Modern Text

CASSIO

I do attend here on the general
And think it no addition, nor my wish,
To have him see me womaned.

CASSIO

I’m waiting here for the general, and I don’t want him to see me with a woman.

BIANCA

      Why, I pray you?

BIANCA

And why’s that?

CASSIO

185Not that I love you not.

CASSIO

It’s not because I don’t love you.

BIANCA

    But that you do not love me.
I pray you bring me on the way a little
And say if I shall see you soon at night.

BIANCA

But you don’t love me. Please, just walk with me a little ways, and tell me if I’ll see you later tonight.

CASSIO

'Tis but a little way that I can bring you,
For I attend here. But I’ll see you soon.

CASSIO

I can only walk a little way with you, since I’m waiting here. But I’ll see you soon.

BIANCA

190'Tis very good. I must be circumstanced.

BIANCA

All right, have it your way. I have to make do.
Exeunt
They exit.
