Page 112 - Ulixes in animo habebat ex insula quam celerrime discedere : Circe tamen, cum haec cognovisset, ex odio ad amorem conversa omnibus precibus eum orare et obtestari coepit, ut paucos dies apud se moraretur: et hoc tandem impetrato tanta beneficia in eum contulit ut facile ei persuasum sit ut diutius maneret.
