The entrance of the cell opens, and discovers Ferdi-
nand and IMiranda playing at chess

Mira. Sweet lord, you play me false.

Fer. No, my dearest love,
I would not for the world.

Mira. Yes, for a score of kingdoms yoi.. should
And I would call it fair play. [wrangle,

Alon. If this prove
A vision of the island, one dear son
Shall I twice lose.

Seb. A most high miracle I

Fer. Though the seas threaten they are merciful ;
I have curs'd them without cause.

[Ferd. kneels to Alvn.

Alon. Now all the blessings
Of a glad father compass thee about I
Arise, and say how thou cam'st here.

Mira. O ! wonder !
How many goodly creatures are there here I
How beauteous mankind is ! O brave new world.
That has such people in't !

Pro. 'Tis new to thee. fat play ?

Alon. What is this maid, with whom thou wast
Your eld'st acquaintance cannot be three hours :
Is she the goddess that hath sever'd us.
And brought us thus together ?

Fer. Sir, she's mortal ;
But, by immortal providence, she's mine ;
I chose her, when I could not ask my fatlier
For his advice; nor thought I had ore : she
Is daughter to this famous duke of Milan,
Of whom so often I have heard renown.
But never saw before ; of whom I hare
Recei^'d a second life, and second father
This lady makes him to me.

Alon. I am hers :
But O, how oddly will it sound, that I
Must ask my child forgiveness ;

Pro. There, sir, stop ;
Let us not burden our remembrances
With a heaviness that's gone.

Gon. i have inly wept,
Or should have spoke ere this. Look down, you gods,
And on this couple drop a blessed crown ;
For it is you, that have ohalk'd forth the way
Which brought us hither !

Alon. I say. Amen, Gonzalo !
Gon. 'Was Milan thrust from Milan, that his issue
Should become kings of Naples ? O, rejoice
Bevond a common joy ; and set it down
with gold on lasting pillars : In one voyage
Did Claribel her husband find at Tunis ;
j And Ferdinand, her brother, found a wife.

Duke of Mi\an, father to Silvia.

Antonio, father to Proteus.
Thurio, a foolish rival to Valentine.
Eglamour, agent for Silvia, in her escape.
Speed, actomnish servant to Valentine.
I^aunce, servant to Proteus.
Panthino, servant to Antonio.

SCENE, Sometimes in Verona; sometimes in Milan ; and on the frontiers 0/ Mantua

Julia, a lady {{/"Verona, beloved by Proteus.
Silvia, the duke's daughter, beloved by Valentine.
Lucetta, waiting-roomun to Julia.

Servants, musicians.


SCENE I An open place in Verona.

Enter Valentine and Proteus.

Vat. v^EASE to persuade, my loving Proteus;
Home-keeping youth have ever homely wits !
Wer't not, affection chains thy tender days
To the sweet glances of thy honour'd love.

Than living dully sluggardiz'd at home.
Wear out thy youth with shapeless idleness.
But, since thou lov'st, love still , and thrive therein.
Even as I would, when I to love begin.

Pro. Wilt thou be gone ' Sweet Valentine, adieu I
Think on thy Proteus, when thou, haply, seeit
Some rare note-worthy object in thy travel :
Wish me partaker in thy hajipiness,
When thou dost meet good hap : and, in thy danger.
If ever danger do environ thee,
Commend thy grievance to my holy prayers,
For I will be thy bead's-man, Valentine.

Val. And on a love-book pray for my success.

Pro. Upon some book I love, I'll pray for thee.

Vat. That's on some shallow story of deep love.
How young Leander cross'd the Hellespont.

Pro. That's a deep story of a deeper love ;
For he was more than over shoes in love.

Val. 'Tis true ; for you are over boots in love.
And yet you never swam the Hellespont.

Pro. Over the boots ? nay, give me not the boots.

Val. No, I'll not, for it boots thee not.

Pro. What ?

Val. To be

In love, where scorn is bought with groans; coy

With heart-sore sighs ; one fading moment's mirth.
With twenty watchful, weary, tedious nights :
If haply won, perhaps, a hapless gain ;
Jf lost, why then a grievous labour won ;
However, but a folly bought with wit.
Or else a wit by folly vanquished.

Pro. So, by your circumstance, you call me fool.

Val. So, by your circumstance, I fear, you'll prove.

Pro. 'Tis love you cavil at ; I am not love.

