1

V,2,3737

Your lordship is right welcome back to Denmark.

2

V,2,3745

Sweet lord, if your lordship were at leisure, I should impart
a thing to you from his Majesty.

3

V,2,3749

I thank your lordship, it is very hot.

4

V,2,3751

It is indifferent cold, my lord, indeed.

5

V,2,3753

Exceedingly, my lord; it is very sultry, as 'twere- I cannot
tell how. But, my lord, his Majesty bade me signify to you that
he has laid a great wager on your head. Sir, this is the matter-

6

V,2,3758

Nay, good my lord; for mine ease, in good faith. Sir, here is
newly come to court Laertes; believe me, an absolute gentleman,
full of most excellent differences, of very soft society and
great showing. Indeed, to speak feelingly of him, he is the card
or calendar of gentry; for you shall find in him the continent of
what part a gentleman would see.

7

V,2,3770

Your lordship speaks most infallibly of him.

8

V,2,3773

Sir?

9

V,2,3777

Of Laertes?

10

V,2,3781

I know you are not ignorant-

11

V,2,3784

You are not ignorant of what excellence Laertes is-

12

V,2,3787

I mean, sir, for his weapon; but in the imputation laid on him
by them, in his meed he's unfellowed.

13

V,2,3790

Rapier and dagger.

14

V,2,3792

The King, sir, hath wager'd with him six Barbary horses;
against the which he has impon'd, as I take it, six French
rapiers and poniards, with their assigns, as girdle, hangers, and
so. Three of the carriages, in faith, are very dear to fancy,
very responsive to the hilts, most delicate carriages, and of
very liberal conceit.

15

V,2,3801

The carriages, sir, are the hangers.

16

V,2,3807

The King, sir, hath laid that, in a dozen passes between
yourself and him, he shall not exceed you three hits; he hath
laid on twelve for nine, and it would come to immediate trial
if your lordship would vouchsafe the answer.

17

V,2,3812

I mean, my lord, the opposition of your person in trial.

18

V,2,3818

Shall I redeliver you e'en so?

19

V,2,3820

I commend my duty to your lordship.

20

V,2,3909

Ay, my good lord.

21

V,2,3928

A hit, a very palpable hit.

22

V,2,3954

Nothing neither way.

23

V,2,3959

Look to the Queen there, ho!

24

V,2,3961

How is't, Laertes?

25

V,2,4011

Young Fortinbras, with conquest come from Poland,
To the ambassadors of England gives
This warlike volley.
