Def. Beshrew me, if I would do fuche a wrong for the whole world.

Æmil. Why the wrong is but a wrong i th' world; and having the world for your labour, 'tis a wrong in

your own world, and you might quickly make it right.

Def. I do not think, there is any such woman.

Æmil. Yes, a dozen; and as many to the 'vantage as would store the world they play'd for, f But I do think it is their husbands faults If wives do fall. Say, that they slack their duties, And pour out treasures into foreign laps; Or elfe break out in peevith jealousies, Throwing restraint & upon us; or say, they strike us; Or scant our former Having in despight; Why, we have galls; and, though we have some grace, Yet have we some revenge. Let husbands know, Their wives have sense like them; they see and smell, And have their palates both for sweet and sour, As husbands have. What is it that they do, When they change us for others ? Is it sport? I think it is; and doth affection breed it? I think it doth; is ’t frailty that thus errs ? It is so too. And have not we affections ? Desires for i sport? and frailty, as men have ?

It must not be. If Caffio do remain,
