Translation of Lesson LXXVII from D'Ooge's book

Post by Propertius »

On pg. 190 in D'Ooge's book; on pg. 34 of the answer key.

I. 1. The soldiers that we saw said that the command of the war is of Caesar the general. 2. The Helvetii decided to assemble as great a number as possible of horses and of wagons. 3. The Helvetii have the most power of the whole of Gaul. 4. There was fierce fighting for many hours nor was anyone able to see the enemy fleeing. 5. The men of the greatest courage pursued the enemy for tens of miles. 6. Caesar persuaded the Roman people to make him a consul. 7. The victory of the army was always very pleasing to the general. 8. They marched for three days and arrived at Geneva, the town of the enemy. 9. Caesar heard that the Germans brought the war to the Gauls. 10. It was of great use to Caesar’s soldiers what they had employed in previous battles.
II. 1. Unus ex regis filiis multique virorum eius capti sunt. 2. Erat nullus qui eam reginam creare cuperet. 3. Res frumentaria semper curae Caesari imperatori erat. 4. Existimo castra decem mille passum abesse. 5. Iter fecimus tres horas per silvam densissimam. 6. Consilium belli inferendi sociis regi non erat gratum. 7. Ubi ad collem venit muro duodecim pedum eum munivit.
