CÆSAR     swords in his face, and was hacked and mangeled amonge 
      them, as a wilde beaste taken of hunters. For it was agreed 
      among them, that every man should geve him a wound, 
      bicause all their partes should be in this murther: and then 
      Brutus him selfe gave him one wounde about his privities. 
      Men reporte also, that Caesar did still defende him selfe 
      against the rest, running everie waye with his bodie: but 
      when he sawe Brutus with his sworde drawen in his hande, 
      then he pulled his gowne over his heade, and made no 
      more resistaunce, and was driven either casually, or purposedly, 
      by the counsell of the conspirators, against the base where-

      touching this fact) presently ran out of the house, and 
      flying, filled all the city with marvelous feare and tumult. 
      Insomuch as some did shut to their dores, others forsooke 
      their shops and warehouses, and others ranne to the place to 
      see what the matter was: and others also that had seene it, 
      ran home to their houses againe. But Antonius and Lepidus, 
      which were two of Cesars chiefest frends, secretly conveying 
      them selves away, fled into other mens houses, and forsooke 
The mur-     their owne. Brutus and his confederats on thother side, 
therers of     being yet hotte with this murther they had committed,
