(stage directions). [Enter SERVILIUS]

Servilius. See, by good hap, yonder's my lord;
I have sweat to see his honour. My honoured lord,—

III,2,1041

Lucilius. Servilius! you are kindly met, sir. Fare thee well:
commend me to thy honourable virtuous lord, my very
exquisite friend.

Servilius. May it please your honour, my lord hath sent—


3

III,2,1045

Lucilius. Ha! what has he sent? I am so much endeared to
that lord; he's ever sending: how shall I thank
him, thinkest thou? And what has he sent now?

Servilius. Has only sent his present occasion now, my lord;
requesting your lordship to supply his instant use
with so many talents.


4

III,2,1050

Lucilius. I know his lordship is but merry with me;
He cannot want fifty five hundred talents.

Servilius. But in the mean time he wants less, my lord.
If his occasion were not virtuous,
I should not urge it half so faithfully.

III,2,1054

Lucilius. Dost thou speak seriously, Servilius?

Servilius. Upon my soul,'tis true, sir.

III,2,1071

Lucilius. What a wicked beast was I to disfurnish myself
against such a good time, when I might ha' shown
myself honourable! how unluckily it happened, that I
should purchase the day before for a little part,
and undo a great deal of honoured! Servilius, now,
before the gods, I am not able to do,—the more
beast, I say:—I was sending to use Lord Timon
myself, these gentlemen can witness! but I would
not, for the wealth of Athens, I had done't now.
Commend me bountifully to his good lordship; and I
hope his honour will conceive the fairest of me,
because I have no power to be kind: and tell him
this from me, I count it one of my greatest
afflictions, say, that I cannot pleasure such an
honourable gentleman. Good Servilius, will you
befriend me so far, as to use mine own words to him?

Servilius. Yes, sir, I shall.

III,4,1244

Titus. O, here's Servilius; now we shall know some answer.

Servilius. If I might beseech you, gentlemen, to repair some
other hour, I should derive much from't; for,
take't of my soul, my lord leans wondrously to
discontent: his comfortable temper has forsook him;
he's much out of health, and keeps his chamber.
And, if it be so far beyond his health,
Methinks he should the sooner pay his debts,
And make a clear way to the gods.

III,4,1253

Servilius. If I might beseech you, gentlemen, to repair some
other hour, I should derive much from't; for,
take't of my soul, my lord leans wondrously to
discontent: his comfortable temper has forsook him;
he's much out of health, and keeps his chamber.
And, if it be so far beyond his health,
Methinks he should the sooner pay his debts,
And make a clear way to the gods.

Servilius. Good gods!
