[The house is open, and before the door stand three men clad in black mantles, holding torches.Clavigoenters, wrapped in a cloak, his sword under his arm; aServantgoes before him with a torch.
I told you to avoid this street.
We must have gone a great way round, sir, and you are in such haste. It is not far hence where Don Carlos is lodged.
A funeral. Come on, sir.
Marie’s abode! A funeral! A death-agony shudders through all my limbs! Go, ask whom they are going to bury.
(To the men.) Whom are you going to bury?
Marie de Beaumarchais.
[Clavigosits down on a stone and covers himself with a cloak.
(Comes back.) They are going to bury Marie de Beaumarchais.
(Springing up.) Must thou repeat it? Repeat that word of thunder which strikes all the marrow out of my bones?
Peace, sir! Come on, sir. Consider the danger by which you are surrounded.
To hell with thee, reptile! I remain.
O Carlos! Oh, that I could find thee!—Carlos!—he has lost his reason.
