Antony and Cleopatra


ACT II SCENE IV The same. A street
LEPIDUS Trouble yourselves no further: pray you, hasten
Your generals after.
AGRIPPA Sir, Mark Antony
Will e’en but kiss Octavia, and we’ll follow.
LEPIDUS Till I shall see you in your soldier’s dress, 5
Which will become you both, farewell.
MECAENAS We shall,
As I conceive the journey, be at the Mount
Before you, Lepidus.
LEPIDUS Your way is shorter; 10
My purposes do draw me much about:
You’ll win two days upon me.
AGRIPPA Sir, good success!
LEPIDUS Farewell.
