Antony and Cleopatra


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