SCENE I.—The same. Fields between Dartford and
The King's Camp on one side. On the other, enter YORK
Buck. York, if thou meanest well, I greet thee well.
York. Humphrey of Buckingham, I accept thy greeting. Art thou a messenger, or come of pleasure ?
Buck. A messenger from Henry, our dread liege, i To know the reason of these arms in peace; Or why, thou-being a subject as I am,Against thy oath and true allegiance sworn, Should'st raise so great a power without his leave, Or dare to bring thy force so near the court. York. Scarce can I speak, my choler is so
great. 0, I could hew up rocks, and fight with fint, I am so angry at these abject terms; And now, like Ajax Telamonius,
Buck. That is too much presumption on thy part:
York. Upon thine honour, is he prisoner?
York. Then, Buckingham, I do dismiss my powers.-
And let my sovereign, virtuous Henry
Buck. York, I commend this kind submission :
Enter King Henry, attended. K. Hen. Buckingham, doth York intend no harm to us, That thus he marcheth with thee arm in arm?
York. In all submission and humility, York doth present himself unto your highness. K. Hen. Then what intend these forces thou dost
bring? York. To heave the traitor Somerset from hence; And fight against that monstrous rebel, Cade, Who since I heard to be discomfited.
.Enter IDEN, with Cade's Head. Iden. If one so rude, and of so mean condition, May pass into the presence of a king, Lo, I present your grace a traitor's head, The head of Cade, whom I in combat slew. K. Hen. The head of Cade?-Great God, how just
art thou !-
Iden. I was, an't like your majesty.
Buck. So please it you, my lord, 'twere not amiss
knight. We give thee for reward a thousand marks ; And will, that thou henceforth attend on us.
Iden. May Iden live to merit such a bounty, And never live but true unto his liege. K. Hen. See, Buckingham ! Somerset comes with the
queen; Go, bid her hide him quickly from the duke.
Enter Queen MARGARET and SOMERSET. Q. Mar. For thousand Yorks he shall not hide his
York. How now! Is Somerset at liberty ?
Is able with the change to kill and cure.
Som. O monstrous traitor! I arrest thee, York,
these, If they can brook I bow a knee to man.Sirrah, call in my sons to be my bail ;
[Exit an Attendant. I know, ere they will have me go to ward, They'll pawn their swords for my enfranchisement.
Q. Mar. Call hither Clifford; bid him come amain, To say, if that the bastard boys of York Shall be the surety for their traitor father.
York. O blood-bespotted Neapolitan, Outcast of Naples, England's bloody scourge! The sons of York, thy betters in their birth, Shall be their father's bail; and bane to those That for my surety will refuse the boys.
Enter EDWARD and Richard PLANTAGENET, with
Forces, at one side ; at the other, with Forces also, old
CLIFFORD and his Son. See, where they come: I'll warrant they'll make it good.
Q. Mar. And here comes Clifford, to deny their bail. Clif. Health and all happiness to my lord the king !
