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.

OTHELLO

Iago, give these letters to the captain of my ship, and tell him to extend my greetings to the senate back in Venice. Once that is done, come find me where I will be walking atop the walls.

IAGO

Well, my good lord, I’ll do ’t.

IAGO

Very well, my good lord. I'll do it.

OTHELLO

This fortification, gentlemen, shall we see ’t?

OTHELLO

Well then, gentlemen, shall we go see the walls of this fort?

GENTLEMEN

We’ll wait upon your lordship.

GENTLEMEN

After you, my lord.

Exeunt
