Without annoying me. I say with Mr. Steevens glar'd is certainly the right word. Mr. Malone's phlegmatic note well deserv’d to be perstringed in the manner Mr. Steevens has done it in his second note on this passage in the edition of 1793.
this fearful night,
Most bloody, fiery, and most terrible. I think we may read either is favour'd, or in favours.
But 'tis a common proof,
By which he did ascend.
Brutus, thou sleep'st; awake,The &c. is neither in Theobald's edition, in Johnson's and Steevens's of 1785, nor in Malone's, in all of which, after the word Rome, there is a break-which I think is right. There is no note to inform us why the &c. was inserted in the edition of 1793.

In states unborn, and accents yet unknown ? States is certainly right, and is rightly explained by Mr. Steevens.
Who else must be let blood, who else is rank. I agree with Mr. Steevens that Dr. Johnson's explanation of rank is the true one.
I think limbs is right, and is rightly explained by Mr. Steevens.

The reading of the second folio, wit, is certainly right; I am surprised that any one should doubt it, and still more astonished at the question at the end of Mr. Malone's note.
Brutus, bay not me,
I think Mr. Steevens has clearly shown that bay is the right word.
I am a soldier, I,
