Dro. E. And I with him.

Duke Menaphon, your most renowned uncle.

That kitchen'd me for you to-day at dinner;
Dro. E. Methinks, you are my glass, and not my brother:
I see by you, I am a sweet-faced youth.
Dro. S. Not I, sir; you are my elder.
Dro. E. That's a question: how shall we try it? Dro. S. We will draw cuts for the senior: till then, lead thou first.
Dro. E. Nay, then thus:
We came into the world, like brother and brother; And now let's go hand in hand, not one before another.
