Were it but told you, should be hooted at
Like an old tale: but it appears, she lives,
Though yet she speak not. Mark a little while. -
Please you to interpose, fair Madam; kneel,
And pray your mother's blessing. Turn, good Lady;
Our Perdita is found.
(Presenting PERDITA, who kneels to HERMIONE.

Her. You Gods, look down,
And from your sacred vials pour your graces
Upon my daughter's head! Tell me, mine own,
Where hast thou been presery'd ? where liy'd ? how

found Thy father's court? for thou shalt hear, that I, Knowing by Paulina, that the oracle Gave hope thou wast in being, have presery'd

myself, To see the issue.

Paul. There's time enough for that;
Lest they desire, upon this push, to trouble
Your joys with like relation. Go together,
You precious winners all ; your exultation
Partake to every one. I, an old turtle,
Will wing me to some wither'd bough; and there
My mate, that's never to be found again,
Lament till I am lost.

Leon. O peace, Paulina;
Thou should'st a husband take by my consent,
As I by thine, a wife: this is a match,
And made between's by vows. Thou hast found

mine; But how, is to be question'd: for I saw her, As I thought, dead; and have, in vain, said many A prayer pon her grave: I'll not seek far (For him, 1 partly know his mind, ) to find thee An honourable husband: Come, Camillo, And take her by the hand; whose worth, and honesty:

Is richly noted; and here justify'd
By 11s, a pair of Kings. Let's from this place.
What?
Look upon my brother;

both your

pardons, That e'er I put between your holy looks My ill suspicion.

This your son-in-law,
And son unto the King, (whom heavens directing,)
Is troth-plight to your daughter.

· Good Paulina,
Lead us from hence; where we may leisurely
Each one demand, and answer to his part
Perform'd in this wide gap of time, since first
We were dissever'd; Hastily lead away.

( Exeunt.
