ACT 3, SCENE 5: The same. Another room.

[Enter ENOBARBUS and EROS, meeting]

ENOBARBUS : How now, friend Eros!

EROS: There's strange news come, sir.

ENOBARBUS : What, man?

EROS: Caesar and Lepidus have made wars upon
Pompey.                                                                                                        [5]

ENOBARBUS : This is old: what is the success?

EROS: Caesar, having made use of him in the wars
'gainst Pompey, presently denied him rivality;
would not let him partake in the glory of the action:
and not resting here, accuses him of letters he had                           [10]
formerly wrote to Pompey; upon his own appeal,
seizes him: so the poor third is up, till death enlarge
his confine.

ENOBARBUS : Then, world, thou hast a pair of chaps, no more;
And throw between them all the food thou hast,                              [15]
They'll grind the one the other. Where's Antony?

EROS: He's walking in the garden--thus; and spurns
The rush that lies before him; cries, 'Fool Lepidus!'
And threats the throat of that his officer
That murder'd Pompey.                                                                           [20]

ENOBARBUS :          Our great navy's rigg'd.

EROS: For Italy and Caesar. More, Domitius;
My lord desires you presently: my news
I might have told hereafter.

ENOBARBUS :           'Twill be naught:
But let it be. Bring me to Antony.

EROS: Come, sir.                                                                                                     [25]
