Measure for Measure: Act 4 Scene 6

Scene VI Street near the city gate.

[Enter ISABELLA and MARIANA]

ISABELLA

I would say the truth; but to accuse him so,
That is your part: yet I am advised to do it;

MARIANA

ISABELLA

He speak against me on the adverse side,

That's bitter to sweet end.

MARIANA

ISABELLA
O, peace! the friar is come.

[Enter FRIAR PETER]

FRIAR PETER

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!

[Exeunt]
