Cicero on his Slave

More from Cicero, this time how much he grieved the death of his slave, Sosthenes!

I am in considerable distress: for a delightful youth, my reader Sosthenes, has just died, and his death has affected me more than that of a slave should, I think, do. Pray write often. If you have no news, write just what comes upper most.
