Ludolph. Your Dukedoms privilege will grant so much.
Your handI go. Ha! here the thunder comes
Sullen against the wind! If in two angry brows
My safety lies, then, Sigifred, Im safe.
Enter Otho and Conrad
Otho. Will you make Titan play the lackey-page
[Exeunt Conrad and Sigifred.
Ludolph. This was but half expected, my good sire,
Otho. How you indulge yourself! What can you hope for?
Ludolph. Nothing, my liege; I have to hope for nothing.
Otho. What would you, sir?
Ludolph. A lenient banishment.
Otho. And shall I let a rebel loose again
Otho. And chains too heavy for your life:
Otho. Shall be your fair Auranthe.
Ludolph. Amaze! Amaze!
Otho. To-day you marry her.
Ludolph. This is sharp jest!
Otho. No. None at all. When have I said a lie?
Ludolph. If I sleep not, I am a waking wretch.
Otho. Not a word more. Let me embrace my child.
Ludolph. I dare not. Twould pollute so good a father!
