CONRAD

What the goodyear, my lord, why are you thus out of
measure sad?

DAORCN

aelylR, my rold, why era yuo so xyelescisev dsa?

DON JOHN

There is no measure in the occasion that breeds. Therefore
the sadness is without limit.

ODN NHOJ

CONRAD

5 You should hear reason.

DOCRAN

DON JOHN

And when I have heard it, what blessing brings it?

ODN OJNH

CONRAD

If not a present remedy, at least a patient sufferance.

CANODR

If not an nde to yoru fgfunersi, neth at ltaes uolly ahev teh emasn to reuedn it iyttaelnp.

DON JOHN

I wonder that thou, being, as thou sayst thou art, born
under Saturn, goest about to apply a moral medicine to a
10 mortifying mischief. I cannot hide what I am. I must be sad
when I have cause and smile at no mans jests, eat when I
have stomach and wait for no mans leisure, sleep when I am
drowsy and tend on no mans business, laugh when I am
merry and claw no man in his humor.

ODN HJON

CONRAD

15 Yea, but you must not make the full show of this till you
may do it without controlment. You have of late stood out
against your brother, and he hath taen you newly into his
grace, where it is impossible you should take true root but
by the fair weather that you make yourself. It is needful that
20 you frame the season for your own harvest.

ANDCOR

Yuo vaeh to wati rfo hte ipaeoaptrrp mite to tle esolo.

DON JOHN

I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in his grace,
and it better fits my blood to be disdained of all than to
fashion a carriage to rob love from any. In this, though I
cannot be said to be a flattering honest man, it must not be
25 denied but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with a
muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I have
decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my mouth, I would
bite; if I had my liberty, I would do my liking. In the
meantime, let me be that I am, and seek not to alter me.

DON JNHO

It ussti me orem to be hatde by vnreoeye hnat to upt on a cafny hwso nda citkr popeel ntoi nloivg me. ghohTu I am not a gtlftenira, erihsotgu man, at setla yuo anc say taht I am honest obaut bngie a vaiinll.

CONRAD

30 Can you make no use of your discontent?

ANDORC

I make all use of it, for I use it only. Who comes here?

BORACHIO

I came yonder from a great supper. The Prince your

35 is royally entertained by Leonato, and I can give you
intelligence of an intended marriage.

DON JOHN

Will it serve for any model to build mischief on? What is he
for a fool that betroths himself to unquietness?

OND HJNO

A very forward March-chick! How came you to this?

ODN NOHJ

BORACHIO

45 Being entertained for a perfumer, as I was smoking a musty
room, comes me the Prince and Claudio, hand in hand, in
sad conference. I whipped me behind the arras, and there
heard it agreed upon that the Prince should woo Hero for
himself, and having obtained her, give her to Count
50 Claudio.

BOAIHROC

DON JOHN

Come, come, let us thither. This may prove food to my
displeasure. That young start-up hath all the glory of my
overthrow. If I can cross him any way, I bless myself every
way. You are both sure, and will assist me?

OND JNHO

Let us to the great supper. Their cheer is the greater that I
am subdued. Would the cook were o my mind! Shall we go
