Translation of Lesson LXXIX from D'Ooge's book

Post by Propertius »

Last lesson. Done at last.

On pg. 193 of D'Ooge's book; pg. 35 of the answer key.

I. 1. When he had arrived, Caesar encouraged the soldiers to not give up the plan of capturing the town. 2. After the camp was placed near the town, the king sent spies to find out where the Roman army was. 3. No one was left that could bear arms. 4. The messengers saw that a huge multitude of armed men fell from the wall into the ditch. 5. The leader ordered his men to cross the river. To cross this river however was very difficult. 6. Although the Romans were annoyed by this loss, they refused however to retreat. 7. After this rumor was heard, such a great terror took possession of everyone’s spirits that not even the bravest wanted to commence battle. 8. There were some who thought that the time of the year is not suitable for making a march. 9. There was fierce fighting from each side that many thousands of people were killed. 10. What do you fear? I fear that the Romans intend to conquer the whole of Gaul and to inflict injuries upon us.
II. 1. Videsne quis in muro stare? 2. Audimus consilium oppidi capiendi omissum esse. 3. Cum Germani existimarent Romanos Rhenum transire non possent, Caesar imperavit ut pons fiat. 4. Cum pons confectus sit, barbari tam terrebantur ut se abderent. 5. Timebant ne Caesar eos persequeretur. 6. Caesar a mercatoribus quaerebat quod magnitudo insulae esset. 7. Mercatores eum monuerunt ne mare transeat. 8. Misit exploratores ad deligendum locum castris.

II. 1. Nonne vides quis in muro stet? 2. Audimus consilium oppidi capiendi omissum esse. 3. Cum Germani existimarent Romanos Rhenum transire non possent, Caesar imperavit ut pons fieret (or use infinitive like in the key). 4. Cum pons confectus sit, barbari tam terrebantur ut se abderent. 5. Timebant ne Caesar se (it refers to the subject of the principal) persequeretur. 6. Caesar a mercatoribus quaerebat quae magnitudo insulae esset. 7. Mercatores eum monuerunt ne mare transiret. 8. Misit exploratores ad deligendum locum castris.
