TRANSLATE into LATIN PROSE:
When the inordinate hopes of youth, which provoke their own disappointment, have been sobered down by longer experience and more extended views;-when the keen contentions and eager rivalries which employed our riper years have expired or been abandoned;-when we have seen, year after year, the objects of our fiercest hostility and of our fondest affections lie down together in the hallowed peace of the grave;-when ordinary pleasures and amusements begin to be insipid, and the gay derision which seasoned them to appear flat and importunate;-when we reflect how often we have mourned and been comforted, what opposite opinions we have successively maintained and abandoned, to what inconsistent habits we have gradually been formed, and how frequently the objects of our pride have proved the sources of our shame, we are naturally led to recur to the days of our childhood, and to retrace the whole of our career, and that of our contemporaries, with feelings of far greater humility and indulgence than those by which it had been accompanied; to think all vain but affection and honour, the simplest and cheapest pleasures the truest and most precious, and generosity of sentiment the only mental superiority which ought either to be wished for or admitted.
TRANSLATE into GREEK IAMBICS:
Oh hear me, look upon me, how my heart
After long desolation now unfolds
Unto this new delight, to kiss thy head,
Thou dearest, dearest one of all on earth!
To clasp thee with my arms, which were but thrown
Give my soul's rapture way!
The eternal fount
Of high Parnassus, down the golden vale,
Orestes! oh my Brother!
