Act V. Scene
Scene II.Before the Walls of Athens.
Enter two Senators and a Messenger.
First Sen. Thou hast painfully discover'd:
are his files
As full as thy report?
Mess. I have spoke the least;
Besides, his expedition promises
Sec. Sen. We stand much hazard if they bring
Mess. I met a courier, one mine ancient
Whom, though in general part we were op-
Yet our old love made a particular force,
And made us speak like friends: this man was
From Alcibiades to Timon's cave,
With letters of entreaty, which imported
His fellowship i' the cause against your city,
In part for his sake mov'd.
First Sen. Here come our brothers.
Enter Senators from TIMON.
Third Sen. No talk of Timon, nothing of him
The enemies' drum is heard, and fearful scour-
Doth choke the air with dust. In, and prepare:
Ours is the fall, I fear; our foes the snare.
