|THOMAS ARDEN, Gentleman, of Feversham.|
|FRANKLIN, his Friend.|
|ALICE, Arden’s Wife.|
|ADAM FOWLE, Landlord of the Flower-de-Luce.|
|CLARKE, a Painter.|
|BRADSHAW, a Goldsmith.|
|MICHAEL, Arden’s Servant.|
|BLACK WILL, Murderer.|
|LORD CHEINY, and his Men.|
|MAYOR OF FEVERSHAM, and Watch.|
|SUSAN, Mosbie’s Sister.|
And thus it is: Here enters ARDEN and FRANKLIN and hears MICHAEL read this letter.
"My duty remembered, Mistress Susan, hoping in God you be in good health, as I Michael was at the making hereof. This is to certify you that as the turtle true, when she hath lost her mate, sitteth alone, so I, mourning for your absence, do walk up and down Paul's till one day I fell asleep and lost my master's pantofles. Ah, Mistress Susan, abolish that paltry painter, cut him off by the shins with a frowning look of your crabbed countenance, and think upon Michael, who, drunk with the dregs of your favour, will cleave as fast to your love as a plaster of pitch to a galled horse-back. Thus hoping you will let my passions pene¬trate, or rather impetrate mercy of your meek hands, I end.
“Yours, Michael, or else not Michael.”
Yours, Richard Greene."
But who is this? the painter, my corrival, that would needs win Mistress Susan.
—-What's his name, I pray you, sir?
