THE COMEDY OF ERRORS.

XII.

DROMIO of Syracuse brings the gold to ANTIPHOLUS

of Syracuse : they are met by the Courtezan, who claims the gold chain promised to her by ANTIPHOLUS of Ephesus.

“ Cour. Well met, well met, master Antipholus. I see, sir, you have found the goldsmith now : Is that the chain you promised me to-day?

ANT. Satan, avoid! I charge thee tempt me not !

Cour. Give me the ring of mine you had at dinner,
Or, for my diamond, the chain you promised,
And I'll be gone, sir, and not trouble you.

Dro. Some devils ask but the paring of one's nail,
A rush, a hair, a drop of blood, a pin,
A nut, a cherry-stone; but she, more covetous,
Would have a chain.
Master, be wise: an’ if you give it her,
The devil will shake her chain, and fright us with it.

Cour. I pray you, sir, my ring, or else the chain.
I hope you do not mean to cheat me so.
ANT. Avaunt, thou witch! Come, Dromio, let us go."

Act IV. S. 3.
