Stamped in gold: but that's insculp'd* upon ;
there, Then I am yours.
[He unlocks the golden casket. Mor.
O hell! what have we here?
All that glisters is not gold,
outside to behold :
Fare you well; your suit is cold.
Then, farewell, heat; and, welcome, frost.-

Venice. A street.
Enter Salarino and Salanio.
Salar. Why man, I saw Bassanio under sail ;
Salan. The villain Jew with outcries rais'd the
Who went with him to search Bassanio's ship,
Salar. He came too late, the ship was under sail : But there the duke was given to understand, That in a gondola were seen together Lorenzo and his amorous Jessica : Besides, Antonio certify'd the duke, They were not with Bassanio in his ship.
Salan. I never heard a passion so confus’d, So strange, outrageous, and so variable, As the dog Jew did utter in the streets : My daughter !-O my ducats !-O my daughter ! Fled with a Christian? - my Christian ducats !Justice ! the law ! my ducats, and my daughter ! A sealed bag, two sealed bags of ducats, Of double ducats, stoln from me by my daughter ! And jewels; two stones, two rich and precious stones, Stol'n by my daughter !-Justice! find the girl ! She hath the stones upon her, and the ducats !
Salar. Why, all the boys in Venice follow him, Crying,-his stones, his daughter, and his ducats.
Salan. Let good Antonio look he keep his day, Or he shall pay for this. Salar.
Marry, well remember'd : I reason'd* with a Frenchman yesterday; Who told me, in the narrow seas, that part The French and English, there miscarried A vessel of our country, richly fraught: I thought upon Antonio, when he told me; And wish'd in silence that it were not his. Salan. You were best to tell Antonio what you
hear; Yet do not suddenly, for it may grieve him.
Salar. A kinder gentleman treads not the earth. I saw Bassanio and Antonio part: Bassanio told him he would make some speed Of his return; he answer'd-Do not so, Slubber not t business for my sake, Bassanio, But stay the very riping of the time ; And for the Jew's bond, which he hath of me,
of To slubber is to do a thing carelessly.
Let it not enter in your mind of love :
Salan. I think he only loves the world for him.
Do we so.
Belmont. A room in Portia's house.
Enter Nerissa, with a servant. Ner. Quick, quiek, I pray thee, draw the curtain
straight; The prince of Arragon has ta’en his oath, And comes to his election presently. Flourish of cornets. Enter the Prince of Arragon,
Portia, and their trains.
Ar. I am enjoin'd by oath to observe three things:
+ The heaviness he is fond of.
