[Singing Arm. Sweet air ! go, tenderness of years; take this key, give enlargement to the swain ; bring him festinately hither : I must employ him in a letter to my love.
Moth. Master, will you win your love with a French brawl ?
Arm. How mean'st thou, brawling in French ?
Moth. No, my compleat Master ; but to jig off a tune at the tongue's end, canary to it with your
feet, humour it with turning up your eye-lids; figh a note and fing a note; fometimes through the throat, as if you swallow'd love with singing love; fometimes through the nose, as if you snuff d up love by smelling love; with your hat penthouse like, o'er the shop of your eyes ; with your arms cross’d on your thin-belly doublet, like a rabbet on a spit; or your hands in your pocket, like a man after the old painting ; and keep not too long in one tune, but a snip, and away: these are 'complishments, these are humours; these betray nice wenches that would be betray'd without these, and make them men of note (do you notë me?) that are most affected to these?

Arm. Fetch hither the swain, he must carry me a letter.
Moth. A message well fympathiz'd; a horse to be embassador for an ass.
Arm. Ha, ha, what fay'st thou ?
Moth. Marry, Sir, you must send the ass upon the horse, for he is very slow-gated : but I go.
Arm. The way is but short; away.
Arm. Thy meaning, pretty ingenious ?
Moth. Minimè, honest Master; or rather, Master, no.
Moth. You are too swift, Sir, to say so.
Arm. Sweet smoak of rhetoric !
