This Lord go to him? Jupiter forbid,
And say in Thunder, Achilles go to him.

Neft. O this is well, he rubs the Vein of him.
Dio. And how his filence drinks up his Applause.

Ajax. If I go to him with my armed Fift, I'll pash him o'er the Face. Aga, o no, you shall not go.

O
Ajax. And a be proud with me, I'll phese his Pride ; let

; me go to him.

Ulys. Not for the worth that hangs upon our Quarrel.
Ajax. A paultry Insolent Fellow-
Neft. How he describes himself.
Ajax. Can he not be sociable ?
Vlys. The Raven chides blackness.
Ajax. I'll let his Humours Bload.
Aga. He will be the Phyfician, that should be the patient.
Ajax. And all Men were a my Mind
Ulys. Wit would be out of fashion.

Ajax. A should not bear it so, a should eat Swords Grft; shall Pride carry it?

Neft. And 'would, you'd carry half.
Vlys. A would have ten shares.

Ajax. I will knead him, I'll make him supple, he's not yet through warm.

Neft. Force him with Praises, pour in, pour in, his Ambition is dry.

Vlyf. My Lord, you feed too much on this dislike.
Neft. Our noble General, do not do so.
Dio. You must prepare to fight without Achilles.

Vlys. Why, 'tis this naming of him doth him harm.
Here is a Man-..-but 'tis before his Face.....
I will be filent.

Neft. Wherefore should you so ?
He is not emulous, as Achilles is.

Ulys. Know the whole World, he is: as valiant.

Ajax. A whorlon Dog! that shall palter thus with us would he were a Trojan.

Neft. What a Vice were it in Ajax now---
Ulys. If he were proud.
Dio. Or covetous of Praise.
Ulys. Ay, or surly born.

Dio. Or strange, or self-affected.

(posure Ulys. Thank the Heavens, Lord, thou art of a sweet ComPraise him that got thee, the that gave thee fuck: Fame be thy Tutor, and thy parts of Nature Thrice fam'd beyond, beyond all Erudition;

But he that disciplin'd thy Arms to fight, | Let Mars divide Eternity in twain,

And give him half; and for thy Vigor,
Bull-bearing Milo his addition yield
To Sinewy Ajax: I will not praise thy Wisdom
Which, like a bourn, a pale, a shore, confines
Thy spacious and dilated parts; here's Nestor
Instructed by the Antiquary times:
He must, he is, he cannot but be wise.
But pardon, Father Nestor, were your Days
As green as Ajax, and your Brain so temper’d,
You should not have the eminence of him
But be as Ajax.

Ajax. Shall I call you Father?
Ulys. Ay, my good Son.
Dio. Be ruld by him, Lord Ajax.

Ulys. There is no tarrying here, the Hart Achilles
Keeps thicket; please it our General,
To call together all this State of War;
Fresh Kings are come to Troy ; to Morrow
We must with all our main of Power stand fast :
And here's a Lord (come Knights from East to West,
And cull their Flower) Ajax Thall cope the best.

Aga. Go we to Council, let Achilles sleep;
Light Boats may fail swift, though great bulks draw deep.

So dying Love lives still,
O ho a while, but ha ha ha;
O ho groans out for ha ha ha hey ho.
