SCENE VI

Street near the city gate.
Enter ISABELLA and MARIANA.

Isab.
To speak so indirectly I am loath:

I would say the truth; but to accuse him so,

That is your part: yet I am advised to do it;

He says, to veil full purpose.

Mari.
Be ruled by him.

Isab.
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.

Mari.
I would Friar Peter--

Isab.
O, peace! the friar is come,
Enter FRIAR PETER.
(10)

Fri. P.
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.
