A shrewd knave and an unhappy.
So he is. My lord that's gone made himself much
sport out of him: by his authority he remains here,
he thinks is a patent for his sauciness; and,
indeed, he has no pace, but runs where he will.
I like him well; 'tis not amiss. And I was about to
tell you, since I heard of the good lady's death and
my lord your son was upon his return home, I
moved the king my master to speak in the behalf of
daughter; which, in the minority of them both,
his majesty, out of a self-gracious remembrance, did
propose: his highness hath promised me to do
it: and, to stop up the displeasure he hath
your son, there is no fitter
matter. How does your ladyship like it?
With very much content, my lord; and I wish it
His highness comes post from Marseilles, of as able
body as when he numbered thirty: he will be here
morrow, or I am deceived by him that in such
intelligence hath seldom failed.
It rejoices me, that I hope I shall see him ere I
die. I have letters that my son will be here
to-night: I shall
beseech your lordship to remain
with me till they meet together.
Madam, I was thinking with what manners I might
safely be admitted.
You need but plead your honourable privilege.
Lady, of that I have made a bold charter; but I
thank my God it holds yet.
O madam, yonder's my lord your son with a patch of
velvet on's face: whether there be a scar under't
no, the velvet knows; but 'tis a goodly patch of
velvet: his left cheek is a cheek of two pile and a
his right cheek is worn bare.
A scar nobly got, or a noble scar, is a good livery
of honour; so belike is that.
