SECOND SERVANT

Let’s follow the old earl, and get the Bedlam
110To lead him where he would. His roguish madness
Allows itself to any thing.

SECOND SERVANT

Let’s follow the old earl, and get that crazy Tom to take him wherever he wants to go. As a wandering lunatic, he can do whatever he wants.

THIRD SERVANT

Go thou. I’ll fetch some flax and whites of eggs
To apply to his bleeding face. Now heaven help him!

THIRD SERVANT

Go ahead. I’ll get some cloth and egg whites to bandage his bleeding face. Heaven help him!
Exeunt severally
They exit in different directions.
