Jump to: the first appearance of besides,_his_expedition_promises




	[Enter two Senators and a Messenger]

First Senator: Thou hast painfully discover'd: are his files
	As full as thy report?

Messenger: have spoke the least:
	Besides, his expedition promises
	Present approach.

Second Senator: We stand much hazard, if they bring not Timon.

Messenger: I met a courier, one mine ancient friend;
	Whom, though in general part we were opposed,
	Yet our old love made a particular force,
	And made us speak like friends: this man was riding
	From Alcibiades to Timon's cave,
	With letters of entreaty, which imported
	His fellowship i' the cause against your city,
	In part for his sake moved.

First Senator: Here come our brothers.

	[Enter the Senators from TIMON]

Third Senator: No talk of Timon, nothing of him expect.
	The enemies' drum is heard, and fearful scouring
	Doth choke the air with dust: in, and prepare:
	Ours is the fall, I fear; our foes the snare.

	[Exeunt]




	TIMON OF ATHENS
