Act I. Scene II.

Scene II.—The Same.

Enter SIR HUGH EVANS and SIMPLE.

Eva. Go your ways, and ask of Doctor Caius'
house, which is the way: and there dwells one
Mistress Quickly, which is in the manner of his
nurse, or his try nurse, or his cook, or his laun-
dry, his washer, and his wringer.
Sim. Well, sir.
Eva. Nay, it is potter yet. Give her this let-
ter; for it is a 'oman that altogether's ac-
quaintance with Mistress Anne Page: and the
letter is, to desire and require her to solicit your
master's desires to Mistress Anne Page. I pray
you, be gone: I will make an end of my
dinner; there's pippins and seese to come.
[Exeunt.
