ACT III - SCENE III. A park near the palace.
Enter three Murderers

First Murderer
1    But who did bid thee join with us?
Third Murderer
2    Macbeth.
Second Murderer
3    He needs not our mistrust, since he delivers
4    Our offices and what we have to do
5    To the direction just.
First Murderer
6    Then stand with us.
7    The west yet glimmers with some streaks of day:
8    Now spurs the lated traveller apace
9    To gain the timely inn; and near approaches
10   The subject of our watch.
Third Murderer
11   Hark! I hear horses.
BANQUO
Within
12    Give us a light there, ho!
Second Murderer
13   Then 'tis he: the rest
14   That are within the note of expectation
15   Already are i' the court.
First Murderer
16   His horses go about.
Third Murderer
17   Almost a mile: but he does usually,
18   So all men do, from hence to the palace gate
19   Make it their walk.
Second Murderer
20   A light, a light!
Enter BANQUO, and FLEANCE with a torch

Third Murderer
21   'Tis he.
First Murderer
22   Stand to't.
BANQUO
23   It will be rain to-night.
First Murderer
24   Let it come down.
They set upon BANQUO

BANQUO
25   O, treachery! Fly, good Fleance, fly, fly, fly!
26   Thou mayst revenge. O slave!
Dies. FLEANCE escapes

Third Murderer
27   Who did strike out the light?
First Murderer
28   Wast not the way?
Third Murderer
29   There's but one down; the son is fled.
Second Murderer
30   We have lost
31   Best half of our affair.
First Murderer
32   Well, let's away, and say how much is done.
Exeunt
