ACT II. SCENE I.
CYMBE LINE’s Palace. Enter CloteN, and two Lords.
Was there ever man had such luck when I kiss'd the jack upon an up-cast, to be hit away ! I had an hundred pound on’t : and them a whoreson jackamapes must take me up for swearing ; as if I
borrow'd my oaths of him, and might not spend them at my pleasure. 1 Lord. What got he by that You have broke his pate with your bowl. 2 Lord. If his wit had been like him that broke it, it would have run all out. [Aside. Clot. When a gentleman is dispos'd to swear, it is not for any standers-by to curtail his oaths ; Har 12 2 Lord. No, my lord; nor crop the ears of them. [Aside. Clot. Whoreson dog —I give him satisfaction : 'Would, he had been one of my rank I 2 Lord. To have smelt like a fool. [Aside. Clot. I am not vex'd more at anything in the earth -A pox on't : I had rather not be so noble as I am; they dare not fight with me, because of the queen my mother: every jack-slave hath his belly full of fighting, and I must go up and down like a cock that no

There's an Italian come; and, 'tis thought, one of Leonatus' friends. Clot. Leonatus a banish'd rascal; and he's another, whatsoever he be. Who told you of this stranger? 41 1 Lord. One of your lordship's pages. Clot. Is it fit, I went to look upon him Is there no derogation in't 1 Lord. You cannot derogate, my lord. Clot. Not easily, I think. 2 Lord. You are a fool granted; therefore your issues being foolish, do not derogate. [Aside. Clot. Come, I'll go see this Italian: What I have lost to-day at bowls, I'll win to-night of him. Come, go. 51 2 Lord. I'll attend your lordship. [Exeunt Clot EN, and first Lord, That such a crafty devil as his mother Should yield the world this ass! a woman, that Bears all down with her brain; and this her son Cannot take two from twenty for his heart, And leave eighteen. Alas, poor princess, Thou divine Imogen, what thou endur'st!
