Portia. I remember him well, and I remember him worthy of
thy praise.
[Enter a Serving-man]
How now! what news?

Servant. The four strangers seek for you, madam, to take
their leave: and there is a forerunner come from a
fifth, the Prince of Morocco, who brings word the
prince his master will be here to-night.

Servant. Where is my lady?



Portia. Here: what would my lord?

Servant. Madam, there is alighted at your gate
A young Venetian, one that comes before
To signify the approaching of his lord;
From whom he bringeth sensible regreets,
To wit, besides commends and courteous breath,
Gifts of rich value. Yet I have not seen
So likely an ambassador of love:
A day in April never came so sweet,
To show how costly summer was at hand,
As this fore-spurrer comes before his lord.



(stage directions). [Enter a Servant]

Servant. Gentlemen, my master Antonio is at his house and
desires to speak with you both.
