Clitus.Parmenio, I cannot tel how it commeth to passe, that in Alexander now a dales there groweth an vnpatiẽt kinde of life: in the morning he is melancholy, at noone solomne, at all times either more sower or seuere, then he was accustomed.

Par. In kinges causes I rather loue to doubt then coniecture, and5
think it better to be ignomunt then inquisitiue: they haue long eares and stretched armes, in whose heades suspition is a proofe, and to be accused is to be condemned.

Clitus. Yet betweene vs there canne be no danger to finde out

the cause: for that there is no malice to withstand it. It may be an10
vnquenchable thirste of conquering maketh him vnquiet: it is not vnlikly his long ease hath altred his humour: that he should bee in loue, it is not impossible.

S. D. [The curtains close] no direction for exit in previous eds.
not om. Bl. F.
iniuried old eds.: injured Dods. F.
