But I pray you, sir, Are you fast married? Be assur'd of this, That the magnifico is much belov'dAnd hath in his effect a voice potentialAs double as the duke's; he will divorce you, Or put upon you what restraint and grievanceThe law (with all his might to enforce it on)Will give him cable.OTHELLO.Let him do his spite;My services, which I have done the signiory, Shall out-tongue his complaints.
