Julius Caesar (Folio 1, 1623)


Enter Artemidorus.
1130
sar, beware of Brutus, take heede of Cassius; come not
neere Caska, haue an eye to Cynna, trust not Trebonius, marke
well Metellus Cymber, Decius Brutus loues thee not: Thou
hast wrong'd Caius Ligarius. There is but one minde in all
these men, and it is bent against Cæsar: If thou beest not Im-
1135mortall, looke about you: Security giues way to Conspiracie.
The mighty Gods defend thee.
Thy Louer, Artemidorus.
Heere will I stand, till sar passe along,
And as a Sutor will I giue him this:
1140My heart laments, that Vertue cannot liue
Out of the teeth of Emulation.
If thou reade this, O sar, thou mayest liue;
If not, the Fates with Traitors do contriue.
Exit.
