Translation of Brutus' speech on the taking of oaths, from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. It is quoted in a petition from the Amis devenus frères to the members of the constitutional committee of the National Convention, published in La Chronique du mois of January 1793 (p. 57). It is quoted in a spirit of cosmopolitanism, friendship between peoples and the fight against tyranny. The petition's goal is to obtain government support for the publication of the works of the Amis devenus frères in the Cercle Sociale's Bulletin des Amis de la vérité.
