Upon the sobbing deer.

We did, my lord, weeping and carrying on about the sobbing deer.

DUKE SENIOR

Show me the place.
70I love to cope him in these sullen fits,
For then he’s full of matter.

DUKE SENIOR

Take me to him. I love to argue with him when he’s having one of these fits, because then he always has a lot to say.

FIRST LORD

I’ll bring you to him straight.

FIRST LORD

I’ll bring you to him right away.
Exeunt
They all exit.
