    Anthony and Cleopatra (Modern)

    Enter Lepidus, Maecenas, and Agrippa.
    Trouble yourselves no further. Pray you hasten
    Your generals after.
    Sir, Mark Antony
    Will e'en but kiss Octavia, 1015and we'll follow.
    Till I shall see you in your soldier's dress,
    Which will become you both, farewell.
    We shall,
    As I conceive the journey, be at the Mount
    Before you, Lepidus.
    Your way is shorter:
    My purposes do draw me much about.
    You'll win two days upon me.
    Maecenas and Agrippa
    Sir, good success.
    Exeunt [Lepidus at one door, Maecenas and Agrippa at another door].
