DOGBERRY

Goodman Verges, sir, speaks a little off the matter. An old
man, sir, and his wits are not so blunt as, God help, I would
10 desire they were, but, in faith, honest as the skin between
his brows.

DOGBERRY

It pleases your Worship to say so, but we are the poor dukes
officers. But truly, for mine own part, if I were as tedious as
a king, I could find it in my heart to bestow it all of your
worship.

A good old man, sir. He will be talking. As they say, When
the age is in, the wit is out. God help us, it is a world to see!
Well said, i faith, neighbor Verges.Well, Gods a good
man. An two men ride of a horse, one must ride behind. An
honest soul, i faith, sir, by my troth he is, as ever broke
bread, but God is to be worshipped, all men are not alike,
