ACT IV.

SCENE I. - AURELIUS' CAMP.

Enter AURELIUS, UTER, PASCENTIUS, and FLAVIA.

Aur. You, then, escaped, disguis'd in man's attire ?

Fla. 'Tis true, I did; but ne'er hath rapier yet
Adorn'd a side less fitting to support it.

Aur. To you, Pascentius, my best thanks are due.
Pas. Nay, nay; 'tis little that to me you owe.

Fla. Indeed, but for his aid, I long, ere this
Had broke my sacred vow, and wedded death.

Uter. Brother, the enemy is near at hand;
Straight let us forth, and range our troops for battle.

Aur. Go you before, and swift I'll follow.
Now to thy care, my dearest friend, I trust
Thy beauteous sister, and my sweetest love.
Should victory proclaim the day our own,
All will be well; but should the loss be ours,
To heav'n'sjust guard I must resign you both.
Two trusty servants have I plac'd without,
Who will conduct you westward of our camp:
If we be beaten, thither we'll retreat.
Haste! fare thee well, sweet love.

Fla. This token let me brace around thine arm,
Think of me in the field, nor let revenge
Blot from thy gen'rous breast all sense of pity.

Aur. 0 ! cruel fortune, so soon to wrench from me
This lovely form; to steal thy beauteous hand,
And offer to my grasp this weighty steel. [Exeunt.
