'Well, well, dear Collatine, thou shalt not know (1059)

The stained taste of violated troth; (1060)

I will not wrong thy true affection so, (1061)

To flatter thee with an infringed oath; (1062)

This bastard graff shall never come to growth:
He shall not boast who did thy stock pollute (1064)

That thou art doting father of his fruit.
