English term or phrase: Good Boys of Rome
Hello!

This is the title of a story I'm writing that will have a fair amount of Latin in it. I never studied Latin, though I'm trying to study it on my own now.

I did study Spanish, French (major in college) and German, so it's not too difficult for me to learn a foreign language. However, my Latin's in the infant stage, and I'm a starving artist, so I was hoping for your expertise with an occasional sentence translation, beginning with the work's title.

When I'm published I promise I'll thank you in the opening acknowledgements.

Thanks,

Frank Sellers
