• Enter LEPIDUS, MECAENAS, and AGRIPPA

    LEPIDUS

    Trouble yourselves no further. Pray you, hasten
    Your generals after.

    AGRIPPA

                                           Sir, Mark Antony
    Will e’en but kiss Octavia, and we’ll follow.

    LEPIDUS

    Till I shall see you in your soldiers’ dress,
    5Which will become you both, farewell.

    MAECENAS

                                                                                 We shall,
    As I conceive the journey, be at the Mount
    Before you, Lepidus.

    LEPIDUS

                                              Your way is shorter.
    My purposes do draw me much about.
    You’ll win two days upon me.

    MAECENAS, AGRIPPA

                                                             Sir, good success.

    LEPIDUS

    10Farewell.
    Exeunt
  • LEPIDUS, MAECENAS, and AGRIPPA enter.

    LEPIDUS

    Don’t spend any more time here. Go tell your generals to hurry their preparations.

    AGRIPPA

    Sir, we’ll follow as soon as Mark Antony kisses Octavia good-bye.

    LEPIDUS

    Good-bye then, until the time I see you dressed in your battle gear, which will suit you both very well.

    MAECENAS

    According to my reckoning, we’ll get to Mt. Misena before you, Lepidus.

    LEPIDUS

    You’re taking a shorter route. My plans take me a roundabout way. You’ll get there two days before me.

    BOTH

    Good luck, sir.

    LEPIDUS

    Farewell.
    They exit.
