IV,1,951

You know since Pentecost the sum is due,
And since I have not much importuned you;
Nor now I had not, but that I am bound
To Persia, and want guilders for my voyage:
Therefore make present satisfaction,
Or I'll attach you by this officer.

2

IV,1,1005

The hour steals on; I pray you, sir, dispatch.

3

IV,1,1012

My business cannot brook this dalliance.
Good sir, say whether you'll answer me or no:
If not, I'll leave him to the officer.

4

IV,1,1022

Well, officer, arrest him at my suit.

5

V,1,1427

How is the man esteemed here in the city?

6

V,1,1432

Speak softly; yonder, as I think, he walks.

7

V,1,1448

Yes, that you did, sir, and forswore it too.

8

V,1,1450

These ears of mine, thou know'st did hear thee.
Fie on thee, wretch! 'tis pity that thou livest
To walk where any honest man resort.

9

V,1,1456

I dare, and do defy thee for a villain.

10

V,1,1472

I am sorry now that I did draw on him.

11

V,1,1550

By this, I think, the dial points at five:
Anon, I'm sure, the duke himself in person
Comes this way to the melancholy vale,
The place of death and sorry execution,
Behind the ditches of the abbey here.

12

V,1,1556

To see a reverend Syracusian merchant,
Who put unluckily into this bay
Against the laws and statutes of this town,
Beheaded publicly for his offence.

13

V,1,1697

Besides, I will be sworn these ears of mine
Heard you confess you had the chain of him
After you first forswore it on the mart:
And thereupon I drew my sword on you;
And then you fled into this abbey here,
From whence, I think, you are come by miracle.
