Act IV, Scene 5 Alexandria. MARK ANTONY's camp.

Trumpets sound. Enter MARK ANTONY and EROS; a
Soldier meeting them

 

Soldier The gods make this a happy day to Antony!
MARK ANTONY Would thou and those thy scars had once prevail'd
To make me fight at land!
Soldier Hadst thou done so,
The kings that have revolted, and the soldier
That has this morning left thee, would have still
Follow'd thy heels.
MARK ANTONY Who's gone this morning?
Soldier Who!
One ever near thee: call for Enobarbus,
He shall not hear thee; or from Caesar's camp
Say 'I am none of thine.'
MARK ANTONY What say'st thou?
Soldier Sir,
He is with Caesar.
EROS Sir, his chests and treasure
He has not with him.
MARK ANTONY Is he gone?
Soldier Most certain.
MARK ANTONY Go, Eros, send his treasure after; do it;
Detain no jot, I charge thee: write to him--
I will subscribe--gentle adieus and greetings;
Say that I wish he never find more cause
To change a master. O, my fortunes have
Corrupted honest men! Dispatch.--Enobarbus!
  [Exeunt]

 

Act IV, Scene 6 Alexandria. OCTAVIUS CAESAR's camp.

Flourish. Enter OCTAVIUS CAESAR, AGRIPPA, with
DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS, and others

 

OCTAVIUS CAESAR Go forth, Agrippa, and begin the fight:
Our will is Antony be took alive;
Make it so known.
AGRIPPA Caesar, I shall.
  [Exit]
OCTAVIUS CAESAR The time of universal peace is near:
Prove this a prosperous day, the three-nook'd world
Shall bear the olive freely.
  [Enter a Messenger]
Messenger Antony
Is come into the field.
OCTAVIUS CAESAR Go charge Agrippa
Plant those that have revolted in the van,
That Antony may seem to spend his fury
Upon himself.
  [Exeunt all but DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS]
DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS Alexas did revolt; and went to Jewry on
Affairs of Antony; there did persuade
Great Herod to incline himself to Caesar,
And leave his master Antony: for this pains
Caesar hath hang'd him. Canidius and the rest
That fell away have entertainment, but
No honourable trust. I have done ill;
Of which I do accuse myself so sorely,
That I will joy no more.
  [Enter a Soldier of CAESAR's]
Soldier Enobarbus, Antony
Hath after thee sent all thy treasure, with
His bounty overplus: the messenger
Came on my guard; and at thy tent is now
Unloading of his mules.
DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS I give it you.
Soldier Mock not, Enobarbus.
I tell you true: best you safed the bringer
Out of the host; I must attend mine office,
Or would have done't myself. Your emperor
Continues still a Jove.
  [Exit]
DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS I am alone the villain of the earth,
And feel I am so most. O Antony,
Thou mine of bounty, how wouldst thou have paid
My better service, when my turpitude
Thou dost so crown with gold! This blows my heart:
If swift thought break it not, a swifter mean
Shall outstrike thought: but thought will do't, I feel.
I fight against thee! No: I will go seek
Some ditch wherein to die; the foul'st best fits
My latter part of life.
  [Exit]
