PARTICIPLES AND VERBALS: Participles expressing a conditionThe Participle is often used to express a condition where, for perspicuity, we should now mostly insert "if."
“Requires to live in Egypt, which not granted,
He lessens his requests.
“That whoso ask'd her for his wife,
His riddle told not, lost his life.
“For I do know Fluellen valiant,
And, touch'd with choler, hot as gunpowder.
"Admitted" is probably a participle in
“Your honour not o'erthrown by your desires,
I am friend to them and you.
i.e. "exactly, if petty things be excepted." The participle is sometimes so separated from the verb that it seems to be used absolutely.
“This is the brief of money, plate and jewels
I am possess'd of: 'tis exactly valued,
Not petty things admitted.
i.e. "since thou comest."
“Resolve me with all modest haste which way
Thou might'st deserve, or they impose this usage,
Coming from us.
"And" is sometimes joined to a participle or adjective thus used. See And, 95.
“But being moody give him line and scope.
But that I seek occasion how to rise,
And yet the king not privy to my drift.
i.e. "the flies also being (295) fled."
“But when the splitting wind
Makes flexible the knees of knotted oaks,
And flies (being) fled under shade.
