Merchant of Venice: Novel Summary: Act 2 Scene 8
This entire scene is comprised of a discussion between Salerio and Solanio about the departure of Bassanio's ship. There is confusion as to whether Jessica and Lorenzo were on the ship but Shylock raised the Duke to look into the matter and a search of the ship didn't find them. They say Shylock wailed in the street about his lost daughter, but moreso about his lost money. Salerio also mentions hearing word of a ship lost at sea which might have been one of Antonio's.
