Measure for Measure
SCENE VI. Street near the city gate.
Enter ISABELLA and MARIANA
To speak so indirectly I am loath:
I would say the truth; but to accuse him so,
That is your part: yet I am advised to do it;

I should not think it strange; for 'tis a physic
That's bitter to sweet end.

O, peace! the friar is come.
Enter FRIAR PETER
Come, I have found you out a stand most fit,
Where you may have such vantage on the duke,
He shall not pass you. Twice have the trumpets sounded;
The generous and gravest citizens
Have hent the gates, and very near upon
The duke is entering: therefore, hence, away!
