Gam — “Davy,” HENRY V., iv. 8. 102. “This gentleman being sent by Henry, before the battle, to reconnoitre the enemy, and to find out their strength, made this report: ‘May it please you, my liege, there are enough to be killed, enough to be taken prisoners, and enough to run away.’ He saved the king's life in the field. Had our poet been apprized of this circumstance, this brave Welshman would probably have been more particularly noticed, and not have been merely registered in a muster-roll of names” (MALONE) .
