hath appointed me to go to Saint Luke's, to bid the priest be ready to come against you come with your appendix.
[Exit. Luc. I may, and will, if she be so contented. She will be pleased, then wherefore should I doubt? Hap what hap may, I'll roundly go about her. It shall go hard, if Cambio go without her. [Exit.
SCENE V. A public Road. Enter PETRUCHIO, KATHARINA, and HORTENSIO. Pet. Come on, o' God's name; once more toward our
Kath. The moon! the sun; it is not moonlight now.
Pet. Now, by my mother's son, and that's myself,
Hor. Say as he says, or we shall never go.
Kath. Forward, I pray, since we have come so far,
Pet. I say it is the moon.
I know it is the moon.
Kath. Then, God be bless'd, it is the blessed sun.-
Hor. Petruchio, go thy ways; the field is won.
Pet. Well, forward, forward; thus the bowl should run, And not unluckily against the bias.But soft; what company is coming here?
Enter VINCENTIO, in a travelling dress. Good-morrow, gentle mistress. Where away
[*VINCENTIO. Tell me, sweet Kate, and tell me truly too, Hast thou beheld a fresher gentlewoman?
Such war of white and red within her cheeks?
Hor. ’A will make the man mad, to make a woman of him.
Kath. Young, budding virgin, fair, and fresh, and sweet, Whither away; or where is thy abode ? Happy the parents of so fair a child ! Happier the man whom favorable stars Allot thee for his lovely bed-fellow!
Pet. Why, how now, Kate! I hope thou art not mad;
Kath. Pardon, old father, my mistaking eyes,
Pet. Do, good old grandsire; and withal make known
Vin. Fair sir,- and you, my merry mistress,
Pet. What is his name?
Lucentio, gentle sir.
Vin. But is this true ? Or is it else your pleasure,
Hor. I do assure thee, father, so it is.
Pet. Come, go along, and see the truth hereof;
[Ereunt PET., KATH., and VIN.
SCENE I. Padua. Before Lucentio's House.
Enter on one side BIONDELLO, LUCENTIO, and BIANCA;
GREMIO walking on the other side.
Luc. I fly, Biondello; but they may chance to need thee at home; therefore leave us.
Bion. Nay, faith, I'll see the church o'your back; and then come back to my master as soon as I can.
[Ereunt Luc., Bian. and Bion. Gre. I marvel Cambio comes not all this while. Enter PETRUCHIO, KATHARINA, VINCENTIO, and Attendants.
Pet. Sir, here's the door; this is Lucentio's house;
Vin. You shall not choose, but drink before you go;
Enter Pedant above, at a window.
Vin. Is seignior Lucentio within, sir ?
Vin. What if a man bring him a hundred pound or two, to make merry withal ?
Ped. Keep your hundred pounds to yourself; he shall need none, so long as I live.
Pet. Nay, I told you your son was beloved in Padua.— Do you hear, sir?—To leave frivolous circumstances, -I pray you, tell seignior Lucentio, that his father is come from Pisa, and is here at the door to speak with him.
Ped. Thou liest. His father is come from Pisa, and here looking out at the window.
Vin. Art thou his father?
Pet. Why, how now, gentleman! [Tc VINCENT.] Why this is flat knavery, to take upon you another man's name.
Ped. Lay hands on the villain; I believe 'a means to cozen somebody in this city under my countenance.
Re-enter BIONDELLO. Bion. I have seen them in the church together. God send 'em good shipping !-But who is here ? my old master, Vincentio ? Now we are undone, and brought to nothing.
Vin. Come hither, crack-hemp. [Seeing BIONDELLO. Bion. I hope I may choose, sir.
l'in. Come hither, you rogue. What, have you forgot ine?
Bion. Forgot you? no, sir. I could not forget you, for I never saw you before in all my life.
Vin. What, you notorious villain, did'st thou never see thy master's father, Vincentio ?
Bion. What, my old, worshipful old master? Yes, marry, sir; sec where he looks out of the window. Vin. Is't so indeed ?
[Beats BIONDELLO. Bion. Help, help, help! here's a madman will murder me.
[Exit. Ped. Help, son, help, seignior Baptista !
[Erit, from the window. Pet. Pr’ythee, Kate, let's stand aside, and see the end of this controversy.
[They retire. Re-enter Pedant, below ; BAPTISTA, TRANIO, and Servants.
Tra. Sir, what are you that offer to beat my servant ?
Vin. What am I, sir ? Nay, what are you, sir ? 0 immortal gods! O fine villain ! A silken doublet! a velvet hose! a scarlet cloak! and a copatain hat!-O, I am undone! I am undone! While I play the good husband at home, my son and my servant spend all at the university.
Tra. How now! what's the matter?
Tru. Sir, you seem a sober, ancient gentleman by your habit, but your words show you a madman. Why, sir, what concerns it you, if I wear pearl and gold ? I thank my good father, I am able to maintain it.
Vin. Thy father? O villain ! He is a sail-maker in Bergamu.
Bap. You mistake, sir; you mistake, sir. Pray, what do you think is his name?
Vin. Ilis name? as if I knew not his name; I have brought him up ever since he was three years old, and his name is — Tranio.
Ped. Away, away, mad ass! His name is Lucentio; and he is mine only son, and heir to the lands of me, seignior Vincentio.
Vin. Lucentio ! O, he hath murdered his master! Lay hold on him, I charge you in the duke's name. — 0, my son, my son! - Tell me, thou villain, where is my son Lucentio ?
Tra. Call forth an officer. [Enter one with an Officer.] Carry this mad knave to the jail. Father Baptista, I charge you see that he be forthcoming.
Vin. Carry me to the jail!
Bap. Talk not, seignior Gremio. I say, he shall go to prison.
Gre. Take heed, seignior Baptista, lest you be conycatched in this business: I dare swear, this is the right Vincentio.
Ped. Swear, if thou darest.
Vin. Thus strangers may be haled and abused.—0 monstrous villain !
Re-enter BIONDELLO, with LUCENTIO and BIANCA. Bion. O, we are spoiled, and—Yonder he is; deny him, forswear him, or else we are all undone. Luc. Pardon, sweet father.
Lives my sweet son ? [BIONDELLO, TRANIO, and Pedant run out. Bian. Pardon, dear father.
How hast thou offended ?
Gre. Ilere's packing, with a witness, to deceive us all !
Vin. Where is that damned villain, Tranio, That faced and braved me in this matter so?
