no outside business while the Senate was sitting. He had not taken to public life, like some others, casually or automatically or for the sake of fame or personal advantage. He chose it because it was the function proper to a good man, and he thought it his duty to pay more attention to the interests of the state than a bee pays to the comb. Once when the demagogue Clodius was stirring up the beginning of a revolution, and slandering publicly the priests and priestesses (among them Cicero's sister-in-law), Cato opposed him to his own risk. He overwhelmed Clodius with disgrace and forced him to leave
