ACT 3, SCENE 1: A room in the palace.


DUKE FREDERICK: Not see him since? Sir, sir, that cannot be:
But were I not the better part made mercy,
I should not seek an absent argument
Of my revenge, thou present. But look to it:
Find out thy brother, wheresoe'er he is;                                               [5]
Seek him with candle; bring him dead or living
Within this twelvemonth, or turn thou no more
To seek a living in our territory.
Thy lands and all things that thou dost call thine
Worth seizure do we seize into our hands,                                         [10]
Till thou canst quit thee by thy brothers mouth
Of what we think against thee.

OLIVER: O that your highness knew my heart in this!
I never loved my brother in my life.

DUKE FREDERICK: More villain thou. Well, push him out of doors;             [15]
And let my officers of such a nature
Make an extent upon his house and lands:
Do this expediently and turn him going.
