Victorian Ghosts, 1852-1907: EN 4573 Collection


The phrase "Nefas Dictu" is in Latin. In modern English "Nefas" means "Wrong" and "Dictu" means "To say (that)". Altogether this phrase means "Wrong to say (that)". This refers to the sentence prior, that it was told in private and is therefore wrong to say.
