For Brutus only overcame himself;
And no-man else hath honour by his death.

Luc. So Brutus should be found, I thank thee, Brutus, That thou haft prov'd Lucilius saying true.

Octa. All that serv'd Brutus, I will entertain them. Fellow, wilt thou bestow thy time with me?

Stra. Ay, if Meffala will prefer me to you.
Osta. Do fo, good Mesala.
Mef. How died my ord, Strato?
Stra. I held the sword, and he did run on it.

Mej. Ostavius, then take him to follow thee,
That did the latest service to my master.

Ant. This was the nobleft Roman of them all:
All the Conspirators, save only he,
Did that they did in envy

of

great Cæfar:
He, only, in a general honest thought,
And common Good to all, made one of them.
His life was gentle, and the elements
So mix'd in him, that nature might stand up,
And say to all the world ; “ This was a Man!

Ofta. According to his virtue, let us use him ;
With all respect, and rites of þurial.
Within my tent his bones to-night shall lie,
Moft like a soldier, order'd honourably.
So call the field to rest ; and let's away,
To part the Glories of this happy day. Exeunt omnesa
