Anne. Wil't please your worship to walk in, sir?/ Slender. No, I thank you forsooth, heartily: I am very well./ Anne. The dinner attends you, sir./ Slender. I am not a-hungry, thank you forsooth: go,/ Sirrah, for all you are my man, go, wait upon my/ Cousin Shallow. (Exit Simple.) A justice of the peace/ Sometimes may be beholden to his friend for a man: I/ Keep but three men and a boy yet, till my mother be dead./ But what though* Yet I live like a poor gentleman born./ Anne. I may not go in without your worship. They will not/ Sit, 'till you come./ Slender. I' faith I'll eat nothing. I thank you as much as though I did./ Anne. I pray you, Sir, walk in./ Slender. I had rather walk here, I thank you.--Merry Wives of Windsor. [P. 14.]
