IULIUS     enemies and ill willers say, and how could they like of his 
CÆSAR     frendes wordes? And who could perswade them otherwise, 
      but that they would thinke his dominion a slaverie unto 
      them, and tirannicall in him selfe? And yet if it be so, 
      sayd he, that you utterly mislike of this day, it is better 
      that you goe your selfe in person, and saluting the Senate, 
Decius Brutus     to dismisse them till an other time. Therewithall he tooke 
brought     Caesar by the hand, and brought him out of his house. 
Caesar into the     Caesar was not gone farre from his house, but a bondman, a 
Senate house.     straunger, did what he could to speake with him: and when 
      he sawe he was put backe by the great prease and multitude 
The tokens of     of people that followed him, he went straight unto his house, 
the conspiracy     and put him selfe into Calpurniaes handes to be kept, till 
against Caesar.     Caesar came backe againe, telling her that he had great 
      matters to imparte unto him. And one Artemidorus also

      him, pressed neerer to him, and sayed: Caesar, reade this 
      memoriall to your selfe, and that quickely, for they be 
      matters of great waight and touche you neerely. Caesar 
      tooke it of him, but coulde never reade it, though he many 
      times attempted it, for the number of people that did salute 
      him: but holding it still in his hande, keeping it to him

      repulsed by the people. For these things, they may seeme 
The place     to come by chaunce: but the place where the murther was 
where Caesar     prepared, and where the Senate were assembled, and where 
was slaine.     also there stoode up an image of Pompey dedicated by him
