"Cordelia's tent in the French camp at Dover. Physician. Louder the music there!/ Kent. Kind and dear princess!/ Cordelia. Had you not been their father, these white flakes/ Had challenged pity for them. Was this a face/ To be exposed against the warring winds--/ To stand against the deep broadbolted thunder,/ In the most terrible and nimble stroke/ Of quick cross lightning! To watch (poor Perdu)/ With this thin helm, Mine enemy's dog,/ Tho' he had bit me, should have stood that night/ Against my fire. And wast thou fain, poor father,/ To hovel thee with swine, and rogues forlorn,/ In short and musty straw, Alack! Alack!/ 'Tis wonder that thy life and wits at once/ Had not concluded all." Act IV., Scene 7. [P. 5.]
