4)All of Antonio’s ships are lost in the sea. (?)
5)They can inherit his property when he dies (after his death, at his death?). Shylock hopes that his daughter will die soon (will be soon dead?). He wishes his daughter’s death.
6)There is some good news (or a good piece of news) for Antonio and Jessica.
