Our Cæsar's vesture wounded ? Look you here,

I think, it is the weakness of mine eyes,
That shapes this monstrous apparition.
It comes upon me:-Art thou any thing ?
Art thou some god, some angel, or some devil,
That mak’st my blood cold, and my hạir to stare ?
Speak to me, what thou art.
Ghost. Thy evil spirit, Brutus.

Bru. Well;
Then I shall see thee again?

Ay, at Philippi.” (Vanishes.)

Thy spirit walks abroad, and turns our swords
In our own proper entrails.

Thou art a fellow of a good respect;
Thy life hath had some smatch of honour in it:
Hold then my sword, and turn away thy face,
While I do run upon it.

I kill'd not thee with half so good a will. Act V. S. 5.

Look whe'r he have not crown'd dead Cassius !"
