your napkin is too little: let it alone

The scene in which Desdemona loses the precious handkerchief that is to testify so fatally against her is given thus in the Folio:

Oth: I have a pain upon my forehead, heere

Des: Why that's with watching, 'twill away againe.
Let me but binde it hard, within this houre
It will be well.

Oth: Your napkin is too little,
Let it alone: Come Ile go in with you


Des: I am very sorry that you are not well.
