Paula.Eustochium [Letter to Marcella, 388-392?] in Sancti Eusebii Hieronymi Epistulae ep.46

[Letter from Paula and Eustochium to Marcella]
This letter, the only preserved among Jerome's letters, comes from both Paula and Eustochium, disciples of Marcella. They try at length to persuade her to come to Jerusalem. The letter is learned in secular and religious sources, affectionate, and deferential, always anticipating her scholarly criticism. They imagine the arguments she might make in such detail, that it is possible they have already heard them from her.
