PAULINA, a gentleman, and attendants enter.
Call the prison overseer. Tell him who I am.
The gentleman exits.
No court in Europe is good enough for you, good lady, so why are you in prison?
The gentleman re-enters, with the Jailer.
Good sir, you know me, don’t you?
I know you as a worthy woman and one I have great respect for.
Please, then, take me to the queen.
I can’t, madam. I have explicit orders not to.
Such a fuss just to keep kind visitors from seeing such an honest and honorable lady! Am I allowed to see her attendants? Any of them? Emilia?
If you would please send away your attendants, I’ll bring out Emilia.
