PROPERTY OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK. ALL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELL ACT I.
Scene I. Bousillon. The Count's palace. Enter Bertram, the Countess
Of Rousillon, Helena, and Lafeu, all in black. Count. In delivering
my son from me, I bury a second husband. Ber. And I in going,
madam, weep o'er my father's death anew; but I must attend his
