Camp. How is she hired: by praier, by sacrifice, or bribs?
Apel. By praier, sacrifice, and bribes.35
Camp. What praier?
Apel. Vowes irreuocable.
Camp. What sacrifice?
Apel. Heartes euer sighing, neuer dissembling.
Camp. What bribes?40
Apel. Roses and kisses: but were you neuer in loue?
Camp. No, nor loue in me.
Apel. Then haue you iniuried many.
Camp. How so?
Apel. Because you haue beene loued of many.45
Camp. Flattered parchance of some.
Apel. It is not possible that a face so faire, & a wit so sharpe, both without comparison, shuld not be apt to loue.
Camp. If you begin to tip your tongue with cunning, I pray dip so your pensil in colours; and fall to that you must doe, not that you would doe. 〈The curtains close.〉

〈Enter CLITUS and PARMENIO.〉
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.____________________
