Laws and Man

“Who, O priests, is cast into prison for a half penny, for a penny , or for a hundred pence?

” Whenever, O priests, anyone is poor, needy and indigent : he O priests , is cost into prison for a half penny, for a penny, or for a hundred pence …

” Whenever , O priests, anyone is rich, wealthy and affluent: he, O priests, is not cast into prison for a halfpenny, for a penny, or for a hundred pence.”
