Laun. Yes, truly:-for, look you, the sins of the father are to be laid upon the children: therefore, I promise you, I fear you. I was always plain with you, and so pow I speak my agitation of the mat: ter: Therefore, be of good cheer; for, truly, I think, you are damn'd. There is but one hope in it that can do you any good; and that is but a kind of bastard hope neither.
Jes. And what hope is that, I pray thee?
Laun. Marry, you may partly hope that your father got you not, that you are not the Jew's daughter.
Jes. That were a kind of bastard hope, indeed; so the sins of my mother should be visited upon me.
Laun. Truly then I fear you are damo'd both by father and mother: thus when I shun Scylla
, your father, I fall into Charybdis, your mother: well, you are gone both ways.
Jes. I shall be saved by my husband; he hath made me a Christian.
Laun. Truly, the more to blame he: we were well live, one by another: This making of Christians Christians enough before; e'en as many as could will raise the price of hogs; if we grow all to be pork-eaters, we shall not shortly have a rasher op

Lor. I shall apswer that better to the common wealth, than you can the getting up of the negro's belly: the Moor is with child by you,
Launcelot. Laun. It is much, that the Moor should be more than reason ; but if she be less than an honest woman, she is, indeed, more than I took her for,
Lor. How every fool can play upon the word! I think, the best grace of wit will shortly turn into silence; and discourse grow commendable in none only but parrots._Goib, sirrah; bid them pre. pare for dinner.
Laun. That is done, sir; they have all stomacbs.
Lor. Goodly lord, what a wit-svapper are you ! then bid them prepare dinner.
Laun. That is done too, sir; only, cover is the word.
Lor, Will you cover then, sir?
Lor. Yet more quarrelling with occasion! Wilt thou show the whole wealth of thy wit in an instant? I pray, thee, understand a plain man in his plain meaning: go to thy fellows; bid them cover the table, serve in the meat, and we will come in to dinner.
Laun. For the table, sir, it shall be served in; for the meat, sir, it shall be covered; for your coming in to dinner, sir, why, let it be as humours and conceits shall govern.
