By Harry William Pedicord; Fredrick Louis Bergmann et al. | Go to book overview

SOPHIA. What! an abandoned, rash, profligate male-coquette, a wretch who can assume passions he never feels and sport with our sex's

frailties. Fie, fie, Bell.10

ARABELLA. Well, well, you are too angry to be merciful. If he is such a monster, I aM glad you are out of his clutches, and that you can so easily resign him to another.

SOPHIA. To another? There is not that woman, be she ever so handsome, that I hate enough to wish her so much evil. And happy it is for you, Bell, that you have a heart to resist his allurements.

ARABELLA. Yes, I thank my stars. I am not so susceptible of impressions of that kind. And yet I won't swear, if an agreeable man--I--I --

SOPHIA. No, no, Bell, you are not absolute stone; you may be mollified.

TUKELY. Madam, why sure --

SOPHIA. Don't imagine, I say, that you can always see the mind in the face.

TUKELY. I can see, Madam, that your mind is not disposed to wish or make me happy.

SOPHIA. Did not I bid you not to rely upon looks? For do you know

now that my mind is at this time most absolutely disposed to do40
everything that you would have me. (Curtsies.)

TUKELY. Then I have nothing more to wish or ask of fortune. (Kneels and kisses her hand.)

ARABELLA. Come, come, this is no time to attend to one, when you have so many ladies to take care of.

TUKELY. I will not yet inquire into your adventures 'till I have accomplished my own. The ladies within have at last agreed to attend me this evening, where, if you have a mind to finish the picture
