I have two nights watched with you, but can perceive no truth in your report. When was it she last walked?
Since his majesty went into the field, I have seenher rise from her bed, throw her night-gown uponher, unlock her closet, take forth paper, fold it,write upon't, read it, afterwards seal it, and againreturn to bed; yet all this while in a most fast sleep.
A great perturbation in nature, to receive at oncethe benefit of sleep, and do the effects ofwatching! In this slumbery agitation, besides herwalking and other actual performances, what, at any time, have you heard her say?
You may to me: and 'tis most meet you should.
That, sir, which I will not report after her.
Neither to you nor any one; having no witness toconfirm my speech. Lo you, here she comes! This is her very guise;and, upon my life, fast asleep. Observe her; stand close.
How came she by that light?
Why, it stood by her: she has light by hercontinually; 'tis her command.
Ay, but their sense is shut.
You see, her eyes are open
What is it she does now? Look, how she rubs her hands.
It is an accustomed action with her, to seem thuswashing her hands: I have known her continue inthis a quarter of an hour.
Yet here's a spot.
Hark! she speaks: I will set down what comes fromher, to satisfy my remembrance the more strongly.
Do you mark that?
Out, damned spot! out, I say!--One: two: why,then, 'tis time to do't.--Hell is murky!--Fie, mylord, fie! a soldier, and afeard? What need wefear who knows it, when none can call our power toaccount?--Yet who would have thought the old manto have had so much blood in him.
