Be you in the park about midnight, athernes' oak, and you shall see wonders. Ford, Went you not to her yesterday, sir, as you told me you had appointed 2 Fal. I went to her, master Brook, as you see, like a poor old man: but I came from her, master Brook, like apoor old woman. That same knave, her husband, hath the finest mad devil of jealousy in him, master Brook, that ever governed frenzy. I will tell you.-He beat me

Since I plucked geese, played truant, and whipped top, Iknew not what it was to be beaten, till lately. Follow me: I'll tell you strange things of this knave Ford; on whom to-night I will be revenged, and I will deliver his wife into your hand.—Follow; strange things in hand, master Brook' follow.

And nightly, meadow-fairies, look, you sing, Like to the Garter's compass, in a ring : The expressure that it bears, green let it be, More fertile-fresh than all the field to see; And, Hony sort quinal y pense, write, In emerald tufts, flowers, purple, blue, and white; Like sapphire, pearl, and rich embroidery, Buckled below fair knight-hood's bending knee: Fairies use flowers for their charactery. Away; disperse! But, till 'tis one o'clock, Our dance of custom, round about the oak Of Herne the hunter, let us not forget! Eva.

Doctor Caius comes one way, and steals away a fairy in green; Slender another way, and takes off a fairy in white: and Fenton comes, and steals away Mrs Anne Page. A noise of hunting is made within. All the fairies run away. Falstaff pulls off his buck's head, and rises. Enter Pace, Ford, Mrs Page, and Mrs Fond. They lay hold of him. Page. Nay, do not fly! I think, we have watch'd you now : Will none but Herne the hunter serve your turn ? Mrs Page. I pray you, come; hold up the jest no higher!- - - Now, good sir John, how like you windsor wives? See you these, husband? do not these fairyokes become the forest better than the town? Ford. Now, sir,who's a cuckold now?-Master Brook, Falstaff's a knave, a cuckoldiy knave; here are his horns, master Brook: and, master Brook, he hath enjoyed nothing of Ford's but his buck—basket, his cudgel, and twenty pounds of money; which must be paid

to master Brook: his horses are arrested for it, master Brook. Mrs Ford. Sir John, we have had ill luck; we could never meet. I will never take you for my love again,but I will always count you my deer. Fal. I do begin to perceive that I am made an ass. Ford. Ay, and an ox too; both the proofs are extant. Fal. And these are not fairies 2 I was three or four times in the thought, they were not fairies: and yet the guiltiness of my mind, the sudden surprise of my powers drove the grossness of the foppery into a received belief, in despite of the teeth of all rhyme and reason, that they were fairies. See now,how witnay be made a Jack-a-lent, when 'tis upon ill employment! Eva. Sir John Falstaff, serve Got, and leave your desires, aud fairies will not pinse you. Ford. Well said, fairy Hugh. Eva. And leave you your jealousies too, I pray you. Ford. I will never mistrust my wife again, till thou art able to woo her in good English. Fal. Have I laid my brain in the sun, and dried it,that it wants matter to prevent so gross o'er-reaching as this? Am I ridden with a Welch goat too 2 Shall I have a coxcomb of frize?'tis time I were choaked with a piece of toasted cheese. Eva. Seese is not good to give putter; your pelly is all putter. Fal.

Mrs Ford. Nay, husband, let that go to make amends: Forgive that sum, and so we'll all be friends. Ford. Well, here's my hand; all's forgiven at last. Page. Yet be cheerfull, knight: thou shalt eat a posset to-night at my house; where I will desire thee to laugh at my wife, that now laughs at thee. Tell her, master Slender hath married her daugther. Mrs Page. Doctors doubt that: if Anne Page bemy daugther, she is, by this, doctor Caius' wife. [Aside. Enzer SLExpert. Slen. Whoo, hol ho! father Page' Page.

If I had been married to him, for all he was in woman's apparel, I would not have had him. Page. Why, this is your own folly. Did not I tell you, how you should know my daughter by her garments? Slen. I went to her in white, and cry’d mum, and she cry’d budget, as Anne and I had appointed; and yet it was not Anne, but a postmaster's boy. Eva. Jeshu ! Master Slender, cannot you see but marry boys? Page. O, I am vexed at heart: what shall I do? Mrs Page. Good George, be not angry: I knew of your purpose; turned my daughter into green; and, indeed, she is now with the doctor at the deanery, and there married. Enter CAius. Caius. Vere is mistress Page? By gar, I am cozened; I ha' married un garçon, a boy; un paisan, by gar, a boy; it is not Anne Page: by gar, I am cozened. Mrs Page. Why, did you take her in green? Caius. Ay, be gar, and ’tis a boy: be gar, I’ll raise all Windsor. [Exit Caius. Ford. This is strange ' Who hath got the right Anne? Page. My heart misgives me. Here comes master Fenton. Enter FENToN and ANNE PAGE. How now, master Fenton 2 Anne. Pardon, good father! good my mother, pardon' Page. Now, mistress? how chance you went not with master Slender ?

Mrs. off; Why went you not with master doctor, maid? Fent. You do amaze her: hear the truth of it ! You would have married her most shamefully, Where there was no proportion held in love. The truth is, She and I, long since contracted, Are now so sure, that nothing can dissolve us, The offence is holy, that she hath committed: And this deceitloses the name of craft, Of disobedience, or unduteous title; Since therein she doth evitate and shun A thousand irreligious cursed hours, Which forced marriage would have brought upon her. Ford. Stand not amazed; here is no remedy; — In love, the heavens themselves do guide the state; Money buys lands, and wives are sold by fate. Fal. I am glad, though you have ta'en a special stand to strike at me, that your arrow hath glanced. Page. well, what remedy? Fenton, heaven give thee Joy: What cannot be eschew’d, must be embrac'd. Fal. When night—dogs run, all sorts of deer are f chas'd. Eva. I will dance and eat plums at your wedding. Mrs Page. Well, I will muse no further: — Master Fenton, Heaven give you many, many merry days!— Good husband, let us every one go home, And laugh this sport o'er by a country fire; Sir John and all ! Ford.

By my troth, sir Toby, you must come in earlier o’ nights; your cousin, my lady, takes great exceptions to your ill hours. Sir To. Why, lether except before excepted. Mar. Ay, but you must confine yourself within the modest limits of order. Sir. To. Confine? I'll confiue myself no finer than I am : these clothes are good enough to drinkin, and so be these boots too; an they be mot, let them hang themselves in their own straps. Mar.

'Faith, I’ll home to-morrow, sir Toby: your niece will not be seen; or, if she be, it's four to one she'll mone of me: the count himself, here hard by, wooes her. Sir To.

O, then unfold the passion of my love, Surprise her with discourse of my dear faith: It shall become thee well to act my woes; She will attend it better in thy youth, Than in a nuncio of more grave aspect. Poio. I think not so, my lord. Duke. Dear lad, believe it! For they shall yet belie thy happy years, That say, thou art a man: Diana's lip Is not more smooth, and rubious; thy small pipe Is as the maiden's organ, shrill, and sound, And all is semblative a woman’s part. I know, thy constellation is right apt For this all air. — Some four, or five, attend him; All, if you will; for I myself am best, When least in company. — Prosper well in this, And thou shalt live as freely as thy lord, To call his fortunes thine.
