Wherefore they who Say that the Marriages of Such are not Marriages...
13. Wherefore they who say that the marriages of such are not marriages, but rather adulteries, seem not to me to consider with sufficient acuteness and care what they say; forsooth they, are misled by a semblance of truth.

And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tent-makers. 4.
