1

I,2,227

Fair Princess, you have lost much good sport.

2

I,2,229

What colour, madam? How shall I answer you?

3

I,2,235

You amaze me, ladies. I would have told you of good
wrestling, which you have lost the sight of.

4

I,2,238

I will tell you the beginning, and, if it please your
ladyships, you may see the end; for the best is yet to do; and
here, where you are, they are coming to perform it.

5

I,2,242

There comes an old man and his three sons-

6

I,2,244

Three proper young men, of excellent growth and presence.

7

I,2,247

The eldest of the three wrestled with Charles, the Duke's
wrestler; which Charles in a moment threw him, and broke three of
his ribs, that there is little hope of life in him. So he serv'd
the second, and so the third. Yonder they lie; the poor old man,
their father, making such pitiful dole over them that all the
beholders take his part with weeping.

8

I,2,256

Why, this that I speak of.

9

I,2,263

You must, if you stay here; for here is the place
appointed for the wrestling, and they are ready to perform it.

10

I,2,271

Even he, madam.

11

I,2,283

Monsieur the Challenger, the Princess calls for you.

12

I,2,329

He cannot speak, my lord.

13

I,2,377

Good sir, I do in friendship counsel you
To leave this place. Albeit you have deserv'd
High commendation, true applause, and love,
Yet such is now the Duke's condition
That he misconstrues all that you have done.
The Duke is humorous; what he is, indeed,
More suits you to conceive than I to speak of.

14

I,2,387

Neither his daughter, if we judge by manners;
But yet, indeed, the smaller is his daughter;
The other is daughter to the banish'd Duke,
And here detain'd by her usurping uncle,
To keep his daughter company; whose loves
Are dearer than the natural bond of sisters.
But I can tell you that of late this Duke
Hath ta'en displeasure 'gainst his gentle niece,
Grounded upon no other argument
But that the people praise her for her virtues
And pity her for her good father's sake;
And, on my life, his malice 'gainst the lady
Will suddenly break forth. Sir, fare you well.
Hereafter, in a better world than this,
I shall desire more love and knowledge of you.
