ACT IV - SCENE VI. Alexandria. OCTAVIUS CAESAR's camp.
OCTAVIUS CAESAR
1    Go forth, Agrippa, and begin the fight:
2    Our will is Antony be took alive;
3    Make it so known.
AGRIPPA
4    Caesar, I shall.
Exit

OCTAVIUS CAESAR
5    The time of universal peace is near:
6    Prove this a prosperous day, the three-nook'd world
7    Shall bear the olive freely.
Enter a Messenger

Messenger
8    Antony
9    Is come into the field.
OCTAVIUS CAESAR
10   Go charge Agrippa
11   Plant those that have revolted in the van,
12   That Antony may seem to spend his fury
13   Upon himself.
Exeunt all but DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS
14   Alexas did revolt; and went to Jewry on
15   Affairs of Antony; there did persuade
16   Great Herod to incline himself to Caesar,
17   And leave his master Antony: for this pains
18   Caesar hath hang'd him. Canidius and the rest
19   That fell away have entertainment, but
20   No honourable trust. I have done ill;
21   Of which I do accuse myself so sorely,
22   That I will joy no more.
Enter a Soldier of CAESAR's

Soldier
23   Enobarbus, Antony
24   Hath after thee sent all thy treasure, with
25   His bounty overplus: the messenger
26   Came on my guard; and at thy tent is now
27   Unloading of his mules.
DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS
28   I give it you.
Soldier
29   Mock not, Enobarbus.
30   I tell you true: best you safed the bringer
31   Out of the host; I must attend mine office,
32   Or would have done't myself. Your emperor
33   Continues still a Jove.
Exit

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS
34   I am alone the villain of the earth,
35   And feel I am so most. O Antony,
36   Thou mine of bounty, how wouldst thou have paid
37   My better service, when my turpitude
38   Thou dost so crown with gold! This blows my heart:
39   If swift thought break it not, a swifter mean
40   Shall outstrike thought: but thought will do't, I feel.
41   I fight against thee! No: I will go seek
42   Some ditch wherein to die; the foul'st best fits
43   My latter part of life.
Exit
