Rhodopeius wrote: If you wrote fuero in this place of fuerit, that would make sense, but it would change the meaning from "of whose honor and merit I have been a helper" to "of whose honor and merit I will have been a helper." I used fui, the perfect tense, because the subjunctive of the clause dependent on the indirect discourse is the perfect sujunctive. I think you are confusing it with the future perfect indicative tense, to which it is identical in the 3rd person singular.
