Once Cio-Cio-San sends the prince on his way, Sharpless continues to read the letter from Pinkerton, which reveals he's returning to Nagasaki... with a new wife. Unfortunately, Cio-Cio-San isn't listening, and Sharpless can't bring himself to deliver the full message. Instead, he hints she should take the up the offer of marriage from the prince.
