'Disturb his hours of rest with restless trances, (975)

Afflict him in his bed with bedrid groans; (976)

Let there bechance him pitiful mischances, (977)

To make him moan; but pity not his moans: (978)

Stone him with harden'd hearts, harder than stones;
And let mild women to him lose their mildness, (980)

Wilder to him than tigers in their wildness.
