PART III I TROW, men would but deem it negligence If I forget to tell the great expense Of Theseus, who prepares so busily To furnish all the lists full royally; A theatre so noble has he made, I say the world its like had ne'er surveyed. Its ample circuit went a mile about, 1029 All strongly walled with stone, and ditched without.
