Don John, Sganarelle, a Ghost in the form of a Woman veil'd
GHOST: Don John has but a Moment's time to lay hold on the Mercy of Heav'n, and if he do not repent now, his Destruction is certain.
SGANARELLE: Do you hear, Sir?
DON JOHN: Who dares to say this? I think I know the Voice.
SGANARELLE: Oh, Sir, 'tis a Ghost, I know it by its walking.
DON JOHN: Ghost, Phantom, or Devil, I'll see what 'tis.
[The GHOST changes its Figure, and represents Time with a Scythe in its Hand.]
SGANARELLE: O Heav'ns! Do you see this Metamorphosis, Sir?
DON JOHN: No, no, nothing is capable of terrifying me, and with my Sword I'll try whether 'tis a Body or a Spirit. The SPIRIT vanishes when Don John offers to strike it.]
SGANARELLE: O Sir, yield to so many Proofs, and fall to Repentance quickly.
DON JOHN: No, no, come what will, it shall never be said that I was capable of Repentance. Follow
The Statue, Don John, Sganarelle
STATUE: Stay, Don John. Yesterday you gave me your Word to come and eat with me.
DON JOHN: I did; where must I go?
STATUE: Give me your Hand.
DON JOHN: There 'tis.
STATUE: Don John, Obstinacy in Wickedness brings on a fatal Death; and Heaven's Mercy rejected opens away for its Thunder.
DON JOHN: O Heav'ns, what do I feel! An invisible Flame consumes me; I can bear it no longer; all my Body is a burning Firebrand. Oh -[Thunder and Lightning, with a great noise, fall upon DON JOHN, the Earth opens and swallows him up, and Great Flames rise from the Place he sunk into.]
SGANARELLE: Ha! My Wages! My Wages! Now is everybody satisfy'd by his Death. Offended Heav'n, violated Laws, seduced Daughters, dishonour'd Families, abused Parents, Wives reduced to Misery, Husbands to Desperation, ev'rybody is contented; I alone am miserable. My Wages, my Wages, my Wages!
