	[Enter DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS and EROS, meeting]

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: How now, friend Eros!

EROS: There's strange news come, sir.

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: What, man?

EROS: Caesar and Lepidus have made wars upon Pompey.

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: This is old: what is the success?

EROS: Caesar, having made use of him in the wars 'gainst
	Pompey, presently denied him rivality; would not let
	him partake in the glory of the action: and not
	resting here, accuses him of letters he had formerly
	wrote to Pompey; upon his own appeal, seizes him: so
	the poor third is up, till death enlarge his confine.

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: Then, world, thou hast a pair of chaps, no more;
	And throw between them all the food thou hast,
	They'll grind the one the other. Where's Antony?

EROS: He's walking in the garden--thus; and spurns
	The rush that lies before him; cries, 'Fool Lepidus!'
	And threats the throat of that his officer
	That murder'd Pompey.

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: Our great navy's rigg'd.

EROS: For Italy and Caesar. More, Domitius;
	My lord desires you presently: my news
	I might have told hereafter.

DOMITIUS ENOBARBUS: 'Twill be naught:
	But let it be. Bring me to Antony.

EROS: Come, sir.

	[Exeunt]
