Wisdom? To leave his wife and his babes. He loves us not.
My father is not dead for all you are saying.
You must have patience, madam.
Yes, he is dead. How wilt thou do for a father?
Nay, how will you do for a husband?
I am so much a fool, should I stay longer It would be my disgrace and your discomfort. I takr my leave at once.
Now god help thee, poor monkey! But how will thou do for a father?
If he were dead, you'd weep for him. If you would not, it were a good sign that I should Quickly have a new father.
Bless you, fair dame! I am not to you known, Though in your state of honor I am perfect. I doubt some danger does approach you dearly.
Whither should I fly? I have done no harm.
If you will take a homely man's advice, Be not found here. Hence with your little ones! To fright you thus methinks I am too savage; To do worse to you were fell cruelty, Which is too nigh your person. Heaven preserve you!
Do I put up that womanly defense To say I have done no harm?
