unbitted? lust; whereof I take this, that you calllove, to be a sect,2 or scion.
Rod. It cannot be.
lago. It is merely a lust of the blood, and a permission of the will. Come, be a man: Drown thyself? drown cats, and blind puppies. I have professed me thy friend, and I confess me knit to thy deserving with cables of perdurable toughness : 1 could never better stead thee than now. Put money in thy purse; follow these wars; defeat thy favour with an usurped beard ;3 I say, put money in thy purse. It cannot be, that Desdemona should long continue her love to the Moor,-put money in thy purse ;-nor he bis to her: it was a violent commencement, and thou shalt see an answerable sequestration ;-put but money in thy purse. These Moors are changeable in their wills ;-fill thy purse with money: the food that to him now is as luscious as locusts, shall be to him shortly as bitter as coloquintida. She must change for youth: when she is sated with his body, she will find the error of her choice.—She must have change, she must: therefore put money in thy purse. If thou wilt needs damn thyself, do it a more delicate way than drowning. Make all the money thou canst : If sanctimony and a frail vow, betwixt an erringe barbarian and a supersubtle Venetian, be not too hard for my wits, and all the tribe of hell, thou shalt enjoy her; therefore make money. A pos of drowning thyself! it is clean out of the way; thou rather to be banged in compassing thy joy, than to be drowned and go without her.
Rod. Wilt thou be fast to my hopes, if I depend on the issue?
lago. Thou art sure of me;-Go, make money: (1) Unbridled. (2) A sect is what the gardeners call a cutting. (3) Change your countenance with a false beard. (4) Wandering.
-I have told thee often, and I re-tell thee again and again, I hate the Moor: My cause is hearted: thine hath no less reason: Let us be conjunctive in our revenge against him : if thou canst cuckold him, thou dost thyself a pleasure, and me a sport. There are many events in the womb of time, which will be delivered. Traverse ;' go; provide thy money.
We will have more of this to-morrow.
Rod. Where shall we meet i'the morning?
Iago. Go to; farewell: put money enough in your purse.

An ancient military word.of command.

SCENE I.-A sea-port town in Cyprus. A plat.
form. Enter Montano and two Gentlemen. Mon. What from the cape can you discern at sea?
1 Gent. Nothing at all: it is a high-wrought flood; I cannot, 'twixt the heaven and the main, Descry a sail. Mon. Methinks, the wiņd hath spoke aloud at
land: A fuller blast ne'er shook our battlements : If it hatb ruffian'd so upon the sea, What ribs of oak, when mountains melt on them, Can hold the mortise? what shall we hear of this?
2 Gent. A segregation of the Turkish fleet:
If that the Turkish fleet Be not inshelter'd and embay'd, they are drown'd; It is impossible they bear it out.
Enter a third Gentleman. 3 Gent. News, lords ! our wars are done;
The desperate tempest hath so bang'd the Turks,

'Pray heaven he be;
Come, let's do so;
on a dangerous sea.
Cas. His bark is stoutly timber'd, and his pilot
(Within.] A sail, a sail, a sail !
Enter another Gentleman. Cas. What noise ?
4 Gent. The town is empty: on the brow o'the sea Stand ranks of people, and they cry—a sail.
Cas. My hopes do shape him for the governor.
pray you, sir, go forth,
Re-enter second Gentleman.
