“We must give up to Diomedes' hand The Lady Cressida. TROILUS. Is it so concluded?
Aeneas. By Priam, and the general state of Troy.
They are at hand and ready to effect it. TROILUS. How my achievements mock me!
I will go meet them; and, my lord Aeneas, We met by chance; you did not find me here. Aeneas. Good, good, my lord, the secrets of neighbour Pandar
Have not more gift in taciturnity. Exeunt TROILUS and AENEAS” source
