Graff, caterpillar

Pericles, [5.1.55-62]. Helicanus. “But, since your kindness/ We have stretch’d thus far, let us beseech you/ That for our gold we may provision have,/ Wherein we are not destitute for want,/ But weary for the staleness.” Lysimachus. “O, sir, a courtesy/ Which if we should deny, the most just gods/ For every graff would send a caterpillar,/ And so inflict our province.”
