FAUSTUS: [Writing] Ay, so I do. But, Mephistophilis, My blood congeals, and I can write no more. MEPHASTOPHILIS: I'll fetch thee fire to dissolve it straight. (Exit) FAUSTUS:What might the staying of my blood portend? Is it unwilling I should write this bill? Why streams it not, that I may write afresh? FAUSTUS GIVES TO THEE HIS SOUL: O, there it stay'd!
