Artemidorus, a teacher and a friend of several of the conspirators (he is aware of the plan to murder Caesar) reads a letter that he has written for Caesar warning him of the danger that awaits him.
Here will I stand till Caesar pass along, and as a suitor will I give him this, if thou read this, O Caesar, thou may live; if not, the fates with traitors do contrive.
Portia sends one of their servants to the Senate to check on Brutus when a Soothsayer passes on his way to the Senate to speak with Caesar. Portia asks if he is aware of any harm that is intended for Caesar. The Soothsayer states that he is aware of none, but still fears of Caesar.
I prithee boy, run to the Senate House and bring me word if thy lord look well, for he went sickly forth.
Thou hast some suit to Caesar, hast thou not?
Do you know of any harm intended toward him?
None, that I know will be, much that I fear may chance.
That I have lady. If Caesar will hear me, I shall beseech him to befriend himself.
Caesar approaches the Senate and dismisses both the Soothsayer and Artemidorus. Soon he is stabbed by Casca and the rest of the conspirators. What shocked Caesar was the involvement of Brutus.
The ides of March are come
Aye Caesar, but not gone.
Hail, Caesar! Read this schedule. Read it great Caesar. Delay not.
