The Merry Wives of Windsor

Act I, Scene 2

The same.
 
[Enter SIR HUGH EVANS and SIMPLE]
 
SIR HUGH EVANS
Go your ways, and ask of Doctor Caius' house which is the way: and there dwells one Mistress Quickly, which is in the manner of his nurse, or his dry nurse, or his cook, or his laundry, his washer, and his wringer.
 
SIMPLE
Well, sir.
 
SIR HUGH EVANS
Nay, it is petter yet. Give her this letter; for it is a woman that altogether's acquaintance with Mistress Anne Page: and the letter is, to desire and require her to solicit your master's desires to Mistress Anne Page. I pray you, be gone: I will make an end of my dinner; there's pippins and cheese to come.
 
[Exeunt]
