Sapho. Wilt thou forsake the ferrie, and followe the court as a Page?

SCHÆN TERTIA.--〈A Street.〉

MOLUS, CRYTICUS, CALYPHO.

Enter Molus and Criticus, meeting.〉

Molus. Cryticus comes in good time, I shall not bee alone. What newes Cryticus?

Ctiti. I taught you that lesson, to aske what newes, & this is the newes: to morow ther shalbe a desperate fray betweene two, made

at all weapons, from the browne bill to the bodkin.5

Molus. Now thou talkest of frayes, I pray thee what is that, whereof they talke so commonlye in courte, valour, the stab, the pistoll, for the which euery man that dareth is so much honoured?

Criti. O Molus, beware of valour! hee that can looke bigge, and

weare his dagger pomel lower thẽ the point, that lyeth at a good10
warde, and can hit a button with a thrust, and will into the field man to man for a boute or two, he, Molus, is a shrewd fellow, and shall be well followed.

Molus. What is the end?

Criti. Daunger or death.15

Molus. If it be but death that bringeth all this commendation, I account him as valiant that is killed with a surfet, as with a sword.

Criti. How so?

Molus. If I venture vpon a full stomacke to eat a rasher on the20
coales, a carbonado, drinke a carouse, swallow all things that may procure sicknesse or death, am not I as valiaunt to die so in a house, as the other in a field? Me thinkes that Epicures are as desperate as soldiours, and cookes prouide as good weapons as
cutlers.25
