Lord, I wonder what pleasure is it to you to speak lies to me? Remember, time rolls on, words alone remain. How many times have I had
assurance of your parental concern! You assured me, "There is no need for any apprehension on that count." Many a time you have assured me,
"When I am your mother and father, why have fear?" You have favored many of my peers and even assured and kept up your word to great men. By this battery of lies to me, what pleasure do you derive?
