Mal. [Within.] Sir Topas ! Sir Topas !
Mal. [Within.) Thou might'st have done this without thy beard and gown; he sees thee not.
Sir T. To him, in thine own voice, and bring me word how thou find'st him, [Exit, with Maria.
Clown. (Singing] Hey Robin, jolly Robin, tell how my lady does.
Mal. [Within.] Ģood fool, as ever thou wilt deserve well at my hand, help me to a candle, and pen, ink, and paper; as I am a gentleman, I will live to be thankful to thee for't.
Clown. Master Malvolio!
Mal. [Within.) Fool, there never was man so notoriously abused! I am as well in my wits, fool, as thou art.
Clown. But as well! then thou art mad, indeed, if you be no better in
wits than a fool! Mal. [Within.] Good fool, some ink, paper, and light; and convey what I set down to my lady; It shall advantage thee more than ever the bearing of letter did.
Clown. I will help you to't. But, tell me true, are you not mad, indeed, or do you but counterfeit ?
Mal. [Within.] Believe me, I am not; I tell thee true.
Clown. Nay, I'll ne'er believe a madman, till I see his brains. I will fetch you light, and paper, and ink.
Mal. [Within.) Fool, I'll requite it in the highest degree; 1 prythee, begone! Clown. (Singing.] I am gone, sir, and anon, sir, 'i'll be with you again.
Seb. This is the air; that is the glorious san;
Enter OLIVIA and PRIEST.
Seb. I'll follow this good man, and
with you; And, having sworn truth, ever will be true. Oliv. Then lead the way, good father ; -And
heavens so shine, That they may fairly note this act of mine! (Exeunt.
ACT THE FIFTH.
Enter Clown and FABIAN, Fab. Now, as thou lov'st me, let me see his letter.
Clown. Good Master Fabian, grant me another request.
Fab. Any thing,
Fab. This is, to give a dog, and, in recompense, den sire my dog again.
Enter DUKE und VIOLA.
Duke, I know thee well; How dost thou, my good fellow?
Clown. Truly, sir, the better for my foc , and the worse for my friends.
Duke. Just the contrary; the better for thy friends.
that, by my foes, sir, I profit in the knowledge of myself; and, by my friends, I am abused. If your four negatives, make your two affirmatives, why, then the worse for my friends, and the better for
foes. Duke. Why, this is excellent!
Clown. By my troth, sir, no ; though it please you to be one of
friends. Duke. Thou shalt not be the worse for me. There's gold.
Clown. But, that it would be double dealing, sir, I would, you could make it another!
Duke. O, you give me ill counsel.
Clown. Put your grace in your pocket, sir, for this once, and let your flesh and blood obey it.
Duke. Well, I will be so much a sinner, to be a double dealer;—there's another.
Clown. Primo, secundo, tertio, is a good play ; and the old saying is, the third pays for all: the triplet, sir, is a good tripping measure: or the bells of St. Bennet, sir, may put you in mind, One, two, three.
Duke. You can fool no more money out of me at this throw: if you will let your lady know, I am here, to speak with her, and bring her along with you, it may awake

Duke. That face of his, I do remember well;
With the most noble bottom of our fleet,
1 Offi. Orsino, this is that Antonio,
Viola. He did me kindness, sir; drew on my side ; But, in conclusion, put strange speech upon me, I know not what 'twas, but distraction.
Duke. Notable pirate! thou salt-water thief! What foolish boldness brought thee to their mercies, Whom thou, in terms so bloody, and so dear, Hast made thine enemies ?
Ant. Orsino, noble sir,
Viola. How can this be?
