Duke. About it, gentlemen.
Pro. We'll wait upon your grace till after supper; And afterward determine our proceedings. Duke. Even now about it: I will pardon you.''

Val. My friends, – 1 Out. That's not so, sir: we are your enemies. 2 Out. Peace! we'll hear him.
33 Out. Ay, by my beard, will we ; for he is a proper' man.
Val. Then know, that I have little wealth to lose. A man I am, cross'd with adversity : My riches are these poor habiliments, Of which if you should here disfurnish me, You take the sum and substance that I have.
2 Out. Whither travel you ? Val. To Verona. 1 Out. Whence came you ? Val. From Milan. 3 Out. Have you long sojourn'd there? Val. Some sixteen months; and longer mighi

Val. For that which now torments me to rehearse ·
1 Out. Why, ne'er repent it, if it were done so. But were you banishi'd for so small a fault ?
Val. I was, and held me glad of such a doom, 1 Out. Have you the tongues ?
Val. My youthful travel therein made me happy; Or else I had been often miserable. 3 Out. By the bare scalp of Robin Hood's fat

Enter PROTEUS. Pro. Already have I been false to Valentine, And now I must be as unjust to Thurio. Under the colour of commending him, I have access my own love to prefer; But Silvia is too fair, too true, too holy, To be corrupted with my worthless gifts. When I protest true loyalty to her, She twits me with my falsehood to my friend; When to her beauty I commend my vows, She bids me think how I have been forsworn In breaking faith with Julia whom I lov'd : And, notwithstanding all her sudden quips, The least whereof would quell a lover's hope, Yet, spaniel-like, the more she spurns my love, The more it grows and fawneth on her still. But here comes Thurio : now must we to her window, And give some evening music to her ear.
Enter THUrio and Musicians.

Thu. Ay, but I hope, sir, that you love not here. Pro. Sir, but I do; or else I would be hence. Thu. Whom? Silvia ?
"Sudden quips, hasty, passionate reproaches.
