Note 017
From Chapter 37 of the Decline & Fall

See the Life of Hilarion, by St. Jerom (tom. i. p. 241, 252 [torn. ii. p. 15, 24, ed. Vall.]). The stories of Paul, Hilarion, and Malchus, by the same author, are admirably told; and the only defect of these pleasing compositions is the want of truth and common sense.
