(Balthazar paces a while, in medieval clothes, clutching a dim lantern, until his brother approaches from the other direction.)

Balthazar: Halt! Who goes there?

Jedediah: Your brother, and your mortal enemy.

Balthazar: That you are my brother, I doubt not.

Balthazar: Oh worthy man, how so? And such a doting father.

Jedediah: Or it’s as if he were, his daughter
