LEPIDUS, MAECENAS, and AGRIPPA enter.


LEPIDUS
Trouble yourselves no further. Pray you, hasten
Your generals after.
LEPIDUS
Don’t spend any more time here. Go tell your generals to hurry their preparations.


AGRIPPA
                                       Sir, Mark Antony
Will e’en but kiss Octavia, and we’ll follow.
AGRIPPA
Sir, we’ll follow as soon as Mark Antony kisses Octavia good-bye.

LEPIDUS
Till I shall see you in your soldiers’ dress,
Which will become you both, farewell.
LEPIDUS
Good-bye then, until the time I see you dressed in your battle gear, which will suit you both very well.



MAECENAS
                                                                             We shall,
As I conceive the journey, be at the Mount
Before you, Lepidus.
MAECENAS
According to my reckoning, we’ll get to Mt. Misena before you, Lepidus.



LEPIDUS
                                          Your way is shorter.
My purposes do draw me much about.
You’ll win two days upon me.
LEPIDUS
You’re taking a shorter route. My plans take me a roundabout way. You’ll get there two days before me.

MAECENAS, AGRIPPA
                                                         Sir, good success.
BOTH
Good luck, sir.