Val. Love is your master, for he masters you :
And he that is so yoked by a fool,
Methinks should not be chronicled for wise.

Pro. Vet writers say, As in the sweetest bud
The eating canker dwells, so eating love
Inhabits in the finest wits of all.

Val. And writers say, As the most forward bud
Is eaten by the canker ere it blow.
Even so by love the young and tender wit
la tum'd to folly ; blasting in the bud,
Losing his verdure even in the prime.
And ail the fair effects of future hopes.
But wherefore waste I time to counsel thee,
That art a votary to fond desire ?

Once more adieu : my father at the road
Expects ray coming, there to see me shipp'd.

Pro. And thither will I bring thee, Valentine.

Val. Sweet Proteus, no ; now let us take our leave.
At Milan, let me hear from thee by letters.
Of thy success in love, and what news else
Betideth here in absence of thy friend ;
And I likewise will visit thee with mine.

Pro. All happiness bechance to thee in Milan !

Val. As much to you at home ! andso, farewell.
[j:i< Valentine.

Pro. He after honour hunts, I after love :
He leaves his friends to dignify them more ;
I leave myself, my friends, and all for love.
Thou, Julia, thou hast metamorphos'd me ;
Made me neglect my studies, lose my time,
War with good counsel, set the world at nought,
Made wit with musing weak, heart sick with

Enter Speed.

Speed. Sir Proteus, save you : Saw you my master ?

Pro. But now he parted hence, to embark for

Speed. Twenty to one then he is shipp'd already ;
And I have jilay'd the sheep, in losing him.

Pro. Indeed a sheep doth very often stray.
An if the shepherd be awhile away.

Speed. Vou conclude that my master is a shep-
herd then, and I a sheep ?

Pro, 1 do.

Speed. Why then my horns are his horns, whe-
ther I wake or sleep.

Pro. A silly answer, and fitting well a sheep.

Speed. This proves me still a sheep.

Pro. True ; and thy master a shepherd.

Speed. Nay, that I can deny by a circumstance.

Pro. It shall go hard, but I'll prove it by another.

Speed. The shepherd seeks the sheep, and not the
sheep the shepherd ; but I seek my master, and ray
master seeks not me : therefore, 1 am no sheep.

Pro. The sheep for fodder follow the shepherd,
the shepherd for food follows not the sheep ; thou
for wages foUowest thy master, thy master for wages
follows not thee : therefore, thou art a sheep.

Speed. Such another proof will make me cry baa.

Pro. But dost thou hear ? gav'st thou my letter
to Julia ?

Speed. Ay, sir ; I, a lost mutton, gave your letter
to her, a laced mutton ; and she, a laced mutton,
gave me, a lost mutton, nothing for my labour I

Pro. Here's too small a pasture for such a store of

Speed. If the ground be overcharged, you were
best stick her.

Pro. Nay, in that you are astray ; 'twere best
pound you.

Speed. Nay, sir, less than a pound shall serve me
for carrying your letter.

Pro. You mistake ; I mean the pound, a pinfold.

Speed. From a pound to a pin ? fold it over and over

Act 2.



To be so angei'd with another letter. [Exil.

Jul. Nay, would I were so anger'd with the same '.

hateful hands, to tear such loving words I
Injurious wasps ! to feed on such sweet honey,
And kill the bees, that yield it, with your stings !
I'll kiss each several jiajier for amends.

And, here is writ ki mi Julia : unkind Julia :
As in revenge of thy ingratitude,

1 throw thy name against the bruising stones,
Trampling contemptuously on thy disdain.
Look, here is writ love-ri'imnded Protein :
Poor wounded name ! my bosom, as a bed.

Shall lodge thee, till thy wound be throughly heal'd;

And thus I search it with a sovereign kiss.

But twice, or thrice, was I'roteuj written down :

Be calm, good wind, blow not a word away,

Till I have found each letter in the letter,

Kxcept mine own name ; that some whirlwind hear

Unto a ragged, fearful, hanging rock,

.And throw^ it thence into the raging sea !

Lo, here in one line is his name twice writ,

Poor forlorn Proteus, passionate Proteus,

To tlie sweet Julia ; that I'll tear away ;

And yet I will not, sith so prettily

He couples it to his complaining names ;

'i'hus will I fold them one upon another ;

Now kiss, embrace, contend, do what you will.

Re-enter I.ucetta.

Luc, Madam ,dinner's ready, and youi father tays.

Jut. Well, let us go. [here ?

