Hi guys.
Here is my setence "After Marcus broke his arm on the outskirts of Rome, the old general received him into his home and cared for him. "
I'm not sure if I should use "welcome him into" or "took him into" or" receive him into". The context is the two parites Marcus and the old general have equal social status.

    Both "welcomed him into" and "took him into" are good expressions to use. Using "welcomed" makes the old general sound more welcoming. "Received him into" isn't wrong, but it does not sound as likely a choice to use to me. I cannot say why, though.
