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.

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..
