How? The Duke in council? In this time of the night? Bring him away. Mine’s not an idle cause. The Duke himself, Or any of my brothers of the state, Cannot but feel this wrong as ’twere their own.
'Tis true, most worthy signior. The Duke’s in council and your noble self, I am sure, is sent for.
What, in your own part, can you say to this?
Most potent, grave, and reverend signiors, My very noble and approved good masters, That I have ta'en away this old man’s daughter, It is most true. True, I have married her.
Nothing, but this is so.
Come hither, gentle mistress. Do you perceive in all this noble company. Where most you owe obedience?
My noble father, I do perceive here a divided duty. To you I am bound for life and education. My life and education both do learn me. How to respect you. You are the lord of duty. I am hitherto your daughter. But here’s my husband.
