Sounds of battle. BRUTUS and MESSALA enter.

BRUTUS

Ride, ride, Messala, ride, and give these billsUnto the legions on the other side.

BRUTUS

Ride, ride, Messala! Ride, and give these written orders to Cassius’ forces on the other side.

Sounds of battle.

BRUTUS

Let them set on at once, for I perceive But cold demeanor in Octavius' wing, And sudden push gives them the overthrow. Ride, ride, Messala. Let them all come down.

BRUTUS

They should attack right now, because Octavius’ forces seem demoralized. A sudden push would defeat them entirely. Ride, ride, Messala. All Cassius’ men should commit to the attack.

They exit in opposite directions.
