[Enter Camillo and Archidamus.]
ARCHIDAMUS If you shall chance, Camillo, to visit Bohemia
on the like occasion whereon my services
are now on foot, you shall see, as I have said, great
difference betwixt our Bohemia and your Sicilia.
CAMILLO I think this coming summer the King of
Sicilia means to pay Bohemia the visitation which
he justly owes him.
ARCHIDAMUS Wherein our entertainment shall shame
us; we will be justified in our loves. For indeed—
CAMILLO Beseech you—
ARCHIDAMUS Verily, I speak it in the freedom of my
knowledge. We cannot with such magnificence—in
so rare—I know not what to say. We will give you
sleepy drinks, that your senses, unintelligent of our
 insufficience, may, though they cannot praise us, as
little accuse us.
CAMILLO You pay a great deal too dear for what’s given
ARCHIDAMUS Believe me, I speak as my understanding
 instructs me and as mine honesty puts it to
CAMILLO Sicilia cannot show himself over-kind to Bohemia.
They were trained together in their childhoods,
and there rooted betwixt them then such an
 affection which cannot choose but branch now.
Since their more mature dignities and royal necessities
made separation of their society, their encounters,
though not personal, hath been royally
attorneyed with interchange of gifts, letters, loving
 embassies, that they have seemed to be together
though absent, shook hands as over a vast, and
embraced as it were from the ends of opposed
winds. The heavens continue their loves.
ARCHIDAMUS I think there is not in the world either
 malice or matter to alter it. You have an unspeakable
comfort of your young Prince Mamillius. It is a
gentleman of the greatest promise that ever came
into my note.
CAMILLO I very well agree with you in the hopes of
 him. It is a gallant child—one that indeed physics
the subject, makes old hearts fresh. They that went
on crutches ere he was born desire yet their life to
see him a man.
ARCHIDAMUS Would they else be content to die?
CAMILLO Yes, if there were no other excuse why they
should desire to live.
ARCHIDAMUS If the King had no son, they would desire
to live on crutches till he had one.
