For so run the conditions, leave those remnants
Of fool and feather that they got in France,
With all their honourable point of ignorance

And understand again like honest men;
Or pack to their old playfellows: there, I take it,
They may, 'cum privilegio,' wear away
The lag end of their lewdness and be laugh'd at.
