[Trumpets sound. Enter MARK ANTONY and EROS; a
Soldier meeting them]
Soldier: The gods make this a happy day to Antony!
MARK ANTONY: Would thou and those thy scars had once prevail'd
To make me fight at land!
Soldier: Hadst thou done so,
The kings that have revolted, and the soldier
That has this morning left thee, would have still
Follow'd thy heels.
MARK ANTONY: Who's gone this morning?
One ever near thee: call for Enobarbus,
He shall not hear thee; or from Caesar's camp
Say 'I am none of thine.'
MARK ANTONY: What say'st thou?
He is with Caesar.
EROS: Sir, his chests and treasure
He has not with him.
MARK ANTONY: Is he gone?
Soldier: Most certain.
MARK ANTONY: Go, Eros, send his treasure after; do it;
Detain no jot, I charge thee: write to him--
I will subscribe--gentle adieus and greetings;
Say that I wish he never find more cause
To change a master. O, my fortunes have
Corrupted honest men! Dispatch.--Enobarbus!
ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA
