Dr. Faustus Scene 8: An Inn-Yard
His friend, Ralph, calls for him, telling Robin that a gentleman at the inn wants his horse cleaned. Robin tells him to keep out. Ralph wonders what Robin is doing with a book since he cannot read. Robin tells Ralph that with this book of magic, he can get him all the drink he wants. And he can make the kitchenmaid serve him in any way. Ralph is excited and they make plans to use the book of spells later.
