PLUTARCH

tell my son not to use force on his father where he cannot persuade him.
They made no reply, but left the room in tears. Cato had the sword brought him by a small boy, and having got it drew and examined it. Seeing that the point was sharp and that the edge was in good condition, he said, Now I am my own master ; then he laid the sword down and again took the book. He is said to have read it through twice ; then he fell into a sleep so sound that those outside heard him. At midnight he called his doctor, the freedman Cleanthes, and Butas, who was his right hand in political matters. He sent the latter to the sea, to ascertain if all his friends had sailed and bring back word, while he got the doctor to bandage his hand, which was inflamed by the blow which he had given the servant. This made every one easier, for they took it as a sign that he meant to live. Shortly afterwards Butas returned with the news that every one had sailed except Crassus, who had been detained by some business, but that he was just going on board, and that there was a high wind and a great storm at sea. On hearing this Cato sighed out of pity for those at sea, and sent Butas back to the harbour. Now the birds were beginning to sing, and Cato again fell into a light sleep. On the return of Butas, he told him to shut the door, and lay down on his bed, as though he meant to sleep for the rest of the night. But when Butas had left he drew his sword and drove it into his breast. Owing to his inflamed hand the blow was unsteady, and did not immediately take effect : he fell off the bed in his struggling and made a noise by knocking down a mathematical calculating board that stood near. His servants heard it and shouted out, and his son and friends at once rushed in. Seeing him in a pool of blood but still alive they were in a terrible state ; the doctor came in and tried to stitch up the wound. But Cato, recovering consciousness and seeing their intention, pushed the doctor away, tore out the stitches, and expired.
