MENTEITH

The English power is near, led on by Malcolm,
His uncle Siward and the good Macduff.
Revenges burn in them, for their dear causes
Would to the bleeding and the grim alarm
5 Excite the mortified man.

LENNOX

For certain, sir, he is not. I have a file
Of all the gentry. There is Siwards son,
10 And many unrough youths that even now
Protest their first of manhood.

CAITHNESS

Great Dunsinane he strongly fortifies.
Some say hes mad, others that lesser hate him
Do call it valiant fury. But, for certain,
15 He cannot buckle his distempered cause
Within the belt of rule.

ANGUS

Now does he feel
His secret murders sticking on his hands.
Now minutely revolts upbraid his faith-breach.
Those he commands move only in command,
20 Nothing in love. Now does he feel his title
Hang loose about him, like a giants robe
Upon a dwarfish thief.

To give obedience where tis truly owed.

And with him pour we in our countrys purge
Each drop of us.
