What have you done with them?

PHIL. They're gone to Pluto's kingdom, to pro

vide

A place for thee, and to attend thee there;
But, lest they should be tir'd with too long
Expecting hopes; come, brave spirits of Spain!
This is the Moor, the actor of these evils;
Thus thrust him down to act among the devils.

[Stabs him.

ELEAZ. And am I thus dispatch'd! Had I but breath'd the space of one hour longer, I would have fully acted my revenge : But oh! now pallid death bids me prepare, And haste to Charon for to be his fare. I come, I come: but ere my glass is run, I'll curse you all; and cursing end my life. May'st thou, lascivious queen, whose damn'd charms Bewitch'd me to the circle of thy arms,

Unpity'd die, consum'd with loathed lust,

Which thy venerous mind hath basely nurs'd!

And for you, Philip, may your days be long,
But clouded with perpetual misery!
May thou, Hortenzo, and thy Isabel,
Be fetch'd alive by furies into hell,

There to be damn'd for ever. Oh! I faint;
Devils, come claim your right, and when I am
Confin'd within your kingdom, then shall I

Out-act you all in perfect villany.

[Dies.

PHIL. Take down his body while his blood streams

forth;

His acts are past, and our last act is done.

Now do I challenge my hereditary right

To the royal Spanish throne, usurp'd by him,
In which, in all your sights, I thus do plant myself.
Lord Cardinal, and you the queen my mother,
I pardon all those crimes you have committed.
Q. Mo. I'll now repose myself in peaceful rest,
And fly unto some solitary residence,

Where I'll spin out the remnant of my life

In true contrition for my past offences.

PHIL. And now, Hortenzo, to close up your wound,

I here contract my sister unto thee,
With comic joy to end a tragedy.

And for the barbarous Moor, and his black train,
Let all the Moors be banished from Spain.

HERO AND LEANDER.
