To deny them any longer, being so very pressing and importunate:
he said, send;
lest they should think he had not the respect for his master he should have had; or was so fond of his office, that he did not choose he should be found alive if he could, and return and reassume it:
they sent therefore fifty men;
some one way, and some another:
and they sought three days, but found him not;
and then returned.
