SCENE V. Mytilene. A street before the brothel.

[Enter, from the brothel, two Gentlemen.]

FIRST GENTLEMAN.
Did you ever hear the like?

SECOND GENTLEMAN.
No, nor never shall do in such a place as this, she being once
gone.

FIRST GENTLEMAN.
But to have divinity preached there! did you ever dream of such a
thing?

SECOND GENTLEMAN.
No, no. Come, I am for no more bawdy-houses: shall's go hear the
vestals sing?

FIRST GENTLEMAN.
I'll do any thing now that is virtuous; but I am out of the road
of rutting for ever.

[Exeunt.]
