Æmil, 9 I would, you had never seen him.

Def. So would not I; iny love doth so approve him, That even his stubborness, his cheeks, and frowns (Pr’ythee unpin me) have grace and favour' in them. .

Æmil. I have laid : those sheets you bad me on the bed.

Def. All's one. Good Father! how foolish are our minds! If I do die before thee pr’ythee shroud me In one of those same sheets.

Æmil. Come, come; you talk.

Def. My mother had a maid call’d Barbara.
She was in love; " and he she lov’d, prov'd w mad,
And did forsake her. She had a song of willow,
An old thing 'twas, but it express'd her fortune,
And she died finging it. That song to-night
Will not go from my mind; » I have much ? 10 ds,
* But to go hang my head all at one side,
And sing it like poor Barbara. Pr’ythee dispatch,

Æmil, Shall I go fetch your night-gown??

Def. No unpin me here.
This Lodovico is a proper man.

Æmil. A very handsome man,
Def. He caks well.

Der. I have heard it said fo. Oh these men, these men ! Dost thou in conscience think, tell me, Æmilia,

,
Ihat there be women do abuse their husbands
In such gross kind?

Æmil. There be fome fuih, no question.
Def. Wouldst thou do such a p deed for all the world?
Æmil. Why would not you?
Def. No, by this heavenly light.

Æmil. 4 Nor 1 neither, by this heavenly light: * I might do 't as well i'th' dark.

Def. 'Wouldst thou do such a ' thing for all the world?

Æmil. The world is a huge thing; it is a great price, for a small vice.

Def. - In troth, I think thou wouldst not.

Æmil. w In troth, I think, I should; and * undo't when I had done. Marry, I would not do such a thing for a joint ring, 2 nor for measures of lawn, nor for gowns, ` petticoats, nor caps; nor any petty exhibition. But for call the whole world; d why, who would not make her husband a cuckold, to make him a monarch? I should venture purgatory for it.

woman,

Def. Beshrew me, if I would do such e a wrong for the whole world.

Æmil. Why the wrong is but a wrong i th' world; and having the world for your labour, 'tis a wrong

in

your own world, and you might quickly make it right. Def. I do not think, there is

any

such Æmil. Yes, a dozen; and as many to the 'vantage as would store the world they play'd for,

But I do think it is their husbands faults
If wives do fall. Say, that they slack their duties,
And pour out treasures into foreign laps;
Or else break out in peevith jealousies,
Throwing restraint & upon us; or say, they strike us;
Or fcant our former Having in despight;
Why, we have galls; and, though we have some grace,
Yet have we some revenge. Let husbands know,
Their wives have sense like them; they see and smell,
And have their palates both for sweet and four,
As husbands have. What is it that they do,
When they change us for others ? Is it sport?
I think it is; and doth affection breed it?
I think it doth; is 't frailty that thus errs?
It is so too. And have not we affections ?
Desires for i sport? and frailty, as men have ?
