Adr. I see two husbands, or mine eyes deceive me. Duke. One of these men is Genius to the other; And so of these. Which is the natural man, And which the spirit? Who deciphers them? Dro. S. I, sir, am Dromio; command him away. Dro. E. I, sir, am Dromio; pray, let me stay. Ant. S. Ægeon, art thou not, or else his ghost? Dro. S. O, my old master! who hath bound him here?
Abb. Whoever bound him, I will loose his bonds, And gain a husband by his liberty.
Speak, old Ægeon, if thou be'st the man
Egeon. If I dream not, thou art Æmilia.
Abb. By men of Epidamnum, he, and I,
I, to this fortune that you see me in.
Duke. Why, here begins his morning story right: 1
The morning story is what Egeon tells the Duke in the first scene of this play.
These two Antipholuses, these two so like,
Ant. S. No, sir, not I; I came from Syracuse. Duke. Stay, stand apart; I know not which is which.
Ant. E. I came from Corinth, my most gracious
Dro. E. And I with him.
Ant. E. Brought to this town by that most famous warrior,
Duke Menaphon, your most renowned uncle.
Adr. Which of you two did dine with me to-day? Ant. S. I, gentle mistress.
And are not you my husband?
Ant. E. No, I say nay to that.
Ant. S. And so do I : yet did she call me so;
And this fair gentlewoman, her sister here,
I hope, I shall have leisure to make good,
If this be not a dream I see and hear.
Ang. That is the chain, sir, which you had of me. Ant. S. I think it be, sir; I deny it not.
Ant. E. And you, sir, for this chain arrested me. Ang. I think I did, sir; I deny it not.
Adr. I sent you money, sir, to be your bail, By Dromio; but I think he brought it not. Dro. E. No, none by me.
