312 Gent. And thou the velvet; thou art good velvet; thou’rt a three-pil'd piece, I warrant thee: I had as lief be a list of an English kersey, as be pil'd, as thou art pild, for a French velvet. Do I speak feelingly now?
Lucio. I think thou dost; and indeed with most painful feeling of thy speech: I will, out of thine own confession, learn to begin thy health ; but, whilft I live, forget to drink after thee.

§ 2 Gent.
1 Gent. Thou art always figuring diseases in me; buc thou art full of error; I am found.
Lucio. Nay, not, as one would say, healthy; but so found, as things that are hollow; thy bones are hollow; impiety hath made a feast of thee.

i Gent. Who's that, I pr’ythee?
Bawd. Nay, but I know 'tis fo; I saw him arrested ; saw him carry'd away; and which is more, within these three days his head is to be chopt off.
Lucio. But, after all this fooling, I would not have it fo: art thou sure of this?
Bawd. I am too sure of it ; and it is for getting Madam Julietta with child.

Bawd. But shall our houses of resort in the suburbs be pull'd down?
Clown. To the ground, mistress.
Bawd. Why, here's a change indeed in the commonwealth ; what shall become of me?
Clown. Come, fear not you; good counsellors lack no clients; though you change your place, you need not change your trade : I'll be your tapster still
. Courage, there will be pity taken on you; you that have worn your eyes almost out in the service, you will be considered.
Bawd. What's to do here, Thomas Tapster ? let's withdraw.
