	[Enter PROTEUS and JULIA]

PROTEUS: Have patience, gentle Julia.

JULIA: I must, where is no remedy.

PROTEUS: When possibly I can, I will return.

JULIA: If you turn not, you will return the sooner.
	Keep this remembrance for thy Julia's sake.

	[Giving a ring]

PROTEUS: Why then, we'll make exchange; here, take you this.

JULIA: And seal the bargain with a holy kiss.

PROTEUS: Here is my hand for my true constancy;
	And when that hour o'erslips me in the day
	Wherein I sigh not, Julia, for thy sake,
	The next ensuing hour some foul mischance
	Torment me for my love's forgetfulness!
	My father stays my coming; answer not;
	The tide is now: nay, not thy tide of tears;
	That tide will stay me longer than I should.
	Julia, farewell!

	[Exit JULIA]

	What, gone without a word?
	Ay, so true love should do: it cannot speak;
	For truth hath better deeds than words to grace it.

	[Enter PANTHINO]

PANTHINO: Sir Proteus, you are stay'd for.

PROTEUS: Go; I come, I come.
	Alas! this parting strikes poor lovers dumb.

	[Exeunt]
