Both sides are even: Here I'll sit i tho midst.
Be large in mirth; anon we 'll drink a measure
The table round. — There 's blood upon thy face.

[p To the Murtherer afide, at the door. Mür. 'Tis Banquo's then.

Macb. 'Tis better thee without, than 9 he within. Is he dispatch'd ?

Mur. My Lord, his throat is cut'; ' that I did for him. Macb. Thou art the best o'th' cut-throats; yet he's

good, That did the like for Fleance; if thou didit it, Thou art the non-pareil.

Mur. Most royal Sir, Fleance is scap'd:

Macb. Then comes my fit again: I had else been perfect,
Whole as the marble, founded as the 'rock ;
As broad, and general, as the casing air:
But now I am cabin'd, cribb’d, confin'd, bound in
To fawcy doubts and fears. – Bat Banquo's safe?

Mur. Ay, my good Lord: safe in a ditch he bides,
With twenty trenched gashes on his head;
The leaft-a death to nature,

Macb. Thanks for that;-
There the grown ferpent lies; the worm that 's fied,
Hath nature that in time will venom breed,
Nồ teeth for th' present. - Get thee gone; to-morrow
We 'll hear ourselves again.

Lady. My royal Lord,
You do not give the cheer; the feast is sold,
That is not often vouch'd (while 'tis Wa making)
'Tis given with welcome. To feed, were beft at home;
From thence, the fawce to meat is ceremony;
Meeting were bare without it.

[ The Ghost of Banquo rises, and sits in Macbeth's place.
Macb. Sweet remembrancer!
Now good digestion wait on appetite
And health on both !

Len. May 't please your Highness fit?

Macb. Here had we now our country's honour roof'd,
Were the grąc'd person of our Banquo present,
» Who may I rather challenge for unkindness,

Than pity for mischance.

Rofe. His abfence, Sir,
Lays blame upon his promise. Please 't your Highness
To grace us with your royal company?
Macb. The table's full.

Len. Here is a place reserv’d, Sir.
Macb. Where?
Len. Here, my good Lord. What is 't that moves your

Highness ?

Macb. Tbou canft not say I did it: never shake Thy goary locks at me.

Roffe. Gentlemen, rise; his Highness is not well.

Lady. Sit, worthy friends. My Lord is often thus,
And hath been from his youth. Pray you, keep seat.
The fit is momentary,

upon a thought
He will again be well. If much you note him,
You shall offend him and extend his paffion.
Feed, and regard him not.- Are you a man?

[ To Macbeth afide. Macb. Ay, and a bold one, that dare look on that, Which might appal the devil.

Lady. O proper stuff!
This is the very painting of your fear;
This is the air-drawn dagger, which you

Led you to Duncan. O, these flaws and starts,
• Impostors to true fear, would well become
A woman's story at a winter's fire
Authoriz'd by her grandam. Shame itself !
Why do you make such faces? When all 's donc,
You look but on a ftool.

Macb. If I ftand here, I saw him,
Lady. Fie, for shame!

Macb. Blood hath been thed ere now, i th' olden time,
Ere human fatute purg'd the gentle weal;
Ay, and since too, murthers have been perform'd
Too terrible for d the ear ; the times e have been,
That when the brains were out, the man would die,
And there an end; but now they rise again
With twenty mortal murthers on their crowns,
And push us from our stools; this is more strange
Than such a murther is.

Lady. My worthy Lord,
Your noble friends do lack you.

Macb. If do forget
Do not muse at me, my moft worthy friends;
· I have a strange infirmity, which is nothing

To those that know me. & Come, love and health to all!
Then I'll fit down : give me some wine, fill full-
I drink to th' general joy o' the whole table,
And to our dear friend Banquo, whom we miss;

Would he were here! to all, and him, we thirst,

Lords. Our duties and the pledge.

The ghost rises again. Macb. Avaunt, and quit my fight ! 'Let the earth hide

Thy bones are marrowless, thy blood is cold;
m Thou hast no speculation in those eyes
Which thou dost glare with.

Lady. Think of this, good Peers,
But as a thing of custom; ’tis no other;
Only it spoils the pleasure of the time.

Macb. What man dare, I dare,
Approach thou like the rugged Ruffian bear,
The arm'd rhinoceros, or "th' Hyrcan tyger,
Take any shape but that, and my firm nerves
Shall never tremble: ° or be alive again,
