Act 2 - Scene 2
A room in the palace.
Enter DUKE FREDERICK, with Lords
Can it be possible that no man saw them?
It cannot be: some villains of my court
Are of consent and sufferance
I cannot hear of any that did see her.
The ladies, her attendants of her chamber,
Saw her abed, and in
the morning early
They found the bed untreasured of their mistress.
My lord, the roynish clown, at whom so oft
Your grace was wont to laugh, is also missing.
Confesses that she secretly o'erheard
Your daughter and her cousin much commend
parts and graces of the wrestler
That did but lately foil the sinewy Charles;
And she believes, wherever
they are gone,
That youth is surely in their company.
Send to his brother; fetch that gallant hither;
If he be absent, bring his brother to me;
I'll make him find
him: do this suddenly,
And let not search and inquisition quail
To bring again these foolish runaways.
