Not illustrated. 1853 edition. Excerpt: ...the instrument of vengeance, Of glorious vengeance on the man I hate. _Ea: it. ACT II. Enter JULIA and EMMELINA. Julia. How many cares perplex the maid who loves! Cares, which the vacant heart can never know. You fondly tremble for a brother's life; Orlando mourns the absence of a friend, Guildford is anxious for a son's renown; In my poor heart your various terrors meet, With added fears and fonder apprehensions: They all unite in me, I feel for all, His life, his fame, his absence, and his love; For he may live to see his native home, And he may live to bless a sister's hopes, May live to gratify impatient friendship, May live to crown a father's house with honour, May live to glory, yet be dead to love. Em. Forbear these fears; they wound my brother's honour: Julia! a brave man must be ever faithful; Cowards alone dare venture to be false; Cowards alone dare injure trusting virtue, And with bold perjuries affront high heaven. Julia. I know his faith, and venerate his virtues; I know his heart is tender as 'tis brave, That all his father's worth, his sister's softness, Meet in his generous breast--and yet I fear--Whoever lov'd like me, and did not fear? Enter GUILDFORD. Guild. Where are my friends, my daughter. where is Julia? How shall I speak the fulness of my heart? My son, my Rivers, will this day return. Em. My dearest brother! Julia. Ha! my Rivers comes! Propitious heaven! Em. And yet my Julia trembles. Julia. Have I not cause? my Rivers comes! but how? I dread to ask, and yet I die to hear. My lord--you know the terms---Guild.-He comes a conqueror! He comes as Guildford's son should ever come! The battle's o'er, the English arms successful, And Rivers, like more
