Duke. What! to perverseness ? you uncivil lady, To whose ingrate and unauspicious altars My soul the faithfull'st offerivgs hath breath'd out, 'That e'er devotion tender'd! What shall I do? Oli. Even what it please my lord, that shall be
come him. Duke. Why sliould I not, had I the heart to do it, Like to the Egyptian thief, at point of death, Kill what I love; a savage jealousy, That sometime savours nobly?--but hear me this: Since you to non-regardance cast my faith, And that I partly know the instrument That screws me from my true place in your favour, Live you, the marble-breasted tyrant, still ; But this your minion, whom, I know, you love, And whom, by heaven, I swear, I tender dearly, Ilim will I tear out of that cruel eye, Where he sits crowned in his master's spite.Come boy, with me; my thoughts are ripe in mis.

Oli. Whither, my lord ?- Cesario, husband, stay.
Ay, husband; Can be that deny
No, my lord, not I. Oli. Alas, it is the baseness of thy fear, That makes thee strangle thy propriety*: Fear not, Cesario, take thy fortunes up; Be that thou know'st thou art, and then thou art As great as that thou fear st.–0, welcome, father!

Duke. O, thou dissembling cub! what wilt thou be, When time hath sow'd a grizzle on thy caset? Or will not else thy craft so quickly grow, That thine own trip shall be thine overthrow? Farewell, and take her; but direct thy feet, Where thou and I henceforth may never meet.
Vio. My lord, I do protest,
Disovra thy property.
0, do not swear : Ilold little faith, though thou hast too much fear.
Enter Sir Andrew Ague-cheek, with his head broko.
Sir And. For the love of God, a surgeon; send one presently to sir Toby.
Oli. What's the matter?
Sir And. He has broke my head across, and has given sir Toby a bloody coxcomb too : for the love of God, your help: I had rather than forty pound, I were at home.

Sir And. Od's lifelings, here he is :-You broke my head for nothing; and that that I did, I was set on to do't by sir Toby.
Vio. Why do you speak to me? I never hurt you: You grew your sword upon me, without cause; But I bespake you fair, and hurt you not.
Sir And. If a bloody coxcomb be a hurt, you have hurt me; I think, you set nothing by a bloody coxcomb.
Enter Sir Toby Belch, drunk, led by the Clown,

Duke. How now, gentleman? how is't with you?
Sir To. That's all one; he has hurt me, avd there's the end on't. Sot, did'st see Dick surgeon, sot?
Clo. O lie's drunk, sir Toby, an hour agone; his eyes were set at eight i'the morning.
Sir To. Then he's a rogue. After a passy-measure, or a pavin*, I hate a drunken rogue.
Oli. Away with him: Who hath made this barock with them?
Sir And. I'll help you, sir Toby, because we'll be dressed together.
Sir To. Will you help an ass-head, and a cox. comb, and a knave? a thin-faced knave, a gull? Oli. Get him to bed, and let his hurt be look'd to.

Ant. Sebastian are you i
Fear'st thou that, Antonio?
Seb. Do I stand there? I never had a brother : Nor can there be that deity in my nature, Of here and every where. I had a sister, Whom the blind waves and surges have devour'd:Of charityt, what kin are you to me? [To Viola.
