Enter Antony and Dolabella.
Dola. Why would you shift it from yourself on me?
Ant. I cannot.
Dola. Then let Ventidius;
Ant. Oh, hell speak too harshly;
Dola. Nature has cast me in so soft a mould,
Dola. What you have said so sinks into my soul,
Ant. I leave you then to your sad task: Farewell.
Goes to the door, and comes back.I forgot;
Let her be told, Ill make her peace with mine:
Her crown and dignity shall be preserved,
If I have power with Cæsar.Oh, be sure
To think on that.
Dola. Fear not, I will remember.
[Antony goes again to the door, and comes back.
Ant. And tell her, too, how much I was constrained;
Dola. Trust me, Ill not forget it.
Ant. Then thats all.
[Goes out, and returns againWilt thou forgive my fondness this once more?
Tell her, though we shall never meet again,
If I should hear she took another love,
The news would break my heart.Now I must go;
For every time I have returned, I feel
My soul more tender; and my next command
Would be, to bid her stay, and ruin both.
Dola. Men are but children of a larger growth;
Enter Ventidius above.
Vent. Alone, and talking to himself? concerned too?
