Cre. Upon my Back, to defend my Belly; upon my Wit, to defend my Wiles ; upon my Secresie, to defend mine Honesty, my Mask to defend my Beauty, and defend all these; and at all these Wards I lye at a thousand Watches, Pan. Say one of your

Watches,
Cre. Nay, I'll watch you for that, and that's one of the

Words, Vows, Gifts, Tears, and Loves full Sacrifice,
He offers in another's Enterprize :
But more in Troilus thousand fold ļ see,
Than in the Glass of Pandar's praise may be.
Yet hold I off. Women are Angels wooing,
Things won are done, the Soul's joy lyes in doing:

That the belov'd, knows nought that knows not this;
Men prize the thing ungain'd, more than it is.
That she, was never yet, that ever knew
Love go so sweet, as when desire did sue:
Atchievement is command; ungain'd, beleech.
Therefore this Maxim out of Love I teach;
That though my Hearts Content's firm love doth bear,
Nothing of that shall from ming Eyes appear. [Exit,

SCENE

SCENE II. Agamemnon's Tent in the Grea

cian Camp

Trumpets. Enter Agamemnon, Nestor, Ulysses, Diomedes,

Menelaus, with others.
Agam. Princes;
What Grief hath set the Jaundise on your, Cheeks?
The ample Proposition that hopes make
In all designs begun on Earth below,
Fails in the promis'd largeness; checks and disasters
Grow in the veins of A&ions highest rear d.
As knots by the conflux of meeting Sap,
Infed the sound Pine, and divert his Grain
Tortive and errant from his course of growth.
Nor, Princes, is it matter new to us,
That we come short of our suppose so far,
That after seven years Siege, yet Troy Walls stand;
Sith every Adion that hath gone before,
Whereof we have Record, Trial did draw
Bias and thwart, not answering the aim,
And that unbodied Figure of the thought
That gav't surmised shape. Why then, you Princes,
Do you with Checks abash'd, behold our Works,
And think them shame, which are, indeed, nought else
But the protractive Trials of great Jové,
To find perfiftive Constancy in Men?
The fineness of which Metal is not found
In Fortune's love; for then, the Bold and Coward,
The Wife and Fool, the Artist and unread,
The hard and soft, seem all affin'd, and kins.
But in the Wind and Tempest of her Frown,
Distin&ion with a loud and powerful Fan,
Puffing at all, winnows the light away;
And what hath Mals, or Matter by it felf,
Lies rich in Virtue, and unmingled.

Neft. With due observance of thy godly Seat,
Great Agamemnon, Nestor shall apply
Thy latest Words.
In the reproof of Chance,
