1

IV,1,1910

Good captain, let me be the interpreter.

2

IV,1,1912

No, sir, I warrant you.

3

IV,1,1914

E'en such as you speak to me.

4

IV,1,1969

Boskos thromuldo boskos.

5

IV,1,1975

Boskos vauvado: I understand thee, and can speak
thy tongue. Kerely bonto, sir, betake thee to thy
faith, for seventeen poniards are at thy bosom.

6

IV,1,1979

O, pray, pray, pray! Manka revania dulche.

7

IV,1,1981

The general is content to spare thee yet;
And, hoodwink'd as thou art, will lead thee on
To gather from thee: haply thou mayst inform
Something to save thy life.

8

IV,1,1989

But wilt thou faithfully?

9

IV,1,1991

Acordo linta.
Come on; thou art granted space.

10

IV,3,2209

He calls for the tortures: what will you say
without 'em?

11

IV,3,2213

Bosko chimurcho.

12

IV,3,2215

You are a merciful general. Our general bids you
answer to what I shall ask you out of a note.

13

IV,3,2218

[Reads] 'First demand of him how many horse the
duke is strong.' What say you to that?

14

IV,3,2224

Shall I set down your answer so?

15

IV,3,2235

Well, that's set down.

16

IV,3,2242

Well, that's set down.

17

IV,3,2245

[Reads] 'Demand of him, of what strength they are
a-foot.' What say you to that?

18

IV,3,2260

Well, that's set down.
[Reads]
'You shall demand of him, whether one Captain Dumain
be i' the camp, a Frenchman; what his reputation is
with the duke; what his valour, honesty, and
expertness in wars; or whether he thinks it were not
possible, with well-weighing sums of gold, to
corrupt him to revolt.' What say you to this? what
do you know of it?

19

IV,3,2271

Do you know this Captain Dumain?

20

IV,3,2278

Well, is this captain in the duke of Florence's camp?

21

IV,3,2282

What is his reputation with the duke?

22

IV,3,2286

Marry, we'll search.

23

IV,3,2290

Here 'tis; here's a paper: shall I read it to you?

24

IV,3,2294

[Reads] 'Dian, the count's a fool, and full of gold,'—

25

IV,3,2300

Nay, I'll read it first, by your favour.

26

IV,3,2306

[Reads] 'When he swears oaths, bid him drop gold, and take it;
After he scores, he never pays the score:
Half won is match well made; match, and well make it;
He ne'er pays after-debts, take it before;
And say a soldier, Dian, told thee this,
Men are to mell with, boys are not to kiss:
For count of this, the count's a fool, I know it,
Who pays before, but not when he does owe it.
Thine, as he vowed to thee in thine ear,
PAROLLES.'

27

IV,3,2322

I perceive, sir, by the general's looks, we shall be
fain to hang you.

28

IV,3,2328

We'll see what may be done, so you confess freely;
therefore, once more to this Captain Dumain: you
have answered to his reputation with the duke and to
his valour: what is his honesty?

29

IV,3,2347

What say you to his expertness in war?

30

IV,3,2358

His qualities being at this poor price, I need not
to ask you if gold will corrupt him to revolt.

31

IV,3,2364

What's his brother, the other Captain Dumain?

32

IV,3,2366

What's he?

33

IV,3,2373

If your life be saved, will you undertake to betray
the Florentine?

34

IV,3,2376

I'll whisper with the general, and know his pleasure.

35

IV,3,2382

There is no remedy, sir, but you must die: the
general says, you that have so traitorously
discovered the secrets of your army and made such
pestiferous reports of men very nobly held, can
serve the world for no honest use; therefore you
must die. Come, headsman, off with his head.

36

IV,3,2402

You are undone, captain, all but your scarf; that
has a knot on't yet

37

IV,3,2405

If you could find out a country where but women were
that had received so much shame, you might begin an
impudent nation. Fare ye well, sir; I am for France
too: we shall speak of you there.
