Why through the window not withdraw?
For ghosts and for the devil 'tis a law. Where they stole in, there they must
forth. We're free The first to choose; as to the second, slaves are we.
E'en hell hath its peculiar laws, I see! I'm glad of that! a pact may then be
made, The which you gentlemen will surely keep?
What e'er therein is promised thou shalt reap, No tittle shall remain unpaid.
But such arrangements time require; We'll speak of them when next we meet;
Most earnestly I now entreat, This once permission to retire.
