Enter TRANIO as
MERCHANT booted and
dressed like VINCENTIO
LUCENTIO) Sir, this is the house.
Please it you that I call?
Ay, what else? and but I be deceived,
Signior Baptista may remember me,
Near twenty years ago, in Genoa,
5Where we were lodgers at the Pegasus.
LUCENTIO) 'Tis well; and
hold your own, in any case,
With such austerity as 'longeth to a father.
But, sir, here comes your boy.
'Twere good he were schooled.
LUCENTIO) Fear you not
Now do your duty throughly, I advise you.
Imagine ’twere the right Vincentio.
Tut, fear not me.
LUCENTIO) But hast thou done thy
errand to Baptista?
15I told him that your father was at Venice,
And that you looked for him this day in Padua.
