hither (Which I can call but now) I have heard strange news.
Reg. If it be true, all vengeance comes too short, Which can pursue the offender. How dost, my lord ?
Glo. O madam, my old heart is cracked, is cracked !
Reg. What, did my father's godson seek your life? He whom my father named ? your Edgar?
Glo. O lady, lady, shame would have it hid !

SCENE II. Before Gloster's Castle.
Enter KENT and Steward, severally. Stew. Good dawning 3 to thee, friend. Art of the house?
Kent. If I had thee in Lipsbury pinfold,4 I would make thee care for me.
Stew. Why dost thou use me thus ? I know thee not.
Kent. Fellow, I know thee.

4 i. e. Lipsbury pound." Lipsbury pinfold” may, perhaps, like Lob's pound, be a coined name; but with what allusion does not appear.
Stew. What dost thou know me for?
Kent. A knave, a rascal, an eater of broken meats; a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited, hundredpound, filthy worsted-stocking knave; a lily-livered, action-taking knave; a whoreson, glass-gazing, superserviceable, finical rogue; one-trunk-inheriting slave ; one that wouldst be a bawd, in way of good-service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pander, and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch; one whom I will beat into clamorous whining, if thou deniest the least syllable of thy addition.
Stew. Why, what a monstrous fellow art thou, thus to rail on one that is neither known of thee, nor knows thee!
Kent. What a brazen-faced varlet art thou, to deny thou knowest me! Is it two days ago, since I tripped up thy heels, and beat thee, before the king ? Draw, you rogue; for, though it be night, the moon shines; Í'll make a sop o' the moonshine" of you. Draw, you whoreson cullionly barber-monger, draw.
[Drawing his sword Stew. Away; I have nothing to do with thee.
Kent. Draw, you rascal! you come with letters against the king; and take Vanity 4 the puppet's part, against the royalty of her father. Draw, you rogue, or I'll so carbonado your shanks.--Draw, you rascal; come your ways.
Stew. Help, ho! murder! help!
Kent. Strike, you slave; stand, rogue, stand; you neat slave,5 strike.
[Beating him. Stew. Help, ho! murder! murder!

Enter EDMUND, CORNWALL, REGAN, GLOSTER, and
Edm. How now ? what's the matter? Part.
Kent. With you goodman boy, if you please ; come, I'll flesh you ; come on, young master.
Glo. Weapons! arms! What's the matter here?
Corn. Keep peace, upon your lives
Reg. The messengers from our sister and the king.
Kent. No marvel, you have so bestirred your valor. You cowardly rascal, nature disclaims in thee; a tailor made thee.
Corn. Thou art a strange fellow; a tailor make a
Kent. Ay, a tailor, sir ; a stone-cutter, or a painter, could not have made him so ill, though they had been but two hours at the trade.
Corn. Speak yet, how grew your quarrel ?
Kent. Thou whoreson zed ! thou unnecessary letter !--My lord, if you will give me leave, I will tread this unbolted 3 villain into mortar, and daub the wall of a jakes with him.---Spare my gray beard, you wagtail ?
Corn. Peace, sirrah!
Kent. Yes, sir ; but anger has a privilege.
1 To disclaim in, for to disclaim simply, was the phraseology of the Poet's age. See Gifford's Ben Jonson, vol. iii. p. 264.
2 Zed is here used as a term of contempt, because it is the last letter in the English alphabet. Baret omits it in his Alvearie, affirming it to be rather a syllable than a letter. And Mulcaster says, “ Z is much harder amongst us, and seldom seen. S is become its lieutenant-general."
3 Coarse villain. Unbolted mortar is mortar made of unsifted lime and therefore to break the lumps, it is necessary to tread it by men in wooden shoes.
