Excerpt: ... love me, And hold ye constant, when I have read this story? Is't possible you should ever favour me, To a slight pleasure prove a friend, and fast too, When, where you were most ty'd, most bound to benefit, Bound by the chains of honesty and honour, You have broke and boldly too? I am a weak one, Arm'd only with my fears: I beseech your Grace Tempt me no further. Du. Who taught you this Lesson? Alin. Woful experience, Sir: if you seek a fair one, Worthy your love, if yet you have that perfect, Two Daughters of his ruin'd vertue now Arrive at Court, excellent fair indeed, Sir, But this will be the Plague on't, they're excellent honest.

By'r Lady but ye may: when ye have found me able To do your work well, ye may pay my wages. Pet. Why does your Grace start back? Olym. I ha' seen that shakes me: Chills all my bloud: O where is faith or goodness? Alinda thou art false, false, false thou fair one, Wickedness false; and (wo is me) I see it. For ever false. Pet. I am glad 't has taken thus right. Exeunt. Alin. I'le go ask my Lady, Sir. Du. What? Alin. Whether I shall lye with ye, or no: If I find her willingshow more
