That I am ready to distrust mine eyes,
Enter OLIVIA and a Priest.
you; And, having sworn truth, ever will be true. Oli. Then, lead the way, good father; And the
heavens so shine, That they may fairly note this act of mine! [Exeunt.
SCENE I.-The Street before Olivia's House.
Enter Clown and FABIAN. Fab. Now, as thou lovest me, let me see his letter.
Clo. Good master Fabian, grant me another request.
Fab. Any thing.
Fab. That is, to give a dog, and, in recompense, desire my dog again.
Enter Duke, VIOLA, and Attendants. Duke. Belong you to the lady Olivia, friends ? Clo. Ay, sir; we are some of her trappings.
Duke. I know thee well; How dost thou, my good fellow?
Clo. Truly, sir, the better for my foes, and the worse for my friends.
Duke. Just the contrary; the better for thy friends.
Clo. Marry, sir, they praise me, and make an ass of me; now my foes tell me plainly I am an ass: so that by my foes, sir, I profit in the knowledge of myself; and by my friends I am abused : so that, conclusions to be as kisses, if your four negatives make your two
affirmatives, why, then the worse for my friends, and the better for my foes.
Duke. Why, this is excellent.
Clo. 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.
Clo. But that it would be double-dealing, sir, I would you could make it another.
Duke. O, you give me ill counsel.
Clo. 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.
Clo. Primo, secundo, tertio, is a good play: and the old saying is, the third pays for all: the triplex, 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 my bounty further.
Clo. Marry, sir, lullaby to your bounty, till I come again. I go, sir; but I would not have you to think, that'my desire of having is the sin of covetousness: but, as you say, sir, let your bounty take a nap, I will awake it anon.
Enter Antonio and Officers. Vio. Here comes the man, sir, that did rescue me.
Duke. That face of his I do remember well; Yet, when I saw it last, it was besmeard
As black as Vulcan, in the smoke of war:
i Off. Orsino, this is that Antonio,
Vio. 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, Be pleas’d that I shake off these names you give me; Antonio never yet was thief, or pirate, Though, I confess, on base and ground enough, Orsino's enemy. A witchcraft drew me hither : That most ingrateful boy there, by your side, From the rude sea's enrag'd and foamy mouth Did I redeem; a wreck past hope he was : His life I gave him, and did thereto add My love, without retention, or restraint, All his in dedication : for his sake, Did I expose myself, pure for his love,
Into the danger of this adverse town;
Vio. How can this be?
Ant. To-day, my lord; and for three months before, (No interim, not a minute's vacancy,) Both day and night did we keep company,
Enter Olivia and Attendants. Duke. Here comes the countess; now heaven walks
on earth. But for thee, fellow, fellow, thy words are madness: Three months this youth hath tended upon me; But more of that anon. -Take him aside. Oli. What would my lord, but that he may not
Oli. If it be aught to the old tune, my lord,
