The Patient Man...Sc.3: She's alive! The Duke's daughter, Infelice, that is. Contemporary spy dramas are still using the plot device of a potion that causes seeming death for a period...
The Duke is attempting a desperate plot to split up his daughter and Hypolito by making each believe the other is dead.
