Bassanio comes to tell Antonio that he is in need of money once again. But he tells that in a round about manner. He says how much he was indebted to Antonio in his money and in his love. He then gives an example of his school days-says that when he used to shoot an arrow and lost it, he would visualize his moves and shoot another arrow in the same devised way and often found both the arrows. He says he will follow this example in the clearance of his debts. Then he starts telling Antonio about Portia. He says that he is in deep love with her and she too loves him. He only wishes to prove himself to be a worthy suitor to Portia. And if he wins her and then he has all chances to clear all his debts using her wealth. This is the summary of Bassanio's speech.
