	[Enter two Soldiers to their guard]

First Soldier: Brother, good night: to-morrow is the day.

Second Soldier: It will determine one way: fare you well.
	Heard you of nothing strange about the streets?

First Soldier: Nothing. What news?

Second Soldier: Belike 'tis but a rumour. Good night to you.

First Soldier: Well, sir, good night.

	[Enter two other Soldiers]

Second Soldier: Soldiers, have careful watch.

Third Soldier: And you. Good night, good night.

	[They place themselves in every corner of the stage]

Fourth Soldier: Here we: and if to-morrow
	Our navy thrive, I have an absolute hope
	Our landmen will stand up.

Third Soldier: 'Tis a brave army,
	And full of purpose.

	[Music of the hautboys as under the stage]

Fourth Soldier: Peace! what noise?

First Soldier: List, list!

Second Soldier: Hark!

First Soldier:     Music i' the air.

Third Soldier: Under the earth.

Fourth Soldier: It signs well, does it not?

Third Soldier: No.

First Soldier: Peace, I say!
	What should this mean?

Second Soldier: 'Tis the god Hercules, whom Antony loved,
	Now leaves him.

First Soldier: Walk; let's see if other watchmen
	Do hear what we do?

	[They advance to another post]

Second Soldier: How now, masters!

All: [Speaking together]  How now!
	How now! do you hear this?

First Soldier: Ay; is't not strange?

Third Soldier: Do you hear, masters? do you hear?

First Soldier: Follow the noise so far as we have quarter;
	Let's see how it will give off.

All: Content. 'Tis strange.

	[Exeunt]
