Prove this, thou wicked Hannibal, or I’ll have mine action of battery on thee.
        Shakespeare.—Measure for Measure, Act II. Scene 1. (Elbow to Escalus.)
  2
Why does he suffer this rude knave now to knock him about the sconce with a dirty shovel, and will not tell him of his action of battery?
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act V. Scene 1. (Hamlet to Horatio.)
