Alb. Great thing of us forgot!-
[The bodies of GONERIL and REGAN are brought in. Kent. Alack, why thus ?

[Kneeling. Lear. Prythee, away. Edg. 'Tis noble Kent, your friend.
Lear. A plague upon you, murderers, traitors, all !
Off. 'Tis true, my lords, he did.
Lear. Did I not, fellow ?
Kent. If fortune brag of two she loved and hated,
Lear. This is a dull sight: Are you not Kent?
Lear. He's a good fellow, I can tell you that;
Kent. No, my good lord; I am the very man ;-
Kent. That, from your first of difference and decay,
Lear. You are welcome hither.
Kent. Nor no man else; all's cheerless, dark, and deadly.
Lear. Ay, so I think.
Alb. He knows not what he says; and vain it is

SCENE, during the greater part of the Play, in Verona; once,
in the Fifth Act, at Mantua.
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;
Do, with their death, bury their parents' strife.
And the continuance of their parents' rage,
Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;
SCENE I.- A public place.
Sam. A dog of that house shall move me to stand : I will take the wall of any man or maid of Montague's.
Gre. That shows thee a weak slave; for the weakest goes to the wall. .
Sam. True; and therefore women, being the weaker vessels, are ever thrust to the wall :—therefore I will push Montague's men from the wall, and thrust his maids to the wall.
Gre, The quarrel is between our masters, and us their men.
Sam. 'Tis all one, I will show myself a tyrant: when I have fought with the men, I will be cruel with the maids; I will cut off their heads.
Gre. The heads of the maids ?
Sam. Ay, the heads of the maids, or their maidenheads; take it in what sense thou wilt.
Gre. They must take it in sense, that feel it.
Sam. Me they shall feel, while I am able to stand : and, 'tis known, I am a pretty piece of flesh.
Gre.' 'Tis well, thou art not fish; if thou hadst, thou hadst been poor John.t Draw thy tool; here comes two of the house of the Montagues.
Sam. My naked weapon is out; quarrel, I will back thee.
Gre. I will frown, as I pass by; and let them take it as they list.
Sam. Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at them; which is a disgrace to them, if they bear it.
Enter ABRAM and BELTHAZAR.
