Not illustrated. 1808 edition. Excerpt: ...done't: Their hands and faces were all badg'd with blood, So were their daggers, which, unwip'd, we found Upon their pillows; they star'd, and were distracted; No man's life was to be trusted with them. Exeunt Malcolm and Donalbain. Mncb. O, yet I do repent me of my fury, That I did kill them. Macd. Wherefore did you so? Macb. Who can be wise, amaz'd, temperate, and furious, Loyal and neutral, in a moment? No man: The expedition of my violent love Out-ran the pauser reason.--Here lay Duncan, His silver skin lac'd with his golden blood;And his gash'd stabs look'd like a breach in nature, For ruin's wasteful entrance: there the murderers, Steep'd in the colours of their trade, their daggers Unmannerly breech'd with gore: Who could refrain, That had a heart to love, and in that heart Courage, to make his love known? Ban. Fears and scruples shake us: In the great hand of Heaven I stand; and, thence, Against the undivulg'd pretence I fight Of treasonous malice. Macb. And so do I. All. So all. Macd. Let's briefly put on manly readiness, And meet meet i' the hall together; And question this most bloody piece of work, To know it further. All. Well contented. Exeunt. SCENEII. A Wood on the Skirt of a Heat ft. Thunder and Lightning. Enter the Three Witches, and a Chorus of Witches. 1 Witch. Speak, sister, speak, --is the deed done? 2 Witch. Long ago, long ago; Above twelve glasses since have run. 3 Witch. Ill deeds are seldom slow, Nor single; following crimes on former wait; The worst of creatures fastest propagate. Chor. Many more murders must this one ensue; Dread horrors still abound, And every place surround, As if in death were found Propagation too. 1 Witch. He must, --2 Witch. He shall--3 Witch, lie will spill much more blood, And become worse, toshow more
