Scene VI.

[To them] JEREMY.

SIR SAMPSON LEGEND
How now, who sent for you? Ha! What would you have?

FORESIGHT
Nay, if you were but in jest--who's that fellow? I don't like his physiognomy.

SIR SAMPSON LEGEND
My son, sir; what son, sir? My son Benjamin, hoh?

JEREMY
No, sir, Mr Valentine, my master; 'tis the first time he has been abroad since his confinement, and he comes to pay his duty to you.

SIR SAMPSON LEGEND
Well, sir.

William Congreve
