Subject:        Swear!

Is there any evidence in 1.5 that neither Horatio nor Marcellus hear the
ghost's commands to: "Swear" and "Swear by his sword"? Hamlet seems to
believe they hear the ghost given his comments: "Come on, you hear this
fellow in the cellarage" and then: "Never to speak of this that you have
heard". Is there any reason for us not to think so as well?
