ACT III
Scene IV. [Cyprus. Before the Castle.]

Oth. That which I gave you.
Des. I have it not about me.
60
Oth. Not?
Des. No indeed, my lord.
Oth. That is a fault.
That handkerchief
Did an Egyptian to my mother give.
65
She was a charmer, and could almost read
The thoughts of people. She told her, while she kept it,
'Twould make her amiable and subdue my father
Entirely to her love; but if she lost it
Or made a gift of it, my father's eye
70
Should hold her loathed, and his spirits should hunt
After new fancies. She, dying, gave it me,
And bid me, when my fate would have me wive,
To give it her. I did so; and take heed on't;
Make it a darling like your precious eye.
75
To lose't or give't away were such perdition
As nothing else could match.
Des. Is't possible?
Oth. 'Tis true. There's magic in the web of it.
A sibyl that had numb'red in the world
80
The sun to course two hundred compasses,
In her prophetic fury sewed the work
;The worms were hallowed that did breed the silk;
And it was dyed in mummy which the skilful
Conserved of maidens' hearts.
85
Des. I' faith? Is't true?
Oth. Most veritable. Therefore look tot well.
Des. Then would to God that I had never seen't!
Oth. Hal Wherefore?
