Business To-morrow

.

When the Spartans seized upon Thebes, they placed Arcʹhias over the garrison. Pelopʹidas, with eleven others, banded together to put Archias to the sword. A letter containing full details of the plot was given to the Spartan polemarch at the banquet table; but Archias thrust the letter under his cushion, saying, “Business tomorrow.” But long ere that sun arose he was numbered with the dead.
