Enter Paris, Troyl. AEneas, Deiphob, Anth. Diomedes.
2375Par. It is great morning, and the houre prefixt,
For her deliuery to this valiant Greeke,
Comes fast vpon: good my brother Troylus
of Troylus and Cresseida.
Tell you the Lady what she is to doe,
And hast her to the purpose.
2380Troy. Walke into her house,
Ile bring her to the Grecian presently:
And to his hand when I deliuer her,
Thinke it an altar, and thy brother Troylus
A priest there offring to it his owne heart.
2385Paris. I know what tis to loue,
And would, as I shall pitty I could helpe:
Please you walke in my Lords? Exeunt.
