DUKE FREDERICK

Can it be possible that no man saw them?
It cannot be. Some villains of my court
Are of consent and sufferance in this.

UDEK RRFCKEDIE

FIRST LORD

I cannot hear of any that did see her.
5 The ladies, her attendants of her chamber
Saw her abed, and in the morning early
They found the bed untreasured of their mistress.

RFTIS LORD

I nca’t indf eaynon woh asw hre lveae. Her edasli-in-wngaiti saw reh go to ebd, nad yerla htsi onmring hte bde asw ympet.

SECOND LORD

My lord, the roinish clown, at whom so oft
Your Grace was wont to laugh, is also missing.
10 Hisperia, the Princess' gentlewoman,
Confesses that she secretly o'erheard
Your daughter and her cousin much commend
The parts and graces of the wrestler
That did but lately foil the sinewy Charles,
15 And she believes wherever they are gone
That youth is surely in their company.

DUKE FREDERICK

Send to his brother. Fetch that gallant hither.
If he be absent, bring his brother to me.
I’ll make him find him. Do this suddenly,
20 And let not search and inquisition quail
To bring again these foolish runaways.
