Remember, I have done thee worthy service;

Ari. No, sir.
[tell me. Pro.
0, was she so? I must, Once in a month, recount what thou hast been, Which thou forget'st. This damn’d witch, Sycorax, For mischiefs manifold, and sorceries terrible To enter human hearing, from Argier, Thou know'st, was banish'd; for one thing she did, They would not take her life. Is not this true?
Ari. Ay, sir.
Pro. This blue-ey'd hag was hither brought with child, And here was left by the sailors. Thou, my slave, As thou report'st thyself, wast then her servant: And, for thou wast à spirit too delicate To act her earthly and abhorr'd commands, Refusing her grand hests, she did confine thee, By help
of her more potent ministers, And in her most unmitigable rage, Into a cloven pine; within which rift Imprison'd, thou didst painfully remain A dozen years; within which space she died, And left thee there; where thou didst vent thy groaps, As fast as mill-wheels strike: then was this island (Sxve for the son that she did litter here,
A freckled whelp, hag-born,) not honour'd with

I thank thee, master.
Pardon, master :
Do so; and after two days I will discharge thee. Ari.
That's my noble master!
Pro. Go make thyself like to a nymph o'the sea;

Pro. Come forth, I say; there's other business for thee; Come forth, thou tortoise! when?
Re-enter ARỊel, like a Water-Nymph.
My lord, it shall be done. [Erit. Pro. Thou poisonous slave, got by the devil himself Upon thy wicked dam, come forth!
Pro. For this, be sure, to-night thou shalt have cramps,
I must eat my dinner. This island's mine, by Sycorax, my mother, Which thou tak'st from me. When thou camest first, Thou strok’dst me, and mad'st much of me; would'st Water with berries in't; and teach me how [give me To name the bigger light, and how the les That burn by day and night: and then I lov'd thee, And show'd thee all the qualities o’the isle, The fresh springs, brine pits, barren place, and fertile; Cursed be I that did so!--All the charms Of Sycorax, toads, beetles, bats, light on you! For I am all the subjects that you have, Which first was mine own king; and here you sty me In this hard rock, whiles you do keep from me The rest of the island. Pro.
Thou most lying slave, Whom stripes may move, not kindness; I have us’d thee, Filth as thou art, with human care; and lodg'd thee In mine own cell, till thou didst seek to violate
The honour of my child.
Cal. O ho, O ho!-'would it had been done!
Cal. You taught me language; and my profit on't
Cal. No, 'pray thee! -
So, slave; hence!

What is't? a spirit? Lord, how it looks about! Believe me, sir, It carries a brave form : But 'tis a spirit.
Pro. No,wench; it eats and sleeps, and hath such senses As we have, such: this gallant which thou seest
