     determined to make warre with the Parthians: but when heMARCUS
     heard the newes of his death, he returned againe to Rome,  BRUTUS
     where to begin to curry favor with the common people,
     he first of all tooke upon him his adopted fathers name,
     and made distribution amonge them of the money which
     his father had bequeathed unto them. By this meanes he
     troubled Antonius sorely, and by force of money, got a
     great number of his fathers souldiers together, that had
     served in the warres with him. And Cicero him selfe, for
     the great malice he bare Antonius, did favor his proceedings.
     But Brutus marvelously reproved him for it, and wrote untoBrutus
     him, that he seemed by his doinges not to be sory to have areproved
     Maister, but onely to be affrayd to have one that shouldCicero, for
     hate him: and that all his doinges in the common wealth didtaking part
     witnesse, that he chose to be subject to a milde and curteouswith Octavius
     bondage, sith by his words and writings he did commendCaesar.
     this young man Octavius Caesar, to be a good and gentle
     Lorde. For our predecessors sayde he, would never abyde to
     be subject to any Maisters, how gentle or mild soever they
     were: and for his owne part that he had never resolutely
     determined with him selfe to make warre, or peace, but other-
     wise, that he was certenly minded never to be slave nor sub-
     ject. And therefore he wondred much at him, how Cicero
     coulde be affrayd of the daunger of civill warres, and would
     not be affrayd of a shameful peace: and that to thrust
     Antonius out of the usurped tyranny, in recompence he
     went about to stablishe younge Octavius Caesar tyranne.
     These were the contents of Brutus first letters he wrote
     unto Cicero. Now, the citie of Rome being devided in two
     factions, some taking part with Antonius, other also leaning
     unto Octavius Caesar, and the souldiers making port sale of
     their service to him that would give most: Brutus seeing the
     state of Rome would be utterly overthrowen, he determinedPorciaes
     to goe out of Italy, and went a foote through the contry ofsorowfull re-
     Luke, unto the citie of Elea, standing by the sea. Thereturne to Rome
     Porcia being ready to depart from her husband Brutus, andfor the
     to returne to Rome, did what she could to dissemble theabsence of
     griefe and sorow she felt at her hart: but a certaine payntedher husband
     table bewrayed her in the ende, although untill that timeBrutus.
