I have eyes upon him, And his affairs come to me on the wind.
Where is he now? OcТА. .
My Lord, in Athens.
Hath nodded him to her. He hath given his empire
More larger list of sceptres.
Ay me, most wretched, That have my heart parted betwixt two friends
That do afflict each other!
Welcome hither :
And ever welcome to us.
Each heart in Rome does love and pity you :
And gives his potent regiment to a trull,
That noises it against us.
Is it so, Sir ?
SCENE VII. Near Actium. ANTONY's Camp.
Enter CLEOPATRA and ENOBARBUS.
CLEO. I will be even with thee, doubt it not.
And say'st it is not fit.
Well, is it, is it?
Be there in person.
Well, I could reply:

The absolute soldiership you have by land ;
way which promises assurance; and
From firm security.
I'll fight at sea.
Enter a Messenger.
Cæsar has taken Toryne.
Strange that his power should be. Canidius,
Enter a Soldier.
How now, worthy Soldier!
Trust not to rotten planks : do you misdoubt
And fighting foot to foot.
Well, well. Away!
Not in the power on’t: so our leader's led,
And we are women's men.
You keep by land
Publicola, and Cælius, are for sea;
Carries beyond belief.
While he was yet in Rome,
Beguild all spies.
Well I know the man.
Enter a Messenger.
