art fairest. Thou shalt therefore disguise thy selfe in attire, least I should disguise my selfe in affection, in suffering thee to perrish by a fond desire, whom I may preserue by a sure deceipt.
Phil. Deere father, Nature could not make mee so faire as she hath made you kinde, nor you more kinde then me dutifull. What 10 soeuer you commaunde I will not refuse, because you commaund nothing but my safetie, and your happinesse. But howe shall I be disguised?
Meleb. In mans apparell.
Phil. It wil neither become my bodie, nor my minde. 15
Meleb. Why Phillida?
Phil. For then I must keepe companie with boyes, and commit follies vnseemelie for my sexe; or keepe company with girles, and be thought more wanton then becommeth me. Besides, I shall be ashamed of my long hose and short coate, and so vnwarelie blabbe 20 out something by blushing at euery thing.
Meleb. Feare not Phillida, vse will make it easie, feare must make it necessarie.
Phil. I agree, since my father will haue it so, and fortune must.
Meleb. Come let vs in; and when thou art disguised, roame 25 about these woods till the time be past, and Neptune pleased.
〈Enter〉 Mariner, RAFFE, ROBIN, and DICKE.
Robin. Now Mariner, what tallest thou this sport on the Sea?
Mar. It is called a wracke.
Raffe. I take no pleasure in it. Of all deathes I wold not be drownd; ones clothes will be so wet when hee is taken vp.
Diche. What calst thou the thing wee were bounde to? 5
Mar. A raughter.
Raffe. I wyll rather hang my selfe on a raughter in the house, then be so haled in the Sea,--there one may haue a leape for his lyre: but I maruaile howe our Master speedes.
Dicke. Ile warrant by this time he is wetshod. Dyd you euer see 10 water buble as the Sea did? But what shall we doe?
Mar. You are now in Lyncolnshire, where you can want no foule,____________________
