  Scene Three

  [A hall in the castle Enter OTHELLO,DESDEMONA,CASSIO,and Attendants.]

  OTHELLO

  Good Michael,look you to the guardto-night:Let's teach ourselves that honourable stop,Not to outsport discretion.

  CASSIO

  Iago hath direction what to do;But,notwithstanding,with my personal eye Will I look to't.

  OTHELLO

  Iago is most honest.Michael,good night:to-morrow with your earliest Let me have speech with you

  [To DESDEMONA]

  Come,my dear love,The purchasemade,the fruits are to ensue;That profit's yet to come'tween me and you.Good night.

  [Exeunt OTHELLO,DESDEMONA, and Attendants.Enter IAGO]

  CASSIO

  Welcome,Iago;we must to the watch .

  IAGO

  Not this hour,lieutenant;'tis not yet ten o'the clock.Our general castus thus early for the love of his Desdemona;who let us not therefore blame:he hath not yet made wantonthe night with her;and she is sport for Jove.

  CASSIO

  She's a most exquisitelady.

  IAGO

  And,I'll warranther,fun of game.

  CASSIO

  Indeed, she's a most fresh and delicate creature

  IAGO

  What an eye she has!methinksit sounds a parley of provocation.

  CASSIO

  An invitingeye;and yet methinks right modest.

  IAGO

  And when she speaks,is it not an alarumto love?

  CASSIO

  She is indeed perfection.

  IAGO

  Well, happiness to their sheets! Come,lieutenant,I have a stoup of wine;and here without are a brace of Cyprus gallants that would fain have a measure to the health of black Othello

  CASSIO

  Not to-night, good Iago:I have very poor and unhappy brains for drinking:I could well wish courtesy would invent some other custom of entertainment.

  IAGO

  O, they are our friends;but one cup:I'll drink for you.

  CASSIO

  I have drunk but one cup to-night,and that was craftilyqualified too,and,behold,what innovation it makes here:I am unfortunate in the infirmity,and dare not task my weakness with any more.

  IAGO

  What, man!'tis a night of revels: the gallants desire it.

  CASSIO

  Where are they?

  IAGO

  Here at the door;I pray you,call them in.

  CASSIO

  I'll do't; but it dislikes me [Exit]

  IAGO

  If I can fastenbut one cup upon him,With that which he hath drunk to-night already,He'll be as full of quarrel and offence As my young mistress'dog.Now,my sick fool Roderigo,Whom love hath turn'd almost the wrong side out,To Desdemona hath to-night caroused Potations pottle-deep;and he's to watch:Three ladsof Cyprus,noble swellingspirits,That hold their honours in a wary distance,The very elements of this warlike isle,Have I to-night fluster'dwith flowing cups,And they watch too.Now,'mongst this flock of drunkards,Am I to put our Cassio in some action That may offend the isle.——But here they come:If consequencedo but approve my dream,My boat sails freely,both with wind and stream.

  [Re-enter CASSIO;with him MONTANO and Gentlemen;

  servants following with wine]

  CASSIO

  'Fore God, they have given me a rouse already.

  MONTANO

  Good faith,a little one;not past a pint , as I am a soldier.

  IAGO

  Some wine,ho!

  [Sings]

  And let me the canakinclink,clink;And let me the canakin clink A soldier's a man;A life's but a span;Why,then,let a soldier drink.Some wine,boys!

  CASSIO

  'Fore God,an excellent song.

  IAGO

  I learned it in England,where,indeed,they are most potentin potting:your Dane,your German,and your swag-belliedHollander——Drink,ho!——are nothing to your English.

  CASSIO

  Is your Englishman so expertin his drinking?

  IAGO

  Why,he drinks you,with facility,your Danedead drunk;he sweats not to overthrow your Almain; he gives your Hollander a vomit,ere the next pottle can be filled.

  CASSIO

  To the health of our general!

  MONTANO

  I am for it,lieutenant;and I'll do you justice.

  IAGO

  O sweet England!King Stephen was a worthy peer,His breechescost him but a crown;He held them sixpence all too dear,With that he call'd the tailor lown.He was a wightof high renown,And thou art but of low degree:'Tis pride that pulls the country down;Then take thineauld cloak about thee.Some wine,ho!

  CASSIO

  Why, this is a more exquisite song than the other.

  IAGO

  Will you hear' again?

  CASSIO

  No;for I hold him to be unworthyof his place that does those things.Well,God's above all;and there be souls must be saved,and there be souls must not be saved.

  IAGO

  It's true,good lieutenant.

  CASSIO

  For mine own part,——no offence to the general,nor any man of quality,——I hope to be saved.

  IAGO

  And so do I too,lieutenant.

  CASSIO

  Ay, but, by your leave,not before me;the lieutenant is to be saved before the ancient.Le's have no more of this; let's to our affairs.——Forgive us our sins!——Gentlemen,let's look to our business.Do not think,gentlemen. I am drunk:this is my ancient;this is my right hand,and this is my left:I am not drunk now;I can stand well enough,and speak well enough.All Excellent well.

  CASSIO

  Why, very well then; you must not think then that I am drunk.

  [Exit]
