Enter PYRGOPOLINICES from his house.
What I wished I have obtained just as I wished, on kind and friendly terms, that she would leave me. PALAESTRIO
For what reason am I to say that you have been so long in-doors? PYRGOPOLINICES
I never was so sensible that I was beloved by that woman as now. PALAESTRIO
Why so? PYRGOPOLINICES
How many words she did utter! How the matter was protracted! But in the end I obtained what I wanted, and I granted her what she wanted and what she asked of me. I made a present of you also to her. PALAESTRIO
What--me, too? In what way shall I exist without you? PYRGOPOLINICES
Come, be of good heart; I'll make you free from exit, too. But I used all endeavours, if I could by any method persuade her to go away, and not take you with her, she forced me, however. PALAESTRIO
In the Gods and yourself I'll place my trust. Yet, at the last, although it is bitter to me that I must be deprived of an excellent master, yourself, at least it is a pleasure to me that, through my means, by reason of the excellence of your beauty, this has happened to you with regard to this lady neighbour, whom I am now introducing to you. PYRGOPOLINICES
What need of words? I'll give you liberty and wealth if you obtain her for me. PALAESTRIO
I'll win her. PYRGOPOLINICES
But I'm impatient. PALAESTRIO
But moderation is requisite; curb your desires; don't be over anxious. But see, here she is herself; she is coming out of doors.
