In Shakespeare's Othello 3.1.26, the Clown answers Cassio:
She is stirring, sir; if she will stir hither, I shall seem to notify unto her.
where the verb "seem" makes me confused.
The common usage "To be suitable to" (OED IV.I) or "To have a semblance or appearance" (OED IV.II) may not befit the text here.
The New Cambridge Shakespeare (Edited by Norman Sanders) gives an interpretation as "to arrange", citing A Midsummer Night's Dream 3.1.17
let the prologue seem to say.
But this usage is so rare that even OED does not record it.
So if Sanders is right, I may need some more quotations to support the explanation.
