me do? Ther. A juggling trick, to be-secretly open. Dio. What did he swear you would bestow on

Dio. Good night.
Hold, patience !
How now, Trojan ?
Diomed, Dio. No, no, good night: l’lĮ be your fool no

Hark! one word in your ear.
Tro. Behold, I pray you !

will. But, now you have it, take it. Dio.
Whose was it? Cres. By all Diana's waiting-women yonder*, And by herself, I will not tell you whose.
