Surpris'd him suddenly; and brought him hither, Aar. Indeed, I was their tutor to instruet them; To use as you think needful of the inan.

That codding spirit had they from their mother, Luc. O worthy Goth! this is the incarnate devil, As sure a card as ever won the set: That robb'd Andronicus of his good hand :

That bloody mind, I think, they learn'd of me. This is the pearl that pleas'd your empress' eye;' As true a dog as ever fought at head. And here's the base fruit of his burning lust. Well, let my deeds be witness of my worth. Say, wall-ey'd slave, whither would'st thou convey I train'd thy brethren to that guileful hole This growing image of thy fiend-like face ?

And hid the gold within the letter mention'd, A halter, soldiers; hang him on this tree,

Confederate with the queen and her two sons ; And by his side his fruit of bastardy.

And what not done, that thou hast cause to rue, Aar. Touch not the boy, he is of royal blood. Wherein I had no stroke of mischief in it?

Luc. Too like the sire for ever being good. I play'd the cheater for thy father's hand;
First, hang the child, that he may see it sprawl; And, when I had it, drew myself apart,
A sight to sex the father's soul withal.

And almost broke my heart with extreme laughter. Get me a ladder.

I pry'd me through the crevice of a wall, (A ladder brought, which Aaron is obliged to When, for his hand he had his two sons' heads : ascend.

Lucius, save the child; That both mine eyes were rainy like to his ; And bear it from me to the empress.

And when I told the empress of this sport, If thou do this, I'll show thee wondrous things, She swounded almost at my pleasing tale, That highly may advantage thee to hear :

And, for my tidings, gave me twenty kisses. If thou wilt not, befall what may befall,

Luc. Art thou not sorry for these heinous deeds ?
Thy child'shall live, and I will see it nourish'd. Aar. Ay, that I had not done a thousand more.
Aar. An if it please thee? why, assure thee, Even now I curse the day (and yet, I think,

Few come within the compass of my curse,)
'Twill vex thy soul to hear what I shall speak: Wherein I did not some notorious ill :
For I must talk of murders, rapes, and massacres, As kill a man, or else devise his death ;
Acts of black night, abominable deeds,

Ravish a maid, or plot the way to do it ;
Complots of mischief, treason; villanies

Accuse some innocent, and forswear myself: Ruthful to hear, yet piteously perform'd:

Set deadly enmity between two friends; And this shall all be buried by my death,

Make poor men's cattle break their necks; Unless thou swear to me, my child shall live. Set fire on barns and haystacks in the night,

Luc. Tell on thy mind; I say, thy child shall live. And bid the owners quench them with their tears. Aar. Swear, that he shall, and then I will begin. Oft have I digg'd up dead men from their graves, Luc. Who should I swear by ? thou believ'st no And set them upright at their dear friends' doors, god;

Even when their sorrows almost were forgot ; That granted, how canst thou believe an oath? And on their skins, as on the bark of trees,

Aar. What if I do not? as, indeed, I do not: Have with my knife carved in Roman letters,
Yet,- for I know thou art religious,

Let not your sorrow die, though I am dead.
And hast a thing within thee, called conscience; Tut, I have done a thousand dreadful things,
With twenty popish tricks and ceremonies, As willingly as one would kill a lly;
Which I have seen thee careful to observe,

And nothing grieves me heartily indeed,
Therefore I urge thy oath ;-For that, I know, But that I cannot do ten thousand more.
An idiot holds his bauble for a god,

| Luc. Bring down the devil; for he must not die And keeps the oath, which by that god he swears ; So sweet a death, as hanging presently. To that I'll urge him :-Therefore, thou shalt row Aar. If there be devils, would I were a devil, By that same god, what god soe'er it be,

To live and burn in everlasting fire ;
That thou ador'st and hast in reverence,

So I might have your company in hell,
To save my boy, to nourish, and bring him up; But to torment you with my bitter tongue !
Or else I will discover nought to thee.
