Trumpets sound. Enter MARK
ANTONY and EROS; a
|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?|
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?|
He is with Caesar.
|EROS||Sir, his chests and treasure
He has not with him.
|MARK ANTONY||Is he gone?|
|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!
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.|
|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]|
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
|[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]|
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.
|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.
