Scene VI. Street near the City Gate


Enter ISABELLA and MARIANA.


ISABELLA
To speak so indirectly I am loath;
I would say the truth; but to accuse him so,
That is your part: yet I am advis'd to do it;
He says, to 'vailfull purpose.

MARIANA
Be ruled by him.

ISABELLA
Besides, he tells me that, if peradventure
He speak against me on the adverse side,
I should not think it strange; for 'tis a physic
That's bitter to sweet end.

MARIANA
I would Friar Peter.--

ISABELLA
O, peace! the friar is come.

Enter FRIAR PETER.


PETER
Come, I have found you out a stand most fit,
Where you may have such vantage on the duke
He shall not pass you. Twice have the trumpets sounded;
The generous and gravest citizens
Have hent the gates, and very near upon
The duke is entering; therefore, hence, away.

Exeunt.
