Pan. A whoreson prisick, a whoreson rascally ptisick so troubles me, and the foolish fortune of this girl, and what one thing and what another, that I shall leave you one o' these days; and I have a rheum in mine eyes too, and such an ach in my bones, that unless a man were curst, I cannot tell what to think on't. What says she there?
[heart. Troi. Words, words, meer words; no matter from the Th' effect doth operate another way. [Tearing the letter. Go wind to wind, there turn and change together : My love with words and errors still she feeds ; But edifies another with her deeds.

I'll go look on: chat disembling abominable Varlet, Diomede, has got that same scurvy, doating, foolish young knave's Neeve of Troy there in his helm : I would fain see them meet ; that, that same young Trojan ass that loves the whore there might send that Greekish whore-masterly villain, with the sleeve, back to the dissembling luxurious drab, of a Neeveless errand. Oth' other side, the policy of those crafty 8'[neering rascals, that ftale old mouse-eaten dry cheese Nestor, and that same dog-fox Ulyljes, is not prov'd worth a blackberry. They set me up in policy that mungril cur Ajax, against that dog of as bad a kind Achilles. And now is the cur Ajax prouder than the cur Achilles, and will not arm today. Whereupon the Grecians begin to proclaim barba. rism, and policy grows into an ill opinion.
Enter Diomede and Troilus.

[Exit. Ther. God-a-mercy, that thou wilt believe me; but a plague break thy neck for frighting me!'What's become of the wenching rogues ? I think they have swallow'd one another. I would laugh at that miracle -- yet in a fort, letchery eats itself: I'll seek them.
[Exit. Enter Diomede and Servant. Dio. Go go, my fervant, take thou Troilus' horse, Present the fair (teed to my Lady Cresid : Fellow, commend my service to her beauty : Tell her, I have chattis'd the amorous Trojan, Ar.dam her knight by proof. Ser. I go, my Lord.

Oh, courage, courage, Princes! great Achilles Is arming, weeping, cursing, vowing vengeance ; Patroclus' wounds have rowz'd his drowsie blood, Together with his mangled N1yrmidons, That noseless, handless, hackt and chipt, come to him, Crying on Hector.
