2019 Things have fallen out, sir, so unluckily
2020 That we have had no time to move our daughter.
2021 Look you, she loved her kinsman Tybalt dearly,
2022 And so did I. Well, we were born to die.
2023 5 ’Tis very late. She’ll not come down tonight.
2024 I promise you, but for your company,
2025 I would have been abed an hour ago.
2026 These times of woe afford no times to woo.—
2027 Madam, good night. Commend me to your
2028 10 daughter.
2029 I will, and know her mind early tomorrow.
2030 Tonight she’s mewed up to her heaviness.
2031 Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender
2032 Of my child’s love. I think she will ⌜be⌝ ruled
p. 1552033 15 In all respects by me. Nay, more, I doubt it not.—
2034 Wife, go you to her ere you go to bed.
2035 Acquaint her here of my son Paris’ love,
2036 And bid her—mark you me?—on Wednesday
2038 20 But soft, what day is this?
PARIS 2039 Monday, my lord.
2040 Monday, ha ha! Well, Wednesday is too soon.
2041 O’ Thursday let it be.—O’ Thursday, tell her,
2042 She shall be married to this noble earl.—
2043 25 Will you be ready? Do you like this haste?
2044 ⌜We’ll⌝ keep no great ado: a friend or two.
2045 For hark you, Tybalt being slain so late,
2046 It may be thought we held him carelessly,
2047 Being our kinsman, if we revel much.
2048 30 Therefore we’ll have some half a dozen friends,
2049 And there an end. But what say you to Thursday?
2050 My lord, I would that Thursday were tomorrow.
2051 Well, get you gone. O’ Thursday be it, then.
2052 ⌜To Lady Capulet.⌝ Go you to Juliet ere you go to bed.
2053 35 Prepare her, wife, against this wedding day.—
2054 Farewell, my lord.—Light to my chamber, ho!—
2055 Afore me, it is so very late that we
2056 May call it early by and by.—Good night.
