Scene 1.VI.

Cyrano, Le Bret, the duenna.

THE DUENNA (with a low bow):
I was bid ask you where a certain lady
Could see her valiant cousin--but in secret.

CYRANO (overwhelmed):
See me?

THE DUENNA (courtesying):
Ay, Sir! She has somewhat to tell.

CYRANO:
Somewhat?. . .

THE DUENNA (still courtesying):
Ay, private matters!

CYRANO (staggering):
Ah, my God!

THE DUENNA:
To-morrow, at the early blush of dawn,
We go to hear mass at St. Roch.

CYRANO (leaning against Le Bret):
My God!

THE DUENNA:
After--what place for a few minutes' speech?

CYRANO (confused):
Where? Ah!. . .but. . .Ah, my God!. . .

THE DUENNA:
Say!

CYRANO:
I reflect!. . .

THE DUENNA:
Where?

CYRANO:
At--the pastry-house of Ragueneau.

THE DUENNA:
Where lodges he?

CYRANO:
The Rue--God!--St. Honore!

THE DUENNA (going):
Good. Be you there. At seven.

CYRANO:
Without fail.

(The duenna goes out.)
