Helt. Be gone, I say : the gods have heard me swear.
Caf. “ The gods are deaf to hot and peevish vows; “ They are polluted offerings, more abhorr'u “ Than spotied livers in the facrifice.
And. O! be persuaded, do not count it holy
Caf. It is the purpose that makes strong the vow;
Hitt Hollyou still, I say;

Pan. A whoreson ptific, a whoreson rascally ptific so troubles me : and the foolilh fortune of this girl, and what one thing and what another, that I shall leave you one o' these days; and I have a rheum in mine eyes too, and such an ach in my bones, that unless a man were curs'd, I cannot tell wbat to think on't. What says she there? Troi. Words, words, mere words; no matter from
the heart : Th'effect doth operate another way. [Tearing the letter, Go, wind to wind; there turn and change together : My love with words and errors still the feeds; But edifies another with her deeds.
Pan Why, but hear you

That diffembling abominable varlet, Diamede, his got that fame fcurvy, doating, foolith young knave's fleeve of Troy, there, in his helm. | would fain see them meet; that, that fame young Trojan ass, that loves the whore there, might fend that Greek lh whoremaster villain, with the sleeve, back to the dif. sembling luxurious drab, of a sleeveless errant. O'th' other side, the policy of those crafty sneering rascals, that stale old mouse eaten dry cheese Nestor, and that same dog-fox Ulysses, is not prov'd worth a black-berry..
They fet me up in policy that mongril cur Ajax, against that dog of as bad a kind Achilles. And now is the cur Ajax prouder than the cur Achilles, and will not arm to-day: whereupon the Grecians begin to pro. claim barbarilin, and policy grows into an ill opinion.
Enter Diomede and Troilus. Soft-here comes fleeve, and t' othér.
