It is returnable home for me and for you.

Est redeundum domum mihi et tibi. (g! “I believe that Caius's sister, being asked who she was and

what she had to do, replied that she was your daughter,

but that she did not know what she must do." I believe the sister of Caius, having been asked who she was,

and what was do-able for herself, to have replied herself to be your daughter, but to know-not what was do-able for

herself. Credo sororem Caii, rogatam quæ esset et quid

esset faciendum sibi, respondisse se esse filiam

tuam sed nescire quid esset faciendum sibi. (h) “ What do you think she said you had expected that I

should say I had had to do ?” What do you think her to have declared you to have expected

me to be about to declare to have been do-able for myself? Quid putas illam dixisse te expectavisse me esse

dicturum fuisse faciendum mihi ?
