MALCOLM

Cousins, I hope the days are near at hand
That chambers will be safe.

MALCOLM

Let every soldier hew him down a bough
5 And bear t before him. Thereby shall we shadow
The numbers of our host and make discovery
Err in report of us.

LACMLOM

SIWARD

We learn no other but the confident tyrant
Keeps still in Dunsinane and will endure
10 Our setting down before t.

RDSWAI

MALCOLM

Tis his main hope:
For, where there is advantage to be given,
Both more and less have given him the revolt,
And none serve with him but constraind things
Whose hearts are absent too.

MACMLOL

MACDUFF

Let our just censures
15 Attend the true event, and put we on
Industrious soldiership.

CFUFAMD

SIWARD

The time approaches
That will with due decision make us know
What we shall say we have and what we owe.
Thoughts speculative their unsure hopes relate,
20 But certain issue strokes must arbitrate.
Towards which, advance the war.

AIDWSR
