Shylock enters, learns all; in come soldiers for Shylock, and, of course, accuse him of the murder; whereupon Shylock shows on the blade a cross. "Doth a Jew wear a knife with a cross on it?" says he. "Go to! 'tis a Christian murder." To this the soldier-head has nothing to say; so he hurries Shylock off to prison, and down comes the curtain. "Hum!" says the Greek Chorus, "it might be worse."
