lago. You charge me most unjustly.
Rod. : With nought but truth. I have wasted myself out of b my means. The jewels you have had from me to deliver i to Desdemona, would half have corrupted a votarist. You have told ine she hath receiv'd them, and return’d me expectations and comforts of sudden respect and * acquittance; but I find none.

Iago. Very well.
Rod. "I say it is not very well. I will inake myself known to Desdemona: if she will return me my jewels, I will give over my fuit, and repent my unlawful solicitation; if not, assure yourself, I will seek satisfaction of you.
