Fathers of the Church
Letter CXLIV: to the Prefects' Officer
by Basil the Great in 357-370 | translated by Blomfield Jackson, M.A
You know the bearer from meeting him in the town. Nevertheless I write to commend him to you, that he may be useful to you in many matters in which you are interested, from his being able to give pious and sensible advice. Now is the thee to carry out what you have said to me in private; I mean when this my brother has told you the state of the poor.
