As You Like It: Act 2, Scene 2
Enter DUKE [FREDERICK], with Lords.
1Can it be possible that no man saw them?
2It cannot be: some villains of my court
3Are of consent and sufferance in this.
4I cannot hear of any that did see her.
5The ladies, her attendants of her chamber,
6Saw her abed, and in the morning early
7They found the bed untreasured of their mistress.
8My lord, the roynish clown, at whom so oft
9Your grace was wont to laugh, is also missing.
10Hisperia, the princess' gentlewoman,
11Confesses that she secretly o'erheard
12Your daughter and her cousin much commend
13The parts and graces of the wrestler
14That did but lately foil the sinewy Charles;
15And she believes, wherever they are gone,
16That youth is surely in their company.
17Send to his brother; fetch that gallant hither;
18If he be absent, bring his brother to me;
19I'll make him find him: do this suddenly,
20And let not search and inquisition quail
21To bring again these foolish runaways.
