    3220And in wearing, thou shalt haue me better and better.
    Thou shalt haue a face that is not worth sun-burning.
    3136.1But doost thou thinke, that thou and I,
    Betweene Saint Denis,
    3195And Saint George, shall get a boy,
    That shall goe to Constantinople,
    And take the great Turke by the beard, ha Kate?
    Kate. Is it possible dat me sall
    Loue de enemie de France.
    3160Harry. No Kate, tis vnpossible
    You should loue the enemie of France:
    For Kate, I loue France so well,
    That Ile not leaue a Village,
    Ile haue it all mine: then Kate,
    When France is mine,
    And I am yours,
    Then France is yours,
    3165And you are mine.

    Why Ile tell it you in French.

    On her new married Husband.
    Let me see, Saint Dennis be my speed.
