For I had rather wink than look on them.

Neither.

EUOPSTR

DUKE

Why then,
Shes fled unto that peasant Valentine,
And Eglamour is in her company.
40 Tis true, for Friar Lawrence met them both
As he in penance wandered through the forest.
Him he knew well, and guessed that it was she,
But, being masked, he was not sure of it.
Besides, she did intend confession
45 At Patricks cell this even, and there she was not.
These likelihoods confirm her flight from hence.
Therefore, I pray you, stand not to discourse,
But mount you presently, and meet with me
Upon the rising of the mountain foot
50 That leads toward Mantua, whither they are fled.
Dispatch, sweet gentlemen, and follow me.
