MRS. CHEVELEY. Thanks. [The butler hands MRS. CHEVELEY a cup of tea

|The second excerpt represents the present or the deciding factor of the moment, and is drawn from Macbeth by William Shakespeare:
Banq. Good Sir, why doe you start, and seeme to feare
Things that doe sound so faire? i'th' name of truth
Are ye fantasticall, or that indeed

You greet with present Grace, and great prediction
Of Noble hauing, and of Royall hope,
That he seemes wrapt withall: to me you speake not.

Your fauors, nor your hate

The court thus created consisted of fifteen counts and
barons. A day was appointed for the trial of the case. On that
day the judges took their seats in state, and proclamation was
made that the court was ready for business. Five minutes, ten
minutes, fifteen minutes passed, and yet no Fridolin appeared.
Landulph rose, and was in the act of claiming judgment by default
What is Man?
