Excerpt

Juan de Castro:

Do not hea[t] your self, you will surfeit.

Cacafogo:

Thou wan'st my mony too, with a pair of base bones, In whom there was no truth, for which I beat thee, I beat thee much, now I will hurt thee dangerously. This shall provoke thee.

[He strikes.

Alonzo:

You struck too low by a foot Sir.

Juan de Castro:

You must get a ladder when you would beat This fellow.

Leon:

I cannot chuse but kick again, pray pardon me.

Cacafogo:

Had'st thou not ask'd my pardon, I had kill'd thee, I leave thee as a thing despis'd, assoles manus a vostra siniare a Maistre.

[Exit Cacafogo.

Alonzo:

You have scap'd by miracle, there is not in all Spain, A spirit of more fury than this fire drake.

Leon:

I see he is hasty, and I would give him leave 179] To beat me soundly if he would take my bond.

Juan de Castro:

What shall I do with this fellow?

Alon
