Look inside the book:
It follows from all this that students who have had even the most elementary course in Roman history have already some knowledge of Private Antiquities, and that those who have not studied the history of Rome at all will find very helpful the reading of even the briefest of our school histories. ...But it may well happen that no Roman wrote a set description of the particular thing that we are studying, or if he did that his writings have been lost, so that we may be forced to build up our knowledge bit by bit, by putting together laboriously the scraps of information, mere hints perhaps, that we find scattered here and there in the works of different authors, and these perhaps of very different times. ...It must be carefully noticed, on the other hand, that the marriage of a son did not make him a pater famili?s or relieve him in any degree from the patria potest?s: he and his wife and their children were subject to the same Head of the House as he had been before his marriage.
