G*m. How now, captain Fluallen f eaoa yon
from the bridxer

Fly. I aasuie you. there m Toiy eaealleBt aer-
vice oommiited at the pridge.

Gom. Is the duke of Exetor safe T

Ftu, The duke of EieCer is aa m^aaaiaMMa m
AammemiMin : and a man that I love and honour
with ray aoui. and my heart, and my duty, and
my life, and mv livinga.and mv ottermoat powers :
he hi not, (God he praii««l and pleaaed I) any hurt
in '^he *orld ; but keeps the pridge moat valiantly,
with eaoollent dianplina. I'hare ia an ansicn
there nt the pridge,— I think, hi my very con*
aaenee, he ia as valiant aa Mark Antony ; and b«
M a man of no estimation Ift the 'orid : bat I dkl
aeo liim do gallant aerrioe.

Oow. What do yon call him T

Omf. I know him not.

FbL Do yon not know him f Hers oonies th«

Pist, Captain,! thee bear n ch to do »• feEVonn :
Tl»e duke of Exeter doth love thee well.

Fbt. Ay, I pnuae Got ; and I have merited tome
love at his hands.

Of buxom valour, hath.— by cruel fiito.
And giddy fortnue's funoas fickle wheel.
That goddess blind.
That stands upon the rolling reatlesa atooe,—

Flm Br yi»ur patience, ancMtnt Pistol. Fortune
ia painted plind. with n muffler befina her eyes,
to sixiiify to sou that fortune ia plind : And ahe
ia painted alao with a wheel ; to sigmfy Ui you.
which is the .nwind of it. that ahe is turning, and
inconstant, and variations, and mutahilities : and
her f«iot, look you.ia fixed upon a anheneal stone,
wliich riJIs, and rolls, and rolla ;— In good truth,
the poet is make a most excel lent denBnp(i<«i of
fi»rtune : ibrtone, Umtk you. ia an excellent moral.

I'uL Fortune la Banlolpb^ft foe, and frowna oa
For he hath stol'n a pir, and hanged moat 'a ba.
A damned death !

Let galfowa gape fiar dog. let man go free.
And let not hemp his wind-pipe suffocate :
But Exeter hath given him the doom of death.
For pur of little pnce.

Therefore, goapeak. the duke will hear thy voice;
And kit not BartJolph's vital thread be cut
With edge of pennv oorti, and vile repriMeh :
Speak, captain, for his life, and I will thee requite.

If your pnre maidens fall into the hand
Of hot nnd forrring violation ?
What rein nan hold lioenti<Hia wjckedneas.
When down the bill tie holds his fieroe career?
We may as bootlnas spend our vain oummand
Upon the enntgnd sohliera in their spoil,
As send precepts to the Leviathan
To come aslHMV. Therefore, you mrn of Hiirflenr,
Take pity of your town, siid of your people.
Whiles yet my soldiers are in my cnmmaiHl ;
Whiles yet tlie oimiI nnd temperate wind of grace

Of deadlv murder, apoil, and villiiny.

Defile the locks of your shrill-shriekingdaoghters:
Your rathem taken by the silver beanls.

B09. As young as I am, I hare observed these
three swashers. I am buy to them all three : but
all they three, though they would serve me. could
not he man in me; for, indeed, three such anticks
do not siiMMiiii 10 a man. For Burdolph,— he is
white-liver'd.niid reil-fiiced; by the ineuns where-
of, 'a (bees it out, bnt fighU nut Fur PikUiI,— he
hath a killing toncae, and a quiet sword ; by the
means whereof 'a breaks words, and keeps whole
weapons. For Nym, — lie hath heard, thai men
of few words are the best men ; and therefore
he sooms to say bis prayers, lest 'u should be
thought a coward : but his few bad words are
match'd with as few good deeds; fur 'a never
broke any man's head but his own ; uial that wss
against a post, when he was drunk. They will
ileal any thing, aial call it.— purchnse. Bardolph
stole a lute-CMse ; bore it twelve leagues, and sold
it fur three halfpence Nym and Bardolph are
sworn bruthers in lilching; and in Calais they
stole a flte-sliovel : I knew, by that piece of ser-
vice, the men woukl carry o«ials. I'hey would
have me as familiar with men's pockets as their
ghives or their handkerchief: whicli makes
much waiiist my manhood, if 1 should take from
auothdnt iNicket, to put into mine ; for it is plaiu
pocketing up ol wrongs. I must leave them, aiul
aeek some iietter service: their viUany goes
against my weak stomach, and therefore I most
cast It op. [Exit Buy.