Luc. 'What, shall these papers lie like tell-tales

Jul. If you respect them, best to take them up.

Luc. Nay, I was taken up for laying them down :
Yet here they shall not lie, for catching cold.

Jul. I see you have a month's mind to them.

Luc. Ay, madam, you may say what sights you see;
I see things too, although yon judge I wink.

Jul. Come, come, will please you go ? \^Exeunt.

Enter Antonio and Panthlno.

Ant. Tell me, I'anthino, what sad talk was that.
Wherewith my brother he'.d you in the cloister?

Pan. 'Twas of his nephew I'voteus, your son.

Ant. AVhy, what of him ?

Pan. He wonder'd, that your lordship

Would suffer him to spend his youth at home ;
WTiile other men, of slender reputation.
Put forth their sons to seek ])ret"erment out :
Some, to the wars, to try their fortune there ;
Some, to discover islands far away ;
Some, to the studious universities.
For any, or for all those exercises.
He said, that Proteus, your son, was meet:
And did request me, to importune you.
To let him spend his time no more at home.
Which would be great impeachment to his age.
In having known no travel in his youth.

Ant. Nor need'st thou much importune me to that
Whereon this month I have been hammering.
J have consider'd well his loss of time ;
And how he cannot be a perfect man.
Not being try'd, and tutor'd in the world :
Experience is by industry atchiev'd,
And perfected by the swift course of time:
Then, tell me, whither were 1 best to send him ?

Pan. I think, your lordship is not ignorant.
How his companion, youthful Valentine,
Attends the emperor in his royal court.

Ant. I know it well.

Pan. 'Twere good, I think, your lordship sent him
There shall he practise tilts and tournaments.
Hear sweet discourse, converse with noblemen ;
And be in eye of every exercise,
Worthy his youth and' nobleness of birth.

Ant. 1 like thy counsel ; well hast thou advis'd :
And, that thou may'st perceive how well I like it,
'I be execution of it shall make known ;

J-ven with the speediest execution

I will despatch him to tlie emperor's court.

Pan. To morrow, may it please you, Hon Alphonso,
With other gentlemen of good esteem.
Are journeying to salute the emperor.
And to commend their service to his will.

Ant. Good company ; with them shall Proteus go :
And in good time, now will we break with him.
Enter Proteus.

Pro. Sweet love ! sweet lines ! sweet life !
Here is her hand, the agent of her heart ;
Here is her oath for love, her honour's pawn :
(), that our fathers would applaud our loves.
To seal our happiness with their consents !

heavenly Julia!

Ant. How now ? what letter are you reading there?

Pro. May't please your lordship, 'tis a word or two
Of commendation sent from Valentine,
Deliver'd by a friend that came from him.

Ant, Lend me the letter ; let me see what news.

Pro. There is no news, my lord ; but that he writes
How happily he lives, how well-belov'd.
And daily graced by the emperor ;
Wishing me with him, partner of his fortune.

Ant. And how stand you affected to his wish ?

Pro. As one relying on your lordship's will.
And not depending on his friendly wish.

Ant. My will is something sorted with his wish :
IMuse not that I thus suddenly proceed ;
For what I will, 1 will, and there an end.

1 am resolv'd, that thou shalt spend some time
With Valentinus in the emperor's court ;
\\'hat maintenance he from his friends receives,
Like exhibition shalt thou have from me.
To-morrow be in readiness to go :

Excuse it not, for I am peremptory.

Pro, My lord, I cannot be so soon provided ;
Please you, deliberate a day or two. [thee

Ant. Look, what thou want'st, :.hall be sent aftei
No more of stay ; to-morrow thou must go
Come on, lanthino ; you shall be employ'U
To hasten on his expedition.

[Exeunt Ant. and Pan.

Pro. Thus have I shunn'd the fire, for fear ol
burning ;
And drench'd me in the sea, where I am drown'd:
I fear'd to shew my father Julia's letter.
Lest he should take exceptions to my love ;
And with the vantage of mine own excuse
Hath he excepted most against my love.
O, how this spring of love resembl'eth

The uncertain glory of an April day ;
Which now shews all the beauty of the sun.

And by and by a cloud takes all away !

Re-enter Panthlno.

Pan. Sir Proteus, your father calls for you ;
He is in haste, therefore, I pray you, go.

Pro. Why, this it is ! my heart accords thereto;
And yet a thousand times it answers, no. [Exeunt.
