Mac. Go, bid thy miftrefs, when my drink is ready,
She strike upon the bell. Get thee to bed.
Is this a dagger which I fee before me,
The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee.
I have thee not, and yet I fee thee ftill.
Art thou not, fatal vifion, fenfible
Thou marshall'ft me the way that I was going;
Mine eyes are made the fools o' th' other senses,
* All before T. omit and Fleance,
• And on thy blade and dudgeon, "gouts of blood, Which was not so before.-There's no fuch thing.It is the bloody bufinefs, which informs.
Thus to mine eyes. -* Now o'er the one half world
The curtain'd fleep; now witchcraft celebrates
Alarum'd by his centinel, the wolf,
Whose howl's his watch, thus with his ftealthy pace,
ftrides, towards his defign
Moves like a ghoft.-Thou found and firm-fet earth,
And take the present horror from the time,
Which now fuits with it. Whiles I threat, he livesWords to the heat of deeds too cold breath gives.
z A lady proposes, with her for wi- in the text, but preferved in the mar
I I go, and it is done;, the bell invites me;
[A bell rings.
Lady. That which hath made them drunk, hath made me
What hath quench'd them, hath given me fire. Hark!
It was the owl that fhriek'd, the fatal bell-man,
Which gives the ftern'ft good-night-He is about it —
Do mock their charge with fnores. I have drugg'd their poffets,
That death and nature do contend about them,
Whether they live or die.
Mac. Who's there? what ho?
Lady. Alack! I am afraid, they have awak'd;
f This is Sc. II. in the fo's and
g The fo's, R. P. T. and W..omit Macbeth.
Mac. I have done the deed-Didft thou not hear a noife?
Did not you speak?
Mac. As I defcended?
Mac. Hark!-who lies i' th' fecond chamber?
Mac. This is a forry fight.
[Looks on his hands.
Lady. A foolish thought, to fay a forry fight.
Mac. There's one did laugh in 's fleep, and one cry'd murther!
That they did wake each other; I ftood and heard them; But they did fay their prayers, and addreft them
Again to fleep.
Lady. There are two lodg'd together.
Mac. One cry'd, God blefs us, and, Amen, the other; As they had seen me with these hangman's hands;
Liftning their fear, I could not say, Amen,
When they did fay, God blefs us.
Lady. Confider it not fo deeply.
Mac. But wherefore could not I pronounce, Amen? I had most need of blessing, and Amen
Stuck in my throat.
Lady. Thefe deeds must not be thought After these ways; fo, it will make us mad.

Mac. Methought I heard a voice cry, "Sleep no more; Macbeth does murther fleep; the innocent fleep;
'Sleep, that knits up the ravell'd m fleave of care,
Mac. Still it cry'd, Sleep no more, to all the house; Glamis hath murther'd fleep: And therefore. Cawdor
Shall fleep no more; Macbeth hall fleep no more!"
I am afraid to think what I have done;
Look on 't again, I dare not..
Lady. Infirm of purpose!
Give me the daggers. The fleeping and the dead,
I P. and H. omit this line in their duce to order all that confufion and vexa
