Weare thy good rapier bare, and put it home,

And he growes angry now: whether he kill Caffio,
Or Caffio him, or each doe kill the other,

For gold and iewells, that I bobd from him,
As gifts to Desdemona :

He has a daily beauty in his life,
That makes me vgly: and besides, the Moore
May vnfould me to him ; there stand I in * perrill;
No, he must die, be't so, I heare him comming.
