And he who is disobedient shall be justly liable to the lawconcerning impiety, which relates to these matters. If any one is soviolent in his passion against his parents, that in the madness of hisanger he dares to kill one of them, if the murdered person beforedying freely forgives the murderer, let him undergo the purificationwhich is assigned to those who have been guilty of involuntaryhomicide, and do as they do, and he shall be pure. But if he be notacquitted, the perpetrator of such a deed shall be amenable to manylaws;-he shall be amenable to the extreme punishments for assault, andimpiety, and robbing of temples, for he has robbed his parent of life;and if a man could be slain more than once, most justly would he whoin a fit of passion has slain father or mother, undergo many deaths.How can he, whom, alone of all men, even in defence of his life, andwhen about to suffer death at the hands of his parents, no law willallow to kill his father or his mother who are the authors of hisbeing, and whom the legislator will command to endure any extremityrather than do this-how can he, I say, lawfully receive any otherpunishment? Let death then be the appointed punishment of him who in afit of passion slays his father or his mother. But if brother killsbrother in a civil broil, or under other like circumstances, if theother has begun, and he only defends himself, let him be free fromguilt, as he would be if he had slain an enemy; and the same rule willapply if a citizen kill a citizen, or a stranger a stranger. Or if astranger kill a citizen or a citizen a stranger in self-defence, lethim be free from guilt in like manner; and so in the case of a slavewho has killed a slave; but if a slave have killed a freeman inself-defence, let him be subject to the same law as he who haskilled a father; and let the law about the remission of penalties inthe case of parricide apply equally to every other remission. Wheneverany sufferer of his own accord remits the guilt of homicide toanother, under the idea that his act was involuntary, let theperpetrator of the deed undergo a purification and remain in exile fora year, according to law.
"That won't last long. James Laurence is a crotchety old fellow and not to be depended on. So you intend to marry a man without money, position, or business, and go on working harder than you do now, when you might be comfortable all your days by minding me and doing better? I thought you had more sense, Meg."
