1818 Excerpt: ...one of you, chop off your hand, And send it to the
king: he for the same, Will send thee hither both thy sons alive;
And that shall be the ransome for their fault. Tit. O, gracious
emperor O, gentle Aaron Did ever raven sing so like a lark, That
gives sweet tidings of the sun's uprise? With all my heart, I 'll
send the emperor My hand: Good Aaron, wilt thou help to chop it
off? Luc. Stay, father; for that noble hand of thine, That hath
thrown down so many enemies, Shall not be sent: my hand will serve
the turn: My youth can better spare my blood than you; And
therefore mine shall save my brother's lives. 1 Know. Handkerchief.
Marc. Which of your hands hath not' defended Rome, And rear'd aloft
the bloody battle-axe, Writing destruction on the enemy's castle?
0, none of both but are of high desert: My hand hath been but idle;
let it serve To ransome my two nephews from their death; Then have
1 kept it to a worthy end. Aar. Nay, come agree, whose hand shall
go along, For fear they die before their pardon come. Marc. My hand
shall go. Luc., By heaven, it shall not go. Tit. Sirs, strive no
more; such wither'd herbs as these Are meet for plucking up, and
therefore mine. Luc. Sweet father, if I shall be thought thy son,
.Let me redeem my brothers both from death. Marc. And, for our
father's sake, and mother's care, Now let me show a brother's love
to thee. Tit. Agree between you; I will spare my hand. Luc. Then I
'll go fetch an axe. Marc. But I will use the axe. Exeunt Lucius
and Marcus. Tit. Come hither, Aaron; I'll deceive them both; Lend
me thy hand, and I will give thee mine. Aar. If that be call'd
deceit, I will be honest, And never, whilst I live, deceive men so:
--But I 'U deceive you in another sort, And that you 'll say, ere
half an hour can pass. Aside..
