Act III, Scene 4
Ephesus. A room in Cerimon’s house.
- Enter Cerimon and Thaisa.
Cerimon1 - 3
- Madam, this letter and some certain jewels
- Lay with you in your coffer, which are
- At your command. Know you the character?
Thaisa4 - 11
- It is my lord’s.
- That I was shipp’d at sea I well remember,
- Even on my eaning time, but whether there
- Delivered, by the holy gods
- I cannot rightly say. But since King Pericles,
- My wedded lord, I ne’er shall see again,
- A vestal livery will I take me to,
- And never more have joy.
Cerimon12 - 16
- Madam, if this you purpose as ye speak,
- Diana’s temple is not distant far,
- Where you may abide till your date expire.
- Moreover if you please a niece of mine
- Shall there attend you.
Thaisa17 - 18
- My recompense is thanks, that’s all,
- Yet my good will is great, though the gift small.
