Not illustrated. 1874 edition. Excerpt: ... Alas tis madnes (pardon him) not spleene, Nor is it hate, but frenzie, we are pleafd To heare the Gods propitious to our prayers. But whither's Sextus gone? refolve us Codes, We faw thee in his parting follow him. Hora. I heard him fay, he would straight take his horfe And to the warlike Gabines enemies To Rome, and you. Tar. Save them we have no opposites. Dares the proud boy confederate with our foes 1 Attend us Lords, we must new battle wage, And with bright armes confront the proud boyes rage. Exeunt. Manet Lucretius, Collatine, Horatius, Valerius, Seevola. V Hor. Had I as many foules as drops of blood In thefe brancht vaines, as many lives as starres--1 Stuck in yond' azure Rofe, and were to die More deaths then I have wasted weary minutes, I To grow to this, ide hazard all and more, To purchafe freedome to this bondag'd Rome. I'me vext to fee this virgin conquereffe Weare shackles in my sight. Luc. Oh would my teares Would rid great Rome of thefe prodigious feares. Enter Brutus. Bru.

Say what shal's more
