DOCTOR

I have two nights watched with you but can perceive no truth in your report. When was it she last walked?

GENTLEWOMAN

Since his majesty went into the field, I have seen her rise from her bed, throw her nightgown upon her, unlock her closet, take forth paper, fold it, write upon t, read it, afterwards seal it, and again return to bed; yet all this while in a most fast sleep.

NNWLGOAETME

DOCTOR

A great perturbation in nature, to receive at once the benefit of sleep, and do the lineeffects of watching. In this slumbery agitation, besides her walking and other actual performances, what, at any time, have you heard her say?

ROCDTO

GENTLEWOMAN

OLEANEMNTGW

DOCTOR

Foul whisprings are abroad. Unnatural deeds
50 Do breed unnatural troubles. Infected minds
To their deaf pillows will discharge their secrets.
More needs she the divine than the physician.
God, God forgive us all! Look after her,
Remove from her the means of all annoyance,
55 And still keep eyes upon her. So, good night.
My mind she has mated, and amazed my sight.
I think, but dare not speak.
