Enter EDMUND the bastard and CURAN, severally
And you, sir. I have been with your father and given him
notice that the Duke of Cornwall and Regan his duchess
will be here with him this night.
Nay, I know not. You have heard of the news abroad?—
I mean the whispered ones, for they are yet but ear-kissing
Not I. Pray you, what are they?
10Have you heard of no likely wars toward ’twixt the two
Dukes of Cornwall and Albany?
You may do then in time. Fare you well, sir.
The duke be here tonight? The better—best!
15This weaves itself perforce into my business.
My father hath set guard to take my brother.
And I have one thing, of a queasy question,
Which I must act. Briefness and fortune, work!—
Brother, a word. Descend, brother, I say.
