ACT I
Scene III. [Venice. A chamber in the Senate House.]

What conjuration, and what mighty magic
(For such proceeding am I charged withal)
105
I won his daughter.
Bra. A maiden never bold;
Of spirit so still and quiet that her motion
Blushed at herself; and she-in spite of nature,
Of years, of country, credit, everything
110
To fall in love with what she feared to look on!
It is a judgment maimed and most imperfect
That will confess perfection so could err
Against all rules of nature, and must be driven
To find out practices of cunning hell
115
Why this should be. I therefore vouch again
That with some mixtures pow'rful o'er the blood,
Or with some dram, conjured to this effect,
He wrought upon her.
Duke. To vouch this is no proof,
120
Without more certain and more overt test
Than these thin habits and poor likelihoods
Of modern seeming do prefer against him.
1. Sen. But, Othello, speak. ,
Did you by indirect and forced courses
125
Subdue and poison this young maid's affections?
Or came it by request, and such fair question
As soul to soul affordeth?
Oth. I do beseech you,
Send for the lady to the Sagittary
130
And let her speak of me before her father.
If you do find me foul in her report,
The trust, the office, I do hold of you
Not only take away, but let your sentence
Even fall upon my life.
