Enter with drum and colors EDMUND, REGAN, gentlemen, and soldiers
(to a gentleman) Know of the duke if his last purpose hold,
Or whether since he is advised by aught
To change the course. He’s full of alteration
And self-reproving. Bring his constant pleasure.
5Our sister’s man is certainly miscarried.
'Tis to be doubted, madam.
Now, sweet lord,
You know the goodness I intend upon you.
Tell me but truly—but then speak the truth—
Do you not love my sister?
10But have you never found my brother’s way
To the forfended place?
That thought abuses you.
I am doubtful that you have been conjunct
And bosomed with her as far as we call hers.
15No, by mine honor, madam.
