1 It is not the fashion to see the lady the epilogue; 2 but it is no more unhandsome than to see the lord 3 the prologue. If it be true that good wine needs 4 no bush, 'tis true that a good play needs no 5 epilogue; yet to good wine they do use good bushes, 6 and good plays prove the better by the help of good 7 epilogues. What a case am I in then, that am 8 neither a good epilogue nor cannot insinuate with 9 you in the behalf of a good play! I am not 10 furnished like a beggar, therefore to beg will not 11 become me: my way is to conjure you; and I'll begin 12 with the women. I charge you, O women, for the love 13 you bear to men, to like as much of this play as 14 please you: and I charge you, O men, for the love 15 you bear to women--as I perceive by your simpering, 16 none of you hates them--that between you and the 17 women the play may please. If I were a woman I 18 would kiss as many of you as had beards that pleased 19 me, complexions that liked me and breaths that I 20 defied not: and, I am sure, as many as have good 21 beards or good faces or sweet breaths will, for my 22 kind offer, when I make curtsy, bid me farewell.
