ACT IV - SCENE III. The same.
Enter EGLAMOUR

EGLAMOUR
1    This is the hour that Madam Silvia
2    Entreated me to call and know her mind:
3    There's some great matter she'ld employ me in.
4    Madam, madam!
Enter SILVIA above

SILVIA
5    Who calls?
EGLAMOUR
6    Your servant and your friend;
7    One that attends your ladyship's command.
SILVIA
8    Sir Eglamour, a thousand times good morrow.
EGLAMOUR
9    As many, worthy lady, to yourself:
10   According to your ladyship's impose,
11   I am thus early come to know what service
12   It is your pleasure to command me in.
SILVIA
13   O Eglamour, thou art a gentleman--
14   Think not I flatter, for I swear I do not--
15   Valiant, wise, remorseful, well accomplish'd:
16   Thou art not ignorant what dear good will
17   I bear unto the banish'd Valentine,
18   Nor how my father would enforce me marry
19   Vain Thurio, whom my very soul abhors.
20   Thyself hast loved; and I have heard thee say
21   No grief did ever come so near thy heart
22   As when thy lady and thy true love died,
23   Upon whose grave thou vow'dst pure chastity.
24   Sir Eglamour, I would to Valentine,
25   To Mantua, where I hear he makes abode;
26   And, for the ways are dangerous to pass,
27   I do desire thy worthy company,
28   Upon whose faith and honour I repose.
29   Urge not my father's anger, Eglamour,
30   But think upon my grief, a lady's grief,
31   And on the justice of my flying hence,
32   To keep me from a most unholy match,
33   Which heaven and fortune still rewards with plagues.
34   I do desire thee, even from a heart
35   As full of sorrows as the sea of sands,
36   To bear me company and go with me:
37   If not, to hide what I have said to thee,
38   That I may venture to depart alone.
EGLAMOUR
39   Madam, I pity much your grievances;
40   Which since I know they virtuously are placed,
41   I give consent to go along with you,
42   Recking as little what betideth me
43   As much I wish all good befortune you.
44   When will you go?
SILVIA
45   This evening coming.
EGLAMOUR
46   Where shall I meet you?
SILVIA
47   At Friar Patrick's cell,
48   Where I intend holy confession.
EGLAMOUR
49   I will not fail your ladyship. Good morrow, gentle lady.
SILVIA
50   Good morrow, kind Sir Eglamour.
Exeunt severally
