Antony and Cleopatra
|ACT IV SCENE V||Alexandria. Mark Antony’s camp.|
|[ Trumpets sound. Enter MARK ANTONY and EROS; a Soldier meeting them ]|
|Soldier||The gods make this a happy day to Antony!|
|MARK ANTONY||Would thou and those thy scars had once prevail’d|
|To make me fight at land!|
|Soldier||Hadst thou done so,|
|The kings that have revolted, and the soldier||5|
|That has this morning left thee, would have still|
|Follow’d thy heels.|
|MARK ANTONY||Who’s gone this morning?|
|One ever near thee: call for Enobarbus,||10|
|He shall not hear thee; or from Caesar’s camp|
|Say ‘I am none of thine.’|
|MARK ANTONY||What say’st thou?|
|He is with Caesar.||15|
|EROS||Sir, his chests and treasure|
|He has not with him.|
|MARK ANTONY||Is he gone?|
|MARK ANTONY||Go, Eros, send his treasure after; do it;||20|
|Detain no jot, I charge thee: write to him–|
|I will subscribe–gentle adieus and greetings;|
|Say that I wish he never find more cause|
|To change a master. O, my fortunes have|
|Corrupted honest men! Dispatch.–Enobarbus!||25|
