Let's Not Talk About That

Cicero, Brutus 3.11 (tr. G.L. Hendrickson):
Here Atticus broke in: "It was precisely our thought in coming, to avoid talk about public affairs."

tum Atticus: eo, inquit, ad te animo venimus, ut de re publica esset silentium.
Id. 42.157:
At this point Atticus interrupted: "I said in the beginning that we should not touch on politics. Let us keep to that."

hic Atticus: dixeram, inquit, a principio, de re publica ut sileremus; itaque faciamus.
