Came. He's irremovable, Resolv'd for flight: Now were I happy, if His going I could frame to serve my turn; Save him from danger, do him love and honour: Purchase the sight again of dear Sicilia, And that unhappy King, my master, whom I so much thirst to so e.

Enter AUT of Y curs.
Aut. Ha, ha! what a fool honesty is and trust, his sworn brother, a very simple gentlem in ' I have sold all my trumpery; not a counterfeit stone, not a riband, glass, pomander, brooch, table-book, ballad, knife, tape, glove, shoe-tye, bracelet, hornring, to keep my pack from fasting: they throng who shall buy first ; as if my trimkets had been hallowed, and brought a benediction to the buyer: by which means, I saw whose purse was best in picture; and, what I saw, to my good use, I rememherd.

Why, be so still; here's nobody will steal that from thee: Yet for the outside of thy poverty, we must make an exchange: therefore, discase thee instantly, (thou must think, there's necessity in't , ) and change garments with this gentleman: Though the pennyworth, on his side, be the worst, yet hold thee, there's some boot. Aut. I am a poor fellow, Sir: - I know ye well cnough. [Asside.
