Chapter XLI.—Argument:  Finally, All are Pleased, and Joyfully Depart:  Cæcilius, that He Had Believed; Octavius, that He Had Conquered; And Minucius, that the Former Had Believed, and the Latter Had Conquered.

“But for myself,” said I, “I rejoice more fully on behalf of all of us; because also Octa198vius has conquered for me, in that the very great invidiousness of judging is taken away from me.  Nor can I acknowledge by my praises the merit of his words:  the testimony both of man, and of one man only, is weak.  He has an illustrious reward from God, inspired by whom he has pleaded, and aided by whom he has gained the victory.”

After these things we departed, glad and cheerful:  Cæcilius, to rejoice that he had believed; Octavius, that he had succeeded; and I, that the one had believed, and the other had conquered.
