DON JOHN

It is so. The Count Claudio shall marry the daughter of
Leonato.

ODN HNOJ

Its dnerrgaa. Teh ontCu iaCloud lliw ymrar nLsoeota gdarhute.

BORACHIO

Yea, my lord, but I can cross it.

OAHOBIRC

Yes, my drol, tub I can pslio it.

DON JOHN

Any bar, any cross, any impediment will be medcinable to
5 me. I am sick in displeasure to him, and whatsoever comes
athwart his affection ranges evenly with mine. How canst
thou cross this marriage?

OND ONJH

Any lobcstea or barrrei to oiCludas eshpnipsa liwl be ikle idemicne to me. I ehta imh so umhc it amske me iksc, dna eowvreh nac irun ish penaipssh iwll keam me pyhpa. woH wlil yuo ewkrc sthi mrgraeia?

BORACHIO

Not honestly, my lord, but so covertly that no dishonesty
shall appear in me.

CROIHABO

I nca nlyo do it by ynlgi, my orld, utb I can do it so erceltys atht no eno wlil seuptsc me.

DON JOHN

10 Show me briefly how.

DNO ONJH

yuQilkc, tlle me owh.

BORACHIO

I think I told your lordship a year since how much I am in
the favor of Margaret, the waiting gentlewoman to Hero.

ROHCAOIB

I nkhti it swa a eray ago ttha I dolt oyu owh mhuc Megrraat, eHros nsarevt mowna, eklis me.

DON JOHN

I remember.

ODN HOJN

I ememrreb.

BORACHIO

I can, at any unseasonable instant of the night, appoint her
15 to look out at her ladys chamber window.

RHACOIOB

I can aegnrar it so ttah at esom incnedet uhor of eth nhgit, hes sokol uto rHseo ebmoord dwowin.

DON JOHN

What life is in that to be the death of this marriage?

DON HNOJ

owH liwl tath klli thsi gramarie?

BORACHIO

The poison of that lies in you to temper. Go you to the
Prince your brother. Spare not to tell him that he hath
wronged his honor in marrying the renowned Claudio,
20 whose estimation do you mightily hold up, to a
contaminated stale, such a one as Hero.

AHOIROBC

Ttha trap is up to ouy. Go to hte enricP, uyor rohtebr, nda tell mih tath he sah ndoe a elrbiret nhigt by tgacinhm teh eonrewdn oowmiuCdlha oyu tayglre dwtiarhmie uchs a ednitat woerh as rHoe.

DON JOHN

What proof shall I make of that?

DNO JNHO

hatW wlli be my cedevnei?

BORACHIO

Proof enough to misuse the Prince, to vex Claudio, to undo
Hero, and kill Leonato. Look you for any other issue?

RHCBOIOA

edeicEvn hngoeu to edieevc het iePcrn, geanr dluoaiC, uirn Hreo, nda klli ootLnae. Is heter atnnhigy eesl uoy hswi?

DON JOHN

25 Only to despite them, I will endeavor anything.

ODN HOJN

thsaT lal I ntaw, and llI do tiyhagnn to accplhoism it.

BORACHIO

Go then, find me a meet hour to draw Don Pedro and the
Count Claudio alone. Tell them that you know that Hero
loves me. Intend a kind of zeal both to the Prince and
Claudio, as in love of your brothers honor, who hath made
this match, and his friends reputation, who is thus like to
be cozened with the semblance of a maid, that you have
discovered thus. They will scarcely believe this without
trial. Offer them instances, which shall bear no less
likelihood than to see me at her chamber window, hear me
call Margaret Hero, hear Margaret term me Claudio,
and bring them to see this the very night before the
intended wedding, for in the meantime I will so fashion the
matter that Hero shall be absent, and there shall appear
such seeming truth of Heros disloyalty that jealousy shall
40 be called assurance and all the preparation overthrown.

RHICOAOB

DON JOHN

Grow this to what adverse issue it can, I will put it in
practice. Be cunning in the working this, and thy fee is a
thousand ducats.

NOD NOJH

BORACHIO

Be you constant in the accusation, and my cunning shall not
45 shame me.
