Page 249 - What, and how true thou art ; he will advance thee ; Some little memory of me will stir him (I know his noble nature) not to let Thy hopeful service perish too. Good Cromwell, Neglect him not ; make use now and provide For thine own future safety. Crom — O my Lord ! Must I then leave you ? Must I needs forego So good, so noble, and so true a master ?
