Hang me by the neck, if horns that year miscarry....

And quite divorce his memory from his part.

48

V,2,2042

The trumpet sounds: be mask'd; the maskers come.
[The Ladies mask]...

49

V,2,2048

Beauties no richer than rich taffeta.

50

V,2,2054

V,2,2204

Dismask'd, their damask sweet commixture shown,...

63

V,2,2222

Ladies, withdraw: the gallants are at hand.

64

V,2,2228

Command me any service to her thither?
