PRINCE REGENT Dead ?    Then my fte is spoilt, by God !
SHERIDAN
L*ong live the King!    (He holds up his glass and bows to the Regent.)
MARCHIONESS OF HERTFORD (the new favourite, to the Regent)
The news is more natural than the moment of it! It is too cruel to you that it should happen now!
PRINCE REGENT
Damn me, though ; can it be true ?    (He provisionally throws a regal air into his countenance.)
DUCHESS OF YORK (on the Regent's left)
I hardly can believe it    This forenoon He was reported mending.
DUCHESS OF ANGOULEME (on the Regent's right)
On this side
