    Anthony and Cleopatra (Modern)

    Enter Antony and Scarrus, with their army.
    Their preparation is today by sea.
    We please them not by land.
    For both, my lord.
    I would they'd fight i'th'fire or i'th'air--
    We'd fight there too. But this it is: our foot
    Upon the hills adjoining to the city
    Shall stay with us--order for sea is given,
    They have put forth the haven--
    2745Where their appointment we may best discover,
    And look on their endeavor.
