William Shakespeare (1564–1616).  The Oxford Shakespeare.  1914.
 
Pericles, Prince of Tyre
 
Act III. Scene IV.
 
Ephesus.  A Room in CERIMON’S House.
 
Enter CERIMON and THAISA.
  Cer.  Madam, this letter, and some certain jewels,
Lay with you in your coffer; which are now
At your command. Know you the character?        5
  Thai.  It is my lord’s.
That I was shipp’d at sea, I well remember,
Even on my eaning time; but whether there
Deliver’d, by the holy gods,
I cannot rightly say. But since King Pericles,        10
My wedded lord, I ne’er shall see again,
A vestal livery will I take me to,
And never more have joy.
  Cer.  Madam, if this you purpose as you speak,
Diana’s temple is not distant far,        15
Where you may abide till your date expire.
Moreover, if you please, a niece of mine
Shall there attend you.
  Thai.  My recompense is thanks, that’s all;
Yet my good will is great, though the gift small.  [Exeunt.        20
