Act IV Scene II


Sir, we beg you

To help us all you can in her behalf;

She’s suffering almost more than heart can bear;

This match her father means to make to-night

Drives her each moment to despair. He’s coming.

Let us unite our efforts now, we beg you,

And try by strength or skill to change his purpose.
