  • This day thou either shalt bring back the head And bloody trophies of the Trojan dead; This day thou either shalt revenge my woe, For murther’d Lausus, on his cruel foe; Or, if inexorable fate deny Our conquest, with thy conquer’d master die: For, after such a lord, rest secure, Thou wilt no foreign reins, or Trojan load endure."
