i Off. This is the Man, do thy Office. 2 Off. Anthonio, I arrest thee at the Suit of Duke Orfino. Ant. You mistake me, Sir. i Off. No, Sir, no Jot; I know your Favour well; Tho now you have no Sea-cap on your Head. Take him away, he knows I know him well.

Ant. I must obey. This comes with seeking you;
But there's no Remedy. I shall answer it.
What will you do? Now my Necessity
Makes me to ask you for my Purse. It grieves me
Much more; for what I cannot do for you,
Than what befals my self: You stand amaz’d,
But be of Comfort.

2 Off. Come, Sir, away.
Ant. I must intreat of you some of that Mony.

Vio. What Mony, Sir?
For the fair Kindness you have shew'd me here,
And part being prompted by your present Trouble,
Out of my lean and low Ability
I'll lend you something; my having is not much,
I'll make Division of my Present with you:
Hold, there's half my Coffer.

Ant. Will you deny me now?
Is't possible, that my Deserts to you
Can lack Persuasion? Do not tempt my Misery,
Lest that it make me so unfound a Man,
As to upbraid you with thofe Kindnesses
That I have done for you.

Vie. I know of none,
Nor know I you by Voice, or any Feature.
I hate Ingratitude more in a Man,
Than Lying, Vainness, Babling Drunkenness,
Or any Taint of Vice, whose strong Corruption
Inhabits our frail Blood.

Ant. Oh Heav'ns themselves !
2 Off. Come, Sir, I pray you go.

Ant. Let me speak a little. This Youth that you see here,
I snatcht one Half out of the Jaws of Death,
neliev'd him with such San&ity of Love,
And to his Image, which methought did promise
Most venerable Worth, did I Devotion.

i Off. What's that to us, the Time goes by; away.

Ant. But oh, how vild an Idol proves this God! !
Thou hast, Sebastian, done good Feature shame,
In Nature there's no Blemish but the Mind:
None can be call'd Deform'd but the Unkind.
Virtue is Beauty, but the beauteous Evil
Are empty Trunks, o'er-Aourish'd by the Devil.

1 Off The Man grows mad, away with him :
Come, come, Sir.
Ant. Lead me on.

[Exit. V1o. Methinks his Words do from such Passion fly, That he believes himself, so do not I: Prove true Imagination, oh prove true, That I, dear Brother, be now ta'en for you.

Sir To. Come hither, Knight, come hither, Fabian; we'll whisper o'er a Couplet or two of most fage Saws.

Vio. He nam'd Sebastian; I my Brother know Yer living in my Glass; even such, and so In favour was my Brother, and he went Still in this Fashion, Colour, Ornament, For him I imitate: Oh if it prove, Tempests are kind, and salt Waves fresh in Love. [Exit.

Sir To. A very dishonest paltry Boy, and more a Coward than a Hare; his Dishonesty appears in leaving his Friend here in Neceflity, and denying him; and for his Cowardship ask Rabian.

Fab. A Coward, a most devout Coward, religious in it.

Sir And, 'Slid I'll after him again, and beat him.
Sir To. Do, cuff him foundly, but never thy Sword.
Sir And And I do not.
Fab. Come, let's see the Event.
Sir To. I dare lay any Mony 'twill be nothing yet.
