Not illustrated. 1913 edition. Excerpt: ...stock Was graft with crab-tree slip; whose fruit thou art And never of the N evils' noble race. 215 War. But that the guilt of murder bucklers thee And I should rob the deathsman of his fee, Quitting thee thereby of ten thousand shames, And that my sovereign's presence makes me mild, I would, false murd'rous coward, on thy knee 220 Make thee beg pardon for thy passed speech And say it was thy mother that thou meant'st, That thou thyself wast born in bastardy; And after all this fearful homage done, Give thee thy hire and send thy soul to hell, 225 Pernicious blood-sucker of sleeping men! Suf. Thou shalt be waking while I shed thy blood, If from this presence thou dar'st go with me. War. Away even now, or I will drag thee hence. 229 Unworthy though thou art, I'll cope with thee And do some service to Duke Humphrey's ghost. Exeunt Sufiolk and Warwick. King. What stronger breastplate than a heart untainted! Thrice is he arm'd that hath his quarrel just, And he but naked, though lock'd up in steel, Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted. 235 A noise within. Queen. What noise is this? Re-enter Sufiolk and Warwick, with their weapons drawn. King. Why, how now, lords! your wrathful Weapons drawn Here in our presence! Dare you be so bold? Why, what tumultuous clamour have we here?

Dread lord, the commons send you word by me, Unless Lord Suffolk straight be done to death, Or banished fair England's territories, 245 They will by violence tear him from your palace And torture him with more
