Hamlet (Modern, Folio)


[4.4]
Enter Fortinbras [and a Captain] with an army.
2735Fortinbras Go, captain, from me greet the Danish King.
Tell him that by his license Fortinbras
Claims the conveyance of a promised march
Over his kingdom. You know the rendezvous.
If that his majesty would aught with us,
2740We shall express our duty in his eye;
And let him know so.
Captain I will do't, my lord.
Fortinbras [To his soldiers] Go softly on.
Exit [with all the rest].
