I would my valiant master would destroy thee;
Ste. Trinculo, if you trouble him any more in's tale, by this hand, I will supplant some of your teeth. •
Trin. Why, I said nothing.
Cal. I say, by sorcery he got this isle;
STE. That's most certain.
Ste. How now shall this be compaft ? canst thou bring me to the party?
Cal. Yea, yea, my lord, I'll yield him thee asleep, Where thou may'st knock a nail into his head.
Ari. Thou liest, thou canst not.
CAL. What a py'd ninny's this ! thou scurvy patch!
Ste. Trinculo, run into no further danger : interrupt the monster one word further, and, by this hand, I'll turn my mercy out of doors, and make a stock-fish of thee.
Trin. Why, what did I ? I did nothing; I'll go further off.
Ste. Didst thou not say, he ly'd ?
[Beats him. As you like this, give me the lie another time.
Trin. I did not give thee the lie; out o' your wits, and
hearing too? A pox of your bottle ! this can fack and drinking do. A murrain on your monster, and the devil take your fingers.
CAL. Ha, ha, ha.
Ste. Now, forward with your tale; pr’ythee stand further off.
Cal. Beat him enough; after a little time
Ste. Stand further. Come, proceet.
Cal. Why, as I told thee, 'tis a custom with him
STE. Is it so brave a lass ?
Cal. Ay, lord; she will become thy bed, I warrant, And bring thee forth brave brood,
Ste. Monster, I will kill this man: his daughter and I will be king and queen, save our graces: and Triáculo an
thyself shall be vice roys. Doft thou like the plot, Trinculo?
Ste. Give me thy hand; I am sorry, I beat thee : but, while thou liv'st, keep a good tongue in thy head.
CAL. Within this half hour will he be alleep;
STE. Ay, on my honour.
Cal. Thou mak'st me merry; I am full of pleasure ; .
STE. At thy request, monster, I will do reason, any reason : come on, Trinculo, let us sing.
Flout 'em, and skout 'em; and skout 'em, and fout 'em;
thought is free.
CAL. That's not the tune.
(Ariel plays the tune on a tabor and pipe. Ste. What is this fame?
Trin. This is the tune of our catch, plaid by the picture of no-body.
Ste. If thou be'st a man, shew thyself in the likenefs; if thou be'st a devil, take't as thou lift.
Trin. O, forgive me my fins !
Ste. He that dies, pays all debts : I defie thee.
Cal. Art thou afraid
Cal. Be not afraid; the ifte is full of noises,
Sometimes a thousand twanging instruments
Ste. This will prove a brave kingdom to me, where I shall have my musick for nothing.
CAL. When Prospero is destroy'd.
Trin. The sound is going away; let's follow it, and after do our work.
Ste. Lead, monster; we'll follow. I wou'd I could see this taborer. He lays it on.
Trin. Wilt come? I'll follow Stephano, [Exeunt.

Whom thus we stray to find, and the sea mocks
