Another room in the same.
Enter Provost and a Servant
He’s hearing of a cause; he will come straight
I’ll tell him of you.
5His pleasure; may be he will relent. Alas,
He hath but as offended in a dream!
All sects, all ages smack of this vice; and he
To die for’t!
Now, what’s the matter. Provost?
10Is it your will Claudio shall die tomorrow?
Did not I tell thee yea? Hadst thou not order?
Why dost thou ask again?
Lest I might be too rash:
Under your good correction, I have seen,
15When, after execution, judgment hath
Repented o’er his doom.
Go to; let that be mine:
Do you your office, or give up your place,
And you shall well be spared.
