TIMON's servants sent to his false friends to borrow
“ FLAM. ...... An empty box, sir; which, in my lord's behalf, I come to entreat your honour to supply; who, having great and instant occasion to use fifty talents, hath sent to your lordship to furnish him, nothing doubting your present assistance therein.
LUCul. Ha, ha, ha, ha!—nothing doubting, says he ? Alas! good' lord! a noble gentleman ’tis, if he would not keep so good a house,
Thy lord's a bountiful gentleman; but thou art wise ; and thou knowest well enough, although thou comest to me, that this is no time to lend money, especially upon bare friendship, without security.”
Act III. S. 1.
