FRAGMENT (FROM THE ELIZABETHANS), by                    
First Line: Paracelsus (entering hurriedly)
Last Line: [exit, pursued by a cow.]
Subject(s): Oxford University

PARACELSUS (entering hurriedly):
I am become a frightful bloody murtherer:
Meeting my grandam in the buttery hatch,
I hackt, forsooth, and hewed her jauntilie,
And cast her reaking fragments on the air.
[Exit, pursued by a Cow.]
