Perpetua was a twenty-two-year-old lady, with a few months old baby; she resisted the assault of her old father, who presented her little boy to him to turn her away from her faith. Felicitas, a slave was pregnant, and the law forbade her to be executed; for which she wept with sorrow, fearing the delay of her martyrdom; but three days before the shows she gave birth to a girl, who was adopted by a Christian lady. Arriving at the circus, Perpetua and Felicitas kissed each other on the cheek, and, lastly, they presented their necks to the sword in Carthage.
