Will his vouchers vouch him no more of his purchases, and double ones, too, than the length and breadth of a pair of indentures?

Sound, my friends. This passage is a festival of sound. After a world of fine, we have gone to a repetition of vouch, which links quite nicely in sound to purchases.
The rhythm of length and breadth – pairs nicely with a pair of indentures.

This passage isn’t here for meaning, I don’t think – it’s almost a song in response to the gravediggers song. It’s an answer song from Hamlet.
