  1. Ay, forsooth, I have spoke with her, and we have a nay-word
  2. how to know one another. I come to her in white, and cry
  3. mum”; she cries budget”; and by that we know one another.

  1. That’s good too; but what needs either your mum or her
  2. budget”? The white will decipher her well enough. It hath
  3. struck ten a’ clock.

  1. The night is dark, light and spirits will become it well.
  2. Heaven prosper our sport! No man means evil but the devil,
  3. and we shall know him by his horns. Let’s away; follow me.
