(stage directions). [Enter a Second Servant]

Second Servant. May it please your honour, Lord Lucius,
Out of his free love, hath presented to you

III,4,1238

First Servant. How! what does his cashiered worship mutter?

Second Servant. No matter what; he's poor, and that's revenge

IV,2,1616

First Servant. Such a house broke!
So noble a master fall'n! All gone! and not
One friend to take his fortune by the arm,
And go along with him!

Second Servant. As we do turn our backs
From our companion thrown into his grave,
So his familiars to his buried fortunes
Slink all away, leave their false vows with him,
Like empty purses pick'd; and his poor self,
A dedicated beggar to the air,
With his disease of all-shunn'd poverty,
Walks, like contempt, alone. More of our fellows.
