Act II, Scene 4

The same. A street.



  • Lepidus. Trouble yourselves no further: pray you, hasten
    Your generals after.
  • Agrippa. Sir, Mark Antony 1035
    Will e'en but kiss Octavia, and we'll follow.
  • Lepidus. Till I shall see you in your soldier's dress,
    Which will become you both, farewell.
  • Mecaenas. We shall,
    As I conceive the journey, be at the Mount 1040
    Before you, Lepidus.
  • Lepidus. Your way is shorter;
    My purposes do draw me much about:
    You'll win two days upon me.
  • Mecaenas. [with Agrippa] Sir, good success! 1045
  • Lepidus. Farewell.
