T’was a success last night. All could not be merrier! For Graziano, Salanio and I have stolen my dear Jessica from her father’s house. Many of her father jewels and ducats brought with her she did. When he had arrived she did not want to be torch bearer, for she was ashamed of being dressed as a man. She has said that she will marry me and shall “Become a Christian and thy loving wife.” a act faith that cannot be matched. I see why Grazanio does not believe she is a jew because she is too kind. But in my eyes she is more than that, she is wise, beautiful and faithful. Dear god she makes me go mad!
