• Enter OTHELLO, IAGO, and GENTLEMEN

    OTHELLO

    These letters give, Iago, to the pilot,
    And by him do my duties to the senate.
    That done, I will be walking on the works,
    Repair there to me.

    IAGO

    5Well, my good lord, I’ll do ’t.

    OTHELLO

    This fortification, gentlemen, shall we see ’t?

    GENTLEMEN

    We’ll wait upon your lordship.
    Exeunt
  • OTHELLO, IAGO and GENTLEMEN enter.

    OTHELLO

    Iago, give these letters to the ship’s captain who brought me here, and ask him to pay my respects to the Senate of Venice. Now that’s done, I’m going to walk on the fortification walls. Look for me there when you come back.

    IAGO

    I will, my lord.

    OTHELLO

    Shall we go see this fortification, men?

    GENTLEMEN

    We’re at your service, my lord.
    They all exit.
