Dem. Wench good enough,
But that she talks too loud.
Pet. She talks to the purpose.
Which never woman did yet. Shell hold grappling,
And he that lays on
best is her best servant;
All other loves are mere catching of dottrels,
Stretching of legs out only, and trim
Here comes the general.
Enter Suetonius, Curius, and Macer.
Suet. Im glad I have found ye:
Are those come in yet that pursued bold Caratach?
Pet. Not yet, sir, for I think they mean to lodge him;
Take him I know they dare not, twill be dangerous.
Suet. Then haste, Petillius, haste to Penius:
I fear the strong conceit of what disgrace
He has pulld upon
himself, will be his ruin;
I fear his soldiers fury too; Haste presently;
I would not lose him for all Britain.
Give him, Petillius
Pet. That that shall choke him.
Suet. All the noble counsel,
His fault forgiven too, his place, his honour
Pet. For me, I think; as handsome
Suet. All the comfort;
And tell the soldier, twas on our command
He drew not to the battle.
Pet. I conceive, sir,
And will do that shall cure all.
Suet. Bring him with you
Before the queens fort, and his forces with him;
There you shall find us following
of our conquest.
Pet. The best I may.
Suet. And, noble gentlemen,
Up to your companies! well presently
Upon the queens pursuit. Theres
Till she be seizd; without her, nothing won.
[Exeunt. Short flourish.
SCENE II.Open Country between the Camps.
Enter Caratach and Hengo.
Car. How does my boy?
Hengo. I would do well; my hearts well;
I do not fear.
Car. My good boy!
Hengo. I know, uncle,
We must all die; my little brother died,
I saw him die, and he died smiling; sure
no great pain int, uncle. But pray tell me,
Whither must we go when we are dead?
Car. Strange questions!
Why, to the blessedest place, boyEver sweetness
And happiness dwells
Hengo. Will you come to me?
