  • I think 'twas Soto that your honour means.
  • Lord. With all my heart. This fellow I remember
    Since once he play'd a farmer's eldest son;
    'Twas where you woo'd the gentlewoman so well.

    Was aptly fitted and naturally perform'd.

    Player. I think 'twas Soto that your honour means.

  • Fear not, my lord; we can contain ourselves,
    Were he the veriest antic in the world.
  • Lord. 'Tis very true; thou didst it excellent.
    Well, you are come to me in happy time,
    The rather for I have some sport in hand

    There is a lord will hear you play to-night;
    But I am doubtful of your modesties,
    Lest, over-eying of his odd behaviour,
    For yet his honour never heard a play,

    And so offend him; for I tell you, sirs,
    If you should smile, he grows impatient.

    Player. Fear not, my lord; we can contain ourselves,
    Were he the veriest antic in the world.
