Mytilene. A street before the brothel.
Enter, from the brothel, two Gentlemen.

First Gent.
Did you ever hear the like?

Sec. Gent.
No, nor never shall do in such
a place as this, she being once gone.

First Gent.
But to have divinity preached
there! did you ever dream of such a thing?

Sec. Gent.
No, no. Come, I am for no
more bawdy-houses: shall's go hear the
vestals sing?

First Gent.
I'll do any thing now that is
virtuous; but I am out of the road of rutting
for ever. [Exeunt.
