    Anthony and Cleopatra (Modern)

    Enter Caesar [and Taurus], with his army, marching.
    My lord.
    Strike not by land, keep whole;
    Provoke not battle 1965till we have done at sea.
    [He gives Taurus a scroll.]
    Do not exceed the prescript of this scroll.
    Our fortune lies upon this jump.
    Exit [Caesar and his army at one door, and Taurus at another door].
