[Enter SEBASTIAN and ANTONIO]
 
SEBASTIAN
          ,          ,        ,           ,        ,
      I would | not by | my will | have troub|led you;
            ,           ,           ,        ,          ,
      But since | you make | your plea|sure of | your pains,
          ,        ,         ,          o   oo
      I will | no fur|ther chide | you.   |
 
ANTONIO
          ,           ,        ,          ,       ,
      I could | not stay | behind | you: my | desire
              ,           ,       ,           ,         ,
      (More sharp | than fil|ed steel)| did spur | me forth;
           ,          ,        ,            ,          ,
      And not | all love | to see | you (though | so much
           ,            ,      ,    2     ,        ,
      As might | have drawn | one to a | longer | voyage)
           ,      ,          ,         ,            x
      But jea|lousy | what might | befall | your travel,
        2     ,        ,           ,       ,     2      ,
      Being skil|less in | these^parts;| which to a | stranger,
          ,      ,        ,         ,       ,
10    Unguid|ed and | unfrien|ded, of|ten prove
        ,          ,     ,  2         ,         ,
      Rough and | unhos|pitable:| my wil|ling love,
           ,       ,          ,     ,          ,
      The ra|ther by | these ar|guments | of fear,
            ,          ,         ,
      Set forth | in your | pursuit.
 
SEBASTIAN
                                         ,       ,    , ->
                                    My kind | Anto||nio,
         ,       ,       ,        ,            ,   ->
      I can | no o|ther an|swer make || but thanks,
             ,         ,      ,            ,
      And thanks;| and e|ver oft | good* turns
            ,        ,           ,       ,        ,
      Are shuf|fled off | with such | uncur|rent pay:
            ,         ,         ,       ,            ,
      But were | my worth | as is | my con|science firm,
             ,           ,        ,         ,          ,
      You should | find bet|ter deal|ing. What's | to do?
             ,       ,         ,       ,          ,
20    Shall we | go see | the re|lics of | this town?
 
ANTONIO
         ,       ,           ,         ,           ,       ->
      Tomor|row sir,| best^first | go see | your lodg||ing.
 
SEBASTIAN
      ,     2     ,              ,    ,         ,
      I | am not wea|ry, and / 'tis long | to night:
          ,         ,        ,     ,         ,
      I pray | you let | us sat|isfy | our eyes
        ,           ,    ,       2       ,          ,
      With the | memor|ials | and the things | of fame
            ,       ,          ,
      That do | renown | this ci|ty.
 
ANTONIO
                                      ,            ,      2   ->
                                    Would | you'd par||don me;
      ,       ,       2     ,        ,             ,
      I | do not | without dan|ger walk | these streets:
        ,    2     T    T      T           ,          ,       2->
      Once in a | sea-fight gainst | the count | his gal||leys
         ,          ,               ,    ,        ,
      I did | some ser|vice; of / such note | indeed,
             ,        ,      ,    2           ,         ,
30    That were | I tane | here it would | scarce be | answered.
 
SEBASTIAN
          ,          ,      ,    ,        2       ,
      Belike | you slew | great num/ber of his | people.
 
ANTONIO
         2    ,         ,         ,        ,      ,      2->
      The offense | is not | of such | a blood|y na||ture,
          x          ,    ,     2      ,           x
      Albeit | the qual|ity | of the time | and quarrel
              ,           x          ,      ,     ,
      Might well | have given | us bloo|dy ar|gument.
           ,            ,           ,         ,      ,      ->
      It might | have since | been an|swered in | repay||ing
        ,         ,           ,         2      ,          ,
      What | we took | from them;| which for traf|fic's sake
        ,            ,     ,     ,         ,            ,  ->
      Most of | our ci|ty did.| Only | myself || stood^out;
            ,      ,  2        ,               ,
      For which,| if I be | lapsed in | this place,
                 ,    ,
      I shall / pay dear.
 
SEBASTIAN
                             ,           ,        ,     2->
40                       Do not | then walk | too o||pen.
 
ANTONIO
           ,         ,          ,           ,           ,
      It doth | not fit | me. Hold | sir, here's | my purse.
                 ,    ,        ,        ,     ,
      In the / south sub|urbs at | the El|ephant,
           ,         ,         ,        ,           x
      Is best | to lodge:| I will | bespeak | our diet,
         ,      2     ,           ,          ,           ,
      Whiles you be|guile the | time and | feed your | knowledge
             ,       ,         ,      ,        2        ,
      With view|ing of | the town:| there shall you | have me.
 
SEBASTIAN
          ,          ,
      Why I | your purse?  ????
 
ANTONIO
       ,            ,            ,        ,         ,
      Haply | your eye | shall light | upon | some toy
            ,        ,        ,          ,           ,
      You have | desire | to pur|chase; and | your store,
          ,         ,        ,      ,         ,
      I think,| is not | for i|dle mar|kets, sir.
 
SEBASTIAN
        ,    2         ,     ,              ,
50    I'll be your | purse-bear/er, and | leave you
         2    ,
      For an hour.
 
ANTONIO
                    2    ,     ,
                  To the E|lephant.
 
SEBASTIAN
                                    ,   2    ,
                                    I do re|member.
