He shall not hear thee; or from Cæsar's camp
Say, I am none of thine.
Ant. What say'st thou?
He is with Cæsar.
Eros. Sir, his chests and treasure
He has not with him.
Ant. Is he gone?
Sold. Most certain.
Ant. Go, Eros, send his treasure after; do it;
SCENE VI. CESAR'S Camp before Alexandria.
Flourish. Enter CESAR, with AGRIPPA, ENOBARBUS, and Others.
Cas. Go forth, Agrippa, and begin the fight:
Our will is, Antony be took alive;
Make it so known.
Agr. Cæsar, I shall.
Cas. The time of universal peace is near:
Prove this a prosperous day, the three-nook'd world
Shall bear the olive freely.
Enter a Messenger.
Is come into the field.
Cas. Go, charge Agrippa
Plant those that have revolted in the van,
[Exeunt CESAR and his Train.
Eno. Alexas did revolt; and went to Jewry,
Enter a Soldier of CESAR's.
Sold. Enobarbus, Antony
Hath after thee sent all thy treasure, with
Eno. I give it you.
Sold. Mock me not, Enobarbus.
I tell you true: Best that you saf'd the bringer
Or would have done't myself. Your emperor
Eno. I am alone the villain of the earth,
And feel I am so most. O Antony,
Thou mine of bounty, how would'st thou have paid
Thou dost so crown with gold! This blows my heart:
Shall outstrike thought: but thought will do't, I feel.
I fight against thee !-No: I will go seek
Some ditch, wherein to die; the foul'st best fits
My latter part of life.
SCENE VII.-Field of Battle between the Camps.
Alarum. Drums and Trumpets. Enter AGRIPPA, and Others.
Agr. Retire, we have engag'd ourselves too far: Cæsar himself has work, and our oppression Exceeds what we expected.
Alarum. Enter ANTONY, and SCARUS wounded. Scar. O my brave emperor, this is fought indeed! Had we done so at first, we had driven them home With clouts about their heads.
Ant. Thou bleed'st apace.
Scar. I had a wound here that was like a T,
But now 'tis made an H.
Ant. They do retire.
Scar. We'll beat 'em into bench-holes; I have yet Room for six scotches more.
Eros. They are beaten, sir; and our advantage serves
For a fair victory.
Scar. Let us score their backs,
And snatch 'em up, as we take hares, behind;
'Tis sport to maul a runner.
Ant. I will reward thee
Once for thy spritely comfort, and ten-fold
Scar. I'll halt after.
SCENE VIII.-Under the Walls of Alexandria.
Alarum. Enter ANTONY, marching; SCARUS, and For
Ant. We have beat him to his camp; Run one before, And let the queen know of our guests.-To-morrow, Before the sun shall see us, we'll spill the blood That has to-day escap'd. I thank you all; For doughty-handed are you; and have fought Not as you serv'd the cause, but as it had been Each man's like mine; you have shown all Hectors. Enter the city, clip your wives, your friends, Tell them your feats; whilst they with joyful tears Wash the congealment from your wounds, and kiss The honoured gashes whole.-Give me thy hand; [TO SCARUS.
Enter CLEOPATRA, attended.
To this great fairy I'll commend thy acts,
Make her thanks bless thee.-O thou day o' the world,
Through proof of harness to my heart, and there
Cleo. Lord of lords!
O infinite virtue! com'st thou smiling from
Ant. My nightingale,
We have beat them to their beds. What, girl? though
Do something mingle with our brown; yet have we
Cleo. I'll give thee, friend,
An armour all of gold; it was a king's.
Ant. He has deserv'd it, were it carbuncled Like holy Phœbus' car.-Give me thy hand; Through Alexandria make a jolly march ;
Bear our hack'd targets like the men that owe them:
To camp this host, we all would sup together;
Make mingle with our rattling tabourines;
That heaven and earth may strike their sounds toge
Applauding our approach.
SCENE IX.-CESAR'S Camp.
Sentinels on their Post. Enter ENOBARBUS. 1st Sold. If we be not reliev'd within this hour, We must return to the court of guard: The night
