Egł. This is the hour that madam Silvia Entreated me to call, and know her mind; There's some great matter she'd employ me in... Madam, madam!

SILVIA, above at her Window.

Sil. Who calls ?

Egl. Your servant, and your friend;
One that attends your ladyship's command.

Sil. Sir Eglamour, a thousand times good morrow.
Egl. As many, worthy lady, to yourself.

231 According to your ladyship's impose, I am thus early come to know what service It is your pleasure to command me in.

Sil. O Eglamour, thou art a gentlenian (Think not I fatter, for, I swear, I do not), Valiant, wise, remorseful, well accomplish'd. Thou art not ignorant, what dear good will I bear unto the banish'd Valentine; Nor how my father would enforce me marry 24 Vain Thurio, whom my very soul abhors. Thyself hast lov'd; and I have heard thee say, No grief did ever come so near thy heart, As when thy lady and thy true love dy'd, Upon whose grave thou vow’dst pure chastity. Giij


Sir Eglamour, I would to Valentine,
To Mantua, where, I hear, he makes abode;
And, for the ways are dangerous to pass,
I do desire thy worthy company,
Upon whose faith and honour I repose.

Urge not my father's anger, Eglamour,
But think upon my grief, a lady's grief;
And on the justice of my flying hence,
To keep me from a most unholy match,
Which heaven, and fortune, still reward with

I do desire thee, even from a heart
As full of sorrows as the sea of sands,
To bear me company, and go with me :
If not, to hide what I have said to thee,
That I may venture to depart alone.

Egb. Madam, I pity much your grievances;
Which since I know they virtuously are plac'd,
I give consent to go along with you ;
Recking as little what betideth me,
As much I wish all good befortune you.
When will you go?

Sil. This evening coming.
Egl. Where shall I meet you?

Sil. At friar Patrick's cell,
Where I intend holy confession.

270 Egl. I will not fail your ladyship : Good morrow, gentle lady.

Sil. Good morrow, kind Sir Eglamour. [Exeunt.
