112 FIRST PART OF KING HENRY VI.

[ocr errors]

As I am sick with working of my thoughts.
Take, therefore, shipping; post, my lord, to France;
Agree to any covenants; and procure
That lady Margaret do vouchsafe to come
To cross the seas to England, and be crown'd
King Henry's faithful and anointed queen:
For

your expences and sufficient charge,
Among the people gather up a tenth.
Be
gone, I say; for, till

you do return,
I rest perplexed with a thousand cares.-
And you, good uncle, banish all offence:
If you do censure me by what you were,
Not what you are, I know it will excuse
This sudden execution of my will.
And so conduct me, where, from company,
I may
revolve and ruminate my grief.

[Exit. Glo. Ay, grief, I fear me, both at first and last.

[Exeunt Glo'ster and Ereter. Suf. Thus Suffolk hath prevaild: and thus he

goes, As did the youthful Paris once to Greece; With hope to find the like event in love, But prosper

better than the Trojan did. Margaret shall now be queen, and rule the king; But I will rule both her, the king, and realm.

[Exit.

Cade. These five days have I hid me in these woods; and durst not peep out, for all the country is lay'd for me; but now am I so hungry, that if I might have a lease of my life for a thousand years, I could stay no longer.

King Henry the Sirth.
