swerable sequestration ;?--put but money in thy purse.

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 erring 3 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 pox of drowning thyself! it is clean out of the way; seek thou rather to be hanged in compass ing thy joy, than to be drowned and go without her.
Rod. Wilt thou be fast to my hopes, if I depend on the issue ?
Iago. Thou art sure of me.-Go, make money; -I have told thee often, and I retell thee again and again, I hate the Moor. My cause is hearted; 4 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 ; 5 go; provide thy money.
We will have more of this to-morrow. ---Adieu.
Rod. Where shall we meet i’ the morning ?
Go to; farewell. Do you hear, Roderigo ?

1 This is the reading of the quartos: the folio has :
“ And in the essential vesture of creation
Do's tyre the Ingeniuer.” If the reading of the folio be adopted, the meaning would be this:--- She is one who excels all description; and, in real beauty, or outward form, goes beyond the power of the inventive pencil of the artist.
