That from the sense of all civility
I thus would play and trifle with your reverence,
Your daughter, if you have not given her leave,
I say again, buth made a gross revolt;
Tying her duty, beauty, wit, and fortunes

Bra. Strike on the tinder, ho !
Give me a taper. Call up all my people,
This accident is not unlike my dream,
Belief of it oppresses me already,
Light! I say, light !
