Who is this duke who's coming so secretly? I didn't hear anything about him at court. Let me speak with the gentlemen. Do they speak English?
Ay, sir; I'll call them to you.
Yes, sir. I'll call them in to see you.
They shall have my horses; but I'll make them pay; I'll sauce them: they have had my house a week at command; I have turned away my other guests: they must come off; I'll sauce them. Come.
They can have my horses, but I'll make them pay, I'll make them pay a lot. They've taken over my house for the last week so that I had to turn away other guests. They need to pay up—I'll make them pay a lot. Let's go.
