38 Latin Stories 27 Help Please!

I really need help with 38 Latin Stories chapter 27.

Here is my attempted translation first...as I know I must post it before anyone can help me.

O miserable old man, not to have seen in such long life that death is to be despised! Death however plainly it is disgarded, Which manifestly ought to be regarded with indifference if it really puts an end to the soul, or to be even desired if at ...

Wheelock's Latin - A Comparison of Editions


I have noticed a Wheelock Latin's 6th and 7th Edition selling in bookshops, so does anyone know what's the difference between both editions? And most importantly, is it fine to just get the sixth edition? - Is learning compromised in any manner? Your advice is greatly appreciated!

The Loci Antiqui


I am new to the Wheelock's Latin curriculum, and I noticed several mention the Loci Antiqui at the back of the textbook. May I know hoe should it be used? For translation, or for extra reading? Thank you!

How is this word pronounced? I know the 2 dots over the e changes the pronunciation but that is no clue to how the entire word is correctly pronounced. Is there an audio file which has this word?

personal pronouns

Wheelock ch. 11 says nostrum and vestrum are partitive genitives and nostri and vestri are objective genitives; I understand that but since nostrum and vestrum have neuter endings does this mean that nostri and vestri are neuter as well?

warmenhoven wheelock vocab learner

http://www.warmenhoven.org/latin/vocab/ used to contain an amazing resource for learning Wheelock information - it appears to be down (perhaps permanently)

Does anyone know of a comparable resource?

Ch. 30 "Evidence and Confession"

... sed primo dubitavit et negavit se de his rebus responsurum esse. I don't have any trouble translating this sentence but rather I question the Latin wording. Shouldn't the next to last word be responsurus(masculine)?

Vocative endings

Wheelock says that the vocative singular endings of nouns like filius end in -i but that the vocative singular of adjectives ending in -ius is -ie. Can anyone supply some examples of this type of adjective because I have never seen them. They must be a rare declension of adjective rarely seen.

narravi quod eram (L.A. 9)

Wheelock, adapted from Horace wrote:Nūlla fors mihi tē, Maecēnās, obtulit: optimus Vergilius et post hunc Varius dīxērunt quid essem. Ut ad tē vēnī, singultim pauca locūtus (nam pudor prohibēbat plūra profārī), ego nōn dīxī mē clārō patre nātum esse sed narrāvī quod eram.

I'm kind of lost at "narrāvī quod eram". Here's what I've got so far:

"No accident offered you to me, Maecenas: the very great Virgil, and after him Varius, told you what I ...
