Match Me in London – Act Five, Scene Four

Return to previous scene

Enter  CORDOLENTE.

CORDOLENTE
Dost thou tell me of thy proclamations that I am banish’d from the court; that court where I came to thee was none of thine; it belongs to a king that keeps open court; one that never wrong’d a beggar, never took way any man’s wife unless he sent his pursuant death for her.  Oh, thou daring sacrilegious royal thief!  Wilt thou rob the church too as thou has me, thrust me out of that house too in the sanctuary; turn’d devil in a crowd of angels.

Enter GAZETTO.

GAZETTO
Why didst not kill her?

CORDOLENTE
I had no power to kill her;
Charms of divinity pull’d back mine arm.
She had armour of proof on, reverence of the place,
She is not married, is she?  Shorten my pains.

GAZETTO
Heaven came itself down and forbade the banns.

Enter IAGO.

IAGO
You must both to th’king.

GAZETTO
Must!  We are for him.

CORDOLENTE
Now do I look for a fig.

GAZETTO
Chew none, fear nothing.                                                                [Exeunt.

Proceed to the next scene
