  1. #1
    “O, death’s a great disguiser, and you
    may add to it. Shave the head, and tie the beard, and
    say it was the desire of the penitent to be so bared
    before his death. You know the course is common.”
  2. #2
    “we shall advise this wronged maid
    to stead up your appointment, go in your place. If
    the encounter acknowledge itself hereafter, it may
    compel him to her recompense; and here, by this, is
    your brother saved, your honor untainted, the poor
    Mariana advantaged, and the corrupt deputy
    scaled. The maid will I frame and make fit for his
    attempt. If you think well to carry this as you may,
    the doubleness of the benefit defends the deceit
    from reproof. What think you of it? ”

    “If he be like your brother, for his sake
