Act V Scene 1 Location: Dunsinane, Macbeth's Castle
I have two nights watch'd with you, but can perceive no truth in your report. When was it she last walk'd ?
A great perturbation in nature t receive at once benefit of sleep, and do the effects of watching. In this slumb'ry agitation, besides her walking, and other actual performances, what ( at any time ) have you heard her say ?
Since his majesty went into the field, I have seen her rise from her bed, throw her nightgown upon her, unlock her closet, take forth paper, fold it, write upon't, read it, afterwards seal it, and again return to bed: yet all this while in a most fast asleep.
That, sir, which I will not report after her.
Neither to you, nor anyone, having no witness to confirm my speech.
