Thou liv'st, report me and my cause aright
To the unsatisfied.

Hor. Never; believe it:
I'm more an antique Roman than a Dane;
Here's yet some liquor left:

Ham. As th' art a man,
Give me the cup; let go; by heav'n, I'll have't.
Oh good Horatio, what a wounded name,
Things standing thus unknown, shall live behind me?
If thou didst ever hold me in thy heart,
Absent thee from selicity a while,
And in this harsh world draw thy breath in pain,
To tell my tale. [March afar off, and Jhout within.
"What warlike noise is this?

SCENE VI.
Enter Osrick.

Osr. Young Fortinbras, with conquest come from Poland,
To the * 'ambassadorN of England gives
This warlike volley.

Ham. O, I die, Horatio: The potent poison quite o'er-grows my spirit, I cannot live to hear the news from England. But I do prophesie th' election lights On Fortinbras; he has my dying voice; So tell him, with th' occurrents more or less, Which have solicited.——The rest is silence. [Dies.

Hor. Now cracks a noble heart; good-night, sweet.
Prince;

And flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest!
Why does the drum come hither?

Enter Fortinbras and English Ambassador, with drum, colours, and Attendants.

Fort. Where is this fight?

Hor. What is it you would see?

Vol. VI. Ee If

2 ambassadors

If aught of woe or wonder, cease your search.

Fort.This quarry cries 5 'out, havock !NOh proud death!
What seast is tow'rd in thine eternal cell,
That thou so many Princes at a shot
So bloodily hast struck ?.

Amb. The fight is dismal,
And our affairs from England come too late;
The ears are senseless that should give us hearing.
To tell him his commandment is sulfilled,
That Rostncrojse and Guildenstcrn are dead,
Where should we have our thanks?

Hor. Not from his mouth,
Had it th' ability of lise to thank you:
He never gave commandment for their death.
But since so sull upon this bloody question,
You from the Polack wars, and you from England,
Are here arriv'd; give order that these bodies
High on a stage be placed to the view,
And let me speak to th' yet unknowing world,
How these things came about. So shall you hear
Of cruel, bloody, and unnatural acts,
Of accidental judgments, casual slaughters,
Of deaths put on by cunning, and forc'd cause,
And in this upshot, purposes mistook
Fall'n on th' inventors heads. All this can I
Truly deliver.

Fort. Let us haste to hear it,
And call the noblest to the audience.
For me, with sorrow I embrace my fortune,
I have some rights of memory in this kingdom,
Which now to claim, my vantage doth invite me.

Hor. Of that I shall have also cause to speak,
And from his mouth whose voice will draw on more:
But let this fame be presently perform'd,
Ev'n while men's minds are wild, lest more mischance
On plots and errors happen.

Fort. Let four captains

Bear

3 on havock!

Bear Hamlet like a soldier to the stage,

For he was likely, had he been put on, ,

To have prov'd most royally. And for his pasiage,

The soldiers mufick, and the rites of war,

Speak loudly for him!'

Take up the body: such a fight as this

Becomes the field; but here lhews much amiss.

Go, bid the soldiers shoot.

[Exeunt marching: aster which, a peal of ordnance is
Jhot off.
