BABA (To Anne) You love him, seek to set him right. He's but a shuttle-headed lad. Not quite a gentleman, nor quite completely vanquished by the bad. Who knows what care and love might do? But good or bad, I know he still loves you.
ANNE He loves me still! Then I alone in weeping doubt have been untrue. Oh hope, endear my love. Atone, grace whatever may ensue. Enlighten,
SELLEM, FIRST GROUP He loves her.
THE SECOND GROUP Who?
SELLEM, FIRST GROUP That isn't known.
THE SECOND GROUP He loves her still.
SELLEM, FIRST GROUP The tale is sad, if true.
BABA So find him and his man beware! I may have made a bad mistake, yet I can tell who in that pair is poisoned victim and who snake! Then go!
ANNE But where shall you...?
BABA My dear, a gifted lady never need have fear. I shall go back and grace the stage where manner rules and wealth attends. Can I deny my time its rage? My self-indulgent intermezzo ends.
ANNE Can I for him all love engage and yet believe her happy when love ends?
CROWD She will go back. Her view is sage. That's life. We came to buy. See how it ends.
SELLEM Money farewell. Who'll buy?. The auction ends.
