What proof does Polonius provide Gertrude with to show that Hamlet is what he refers to as "mad"? What is Gertrude's response to Polonius?

Polonius shows Gertrude a strange letter that Ophelia has given him. It is a letter by Hamlet that is laced with sexual innuendo. Polonius claims the letter is a result of Hamlet's unrequited love for Ophelia. Gertrude is hoping this is the case because then Hamlets melancholy can be easily fixed.
