Excerpt: ... I hear your voices, men of crime and blood, Ring in mine ears, and I obey the call. (Snatches a sword from the wall.) How precious is the blade which justice wields, To chasten wrong, or set a wrong to right (Draws.) Come forth, thou minister of bloody deeds, That blazed a comet in the van of war, Presaging death to man, and tears to earth.--Pale, gleaming tempter, when I clutch thee thus, Thou, of thyself, dost plead that murder's right, And mak'st me half believe it luxury.

Now if I drank at this same scurvy feast, As we of old could drink without a thought, The weak-brained boys would point their silly thumbs, And ask their host, if there the devil dined? Plague on these times Give me the jolly days When men held mighty flagons in one hand, And with the other grasped their mightier swords--None of your toasting-forks; a true Toledo, Edged at each side, and pointed like a spear; Why bah these boys could scarcely lift such blades: Those were the glorious days ...
