Welcome back from Mantua! What does Romeo say? Or if he sent a letter, let me read it.
I went to find another friar to come with me. He was in this city visiting the sick. When I found him, the town health officials concluded that we were both in a house that had been hit with the plague. They quarantined the house and would'nt let us out, so we were stuck there and couldn't go to Mantua.
Then who took my letter to Romeo?!?!
I couldn't send it, here it is. I also couldn't get anyone else to bring it to you either because they were scared of spreading the infection.
This is not good. The letter wasn't just a friendly greeting, it was full of very important information too. The fact that it has not been sent is very bad. Friar John, go and get me an iron crowbar and bring it straight to my cell.
