pure vows on my altars.

CLI. But....

BEL. Farewell. This ought really to satisfy you, and I have said more than I wished to say.

CLI. But your error....

BEL. Leave me. I am blushing now; and my modesty has had much to bear.

CLI. May I be hanged if I love you; and.... [Footnote: Molière ends this line with sage, with, apparently, no other motive than to find a rhyme to _davantage._]

BEL. No, no. I will hear nothing more.


SCENE V. CLITANDRE (_alone_)

ACT II.

SCENE I.--ARISTE (leaving CLITANDRE, _and still speaking to him_).

SCENE II; CHRYSALE, ARISTE.

ARI. Good day to you, brother.
