SCENE V

Lord Derby's house.
Enter DERBY and SIR CHRISTOPHER URSWICK.

Der.
Sir Christopher, tell Richmond this from me:

That in the sty of this most bloody boar

My son George Stanley is frank'd up in hold:

If I revolt, off goes young George's head;

The fear of that withholds my present aid.

But, tell me, where is princely Richmond now?

Chris.
At Pembroke, or at Ha'rford-west, in Wales.

Der.
What men of name resort to him?

Chris.
Sir Walter Herbert, a renowned soldier; (10)

Sir Gilbert Talbot, Sir William Stanley;

Oxford, redoubted Pembroke, Sir James Blunt,

And Rice ap Thomas with a valiant crew;

And many more of noble fame and worth:

And towards London they do bend their course,

If by the way they be not fought withal.

Der.
Return unto thy lord; commend me to him:

Tell him the queen hath heartily consented

He shall espouse Elizabeth her daughter.

These letters will resolve him of my mind. (20)

Farewell. [Exeunt.
