Kent. I have a journey, fir, fhortly to go;
My mafter calls, and I must not fay, noi.

Alb. The weight of this fad time we must obey,
Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.
1 The oldeft hath born moft; we that are young,
Shall never fee fo much, nor live fo long.

"[Exeunt with a dead march.

h So the qu's; the rest calls me, I must not, &c.

i Here all but the qu's and H. make Kent die. But this direction is juftly left out; for Kent only declines the share in the government offered him by Albany, on account of his age: how unexpectedly and aukwardly would he die, after faying only, he had a journey fhortly to go, and without bidding farewel, or difcovering any symptoms of death.

k The fo's and R. give this fpeech to Edgar.

1 The two laft lines, as they stand, are filly and falfe; and are only inferted that any one may alter them for the better if he can. H. has not made them a jot better by the following alteration,

The oldeft hath born moft; we that are young

Shall never see so much, live e'er fo long.

The qu's read have for bath.

▸ This direction is not in the qu's.
