1. "There was one of Cæsar's friends called Cinna, that
had a marvellous strange and terrible dream the night before.
He dreamed that Cæsar bad him to supper, and that he refused
and would not go: then that Cæsar took him by the hand, and
led him against his will. Now Cinna, hearing at that time that
they burnt Cæsar's body in the market-place, notwithstanding
that he feared his dream, and had an ague on him besides, he
went into the market-place to honour his funerals. When he
came thither, one of the mean sort asked him what his name
was? He was straight called by his name. The first man told it
to another, and that other unto another, so that it ran
straight through them all, that he was one of them that
murthered Cæsar: (for indeed one of the traitors to Cæsar was
also called Cinna as himself) wherefore taking him for Cinna
the murtherer, they fell upon him with such fury that they
presently dispatched him in the market-place."--Plutarch,
Julius Cæsar.--to-night: last night. So in II, ii, 76, and
The Merchant of Venice, II, v, 18.
