Exploring The Waste Land
An allusion page linked from The Waste Land, Part III, line 307

Book Three - Chapter 1 - Section 1
St. Augustine

As Eliot mentions in his note to line 307, this comes from Confessions, Book Three, Chapter 1, Section 1 by St. Augustine.

John Peter has made an interesting comment on Augustine's trips to Carthage. Augustine 'came' twice to Carthage and directs us to the Confessions, Book Four, Chapter 4.

For more on why Augustine went to Carthage twice see the commentary.
