Scarce had we gone ten leagues from sight of land, Pg 130]But, lo, an host of black and sable clouds ‘Gan to eclipse Lucina’s silver face; And, with a hurling noise from forth the south, A gust of wind did rear the billows up.

May I not, then, hope that you, and the deities of friendship, will forgive me, if I venture to mention a return to my family and country? especially since the gods offer me so unlooked-for an opportunity, in the voyage which Nausicles proposes making into Greece.
