KENT

(giving GENTLEMAN a purse and a ring)
     No, do not.
45For confirmation that I am much more
Than my outwall, open this purse and take
What it contains. If you shall see Cordelia—
As fear not but you shall—show her this ring.
And she will tell you who that fellow is
50That yet you do not know. Fie on this storm!
I will go seek the king.

KENT

(giving the GENTLEMAN a purse and a ring) No, there’s no need. To assure you that I am a nobleman in disguise, here is some money. If you see Cordelia—as I’m sure you will—show her this ring. She’ll tell you who I am. Damn this storm! I’ll go find the king.

GENTLEMAN

Give me your hand. Have you no more to say?

GENTLEMAN

Let me shake your hand. Do you have anything else to tell me?

KENT

Few words, but to effect more than all yet:
That when we have found the king—in which your pain
55That way; I’ll this—he that first lights on him
Holla the other.

KENT

Only a few more words, but they’re the most important. Let me go this way, and you go that way. When one of us finds the king, he’ll call out to the other one.
Exeunt severally
They exit in opposite directions.
