Note 023
From Chapter 33 of the Decline & Fall

In a confidential letter to Count Boniface St. Augustin, without examining the grounds of the quarrel, piously exhorts him to discharge the duties of a Christian and a subject - to extricate himself without delay from his dangerous and guilty situation; and even, if he could obtain the consent of his wife, to embrace a life of celibacy and penance (Tillemont, Mem. Eccles. tom. xiii. p. 890). The bishop was intimately connected with Darius, the minister of peace (id. tom. xiii. p. 928).
