III,2,1447

Helena. Madam, my lord is gone, for ever gone.

Second Gentleman. Do not say so.


2

III,2,1452

Countess. Think upon patience. Pray you, gentlemen,
I have felt so many quirks of joy and grief,
That the first face of neither, on the start,
Can woman me unto't: where is my son, I pray you?

Second Gentleman. Madam, he's gone to serve the duke of Florence:
We met him thitherward; for thence we came,
And, after some dispatch in hand at court,
Thither we bend again.


3

III,2,1471

Countess. I prithee, lady, have a better cheer;
If thou engrossest all the griefs are thine,
Thou robb'st me of a moiety: he was my son;
But I do wash his name out of my blood,
And thou art all my child. Towards Florence is he?

Second Gentleman. Ay, madam.


4

III,2,1473

Countess. And to be a soldier?

Second Gentleman. Such is his noble purpose; and believe 't,
The duke will lay upon him all the honour
That good convenience claims.


5

III,2,1504

Countess. You're welcome, gentlemen.
I will entreat you, when you see my son,
To tell him that his sword can never win
The honour that he loses: more I'll entreat you
Written to bear along.

Second Gentleman. We serve you, madam,
In that and all your worthiest affairs.
