Enter certain OUTLAWS
Fellows, stand fast. I see a passenger.
If there be ten, shrink not, but down with ’em.
Enter VALENTINE and SPEED
Stand, sir! And throw us that you have about ye.
If not, we’ll make you sit, and rifle you.
5Sir, we are undone. These are the villains
That all the travelers do fear so much.
That’s not so, sir. We are your enemies.
Peace! We’ll hear him.
10Ay, by my beard will we, for he is a proper man.
Then know that I have little wealth to lose.
A man I am, crossed with adversity;
My riches are these poor habiliments,
Of which if you should here disfurnish me
15You take the sum and substance that I have.
Whither travel you?
Whence came you?
20Have you long sojourned there?
Some sixteen months, and longer might have stayed
If crooked fortune had not thwarted me.
