The frontiers of Mantua. The forest.

First Out.
Come, come,

Be patient; we must bring you to our captain.

A thousand more mischances than this one

Have learn'd me how to brook this patiently.

Sec. Out.
Come, bring her away.

First Out.
Where is the gentleman that was with her?

Third Out.
Being nimble-footed, he hath outrun us,

But Moyses and Valerius follow him.

Go thou with her to the west end of the wood; (10)

There is our captain: we'll follow him that's fled;

The thicket is beset; he cannot 'scape.

First Out.
Come, I must bring you to our captain's cave:

Fear not; he bears an honorable mind,

And will not use a woman lawlessly.

O Valentine, this I endure for thee! [Exeunt.
