    Julius Caesar (Modern)

    Alarum. Enter Brutus and Messala.
    Brutus Ride, ride, Messala! Ride, and give these bills
    Unto the legions, on the other side.
    Loud alarum.
    Let them set on at once, for I perceive
    2475But cold demeanor in Octavio's wing,
    And sudden push gives them the overthrow.
    Ride, ride, Messala! Let them all come down.
