Actus. 2.

Scœna. 2.

[Enter] ORCANES, GAZELLUS, URIBASSA with their traine.

ORCANES. Gazellus,Uribassa, and the rest,
Now will we march from proud Orminius mount
To faire Natolia, where our neighbour kings
Expect our power and our royall presence,

T'incounter with the cruell Tamburlain,5

That nigh Larissa swaies a mighty hoste,
And with the thunder of his martial tooles
Makes Earthquakes in the hearts of men and heaven.

GAZELLUS. And now come we to make his sinowes shake,

With greater power than erst his pride hath felt: 10
An hundred kings by scores wil bid him armes,
And hundred thousands subjects to each score:
Which if a shower of wounding thunderbolts
Should breake out off the bowels of the clowdes
And fall as thick as haile upon our heads, 15
In partiall aid of that proud Scythian,
Yet should our courages and steeled crestes,
And numbers more than infinit of men,
Be able to withstand and conquer him.

URIBASSA. Me thinks I see how glad the christian King 20
Is made, for joy of your admitted truce:
That could not but before be terrified
With unacquainted power of our hoste.

Enter a MESSENGER.

MESSENGER. Arme, arme dread Soveraign and my noble Lords.

The treacherous army of the Christians, 25
Taking advantage of your slender power,
Comes marching on us, and determines straight,
To bid us battaile for our dearest lives.

ORCANES. Traitors, villaines, damned Christians.

Have I not here the articles of peace, 30
And solemne covenants we have both confirm'd,
He by his Christ, and I by Mahomet?

OSD Enter] Oxberry; not in OI. 24 Arme, arme] Craik (this edn.); Arme O1.
