Street near the City Gate.
Enter ISABELLA and MARIANA.
| Isab. To speak so indirectly I am loath:|
|I would say the truth; but to accuse him so,|
|That is your part: yet Im advisd to do it;|| 5|
|He says, to veil full purpose.|
| Mari. Be ruld by him.|
| Isab. Besides, he tells me that if peradventure|
|He speak against me on the adverse side,|
|I should not think it strange; for tis a physic|| 10|

| Isab. O, peace! the friar is come.|
Enter FRIAR PETER.
| F. Peter. Come; I have found you out a stand most fit,|| 15|
|Where you may have such vantage on the duke,|
|He shall not pass you. Twice have the trumpets sounded:|
|The generous and gravest citizens|
|Have hent the gates, and very near upon|
|The duke is entring: therefore hence, away! [Exeunt.|| 20|
