ACT I.
SCENE I. Rousillon.
A Room in the Countess's Palace.
Enter BERTRAM, the Countess of Rousillon,

HELENA, and LAFEU, in mourning. Count. In delivering my son from me, I bnry a second husband.

Ber. And I, in going, madam, weep o'er my father's death anew: but I must attend his majesty's command, to whom I am now in ward, evermore in subjection.

Laf. You shall find of the king a husband, madam ;-you, sir, a father : He that so generally is at all times good, must of necessity hold his virtue to you; whose worthiness would stir it up where it wanted, rather than lack it where there is such abundance.

Count. What hope is there of his majesty's amendment ?

Laf. He hath abandoned his physicians, madam; under whose practices he hath persecuted time with hope; and finds no other advantage in the process but only the losing of hope by time,

Count. This young gentlewoman had a father (0, that had! how sad a passage 'tis !) whose skill was almost as great as his honesty ; had it stretched so far, would have made nature im. mortal, and death should have play for lack of work. ''Would, for the king's sake, he were living! I think it would be the death of the king's disease.

Laf. How called you the man you speak of, madam?
