Paper b.

I. Translate into Greek, with accents:—

Themistocles, aware of their suspicions, desired them not to be misled by reports, but to send to Athens men whom they could trust out of their own numbers, who would see for themselves and bring back word. They agreed; and he at the same time privately instructed the Athenians to detain the envoys as quietly as they could, and not let them go until he and his colleagues had got safely home. For he was afraid that the Lacedæmonians, when they heard the truth, might not allow them to return. So the Athenians detained the envoys; and Themistocles, coming before the Lacedræmonians at length, declared in so many words that Athens was now provided with walls, and could protect her citizens; henceforward if the Lacedemonians or their allies wished at any time to negotiate they must deal with the Athenians as with men who knew quite well what was for their own and the common good.
