thenor and Diomedes.
2375Par. It is great morning, and the houre prefixt
Of her deliuerie to this valiant Greeke
Comes fast vpon: good my brother Troylus,
Tell you the Lady what she is to doe,
And hast her to the purpose.
2380Troy. Walke into her house:
Ile bring her to the Grecian presently;
And to his hand, when I deliuer her,
Thinke it an Altar, and thy brother Troylus
A Priest, there offring to it his heart.
2385Par. I know what 'tis to loue,
And would, as I shall pittie, I could helpe.
Please you walke in, my Lords.
Exeunt.
