  • My masters, let's stand close: my lord protector
    will come this way by and by, and then we may deliver
    our supplications in the quill.
  • Father John Hume. Hume must make merry with the duchess' gold;
    Marry, and shall. But how now, Sir John Hume!
    Seal up your lips, and give no words but mum:
    The business asketh silent secrecy.
    Dame Eleanor gives gold to bring the witch:
    Gold cannot come amiss, were she a devil.
    Yet have I gold flies from another coast;
    I dare not say, from the rich cardinal
    And from the great and new-made Duke of Suffolk,
    Yet I do find it so; for to be plain,
    They, knowing Dame Eleanor's aspiring humour,
    Have hired me to undermine the duchess
    And buz these conjurations in her brain.
    They say 'A crafty knave does need no broker;'
    Yet am I Suffolk and the cardinal's broker.
    Hume, if you take not heed, you shall go near
    To call them both a pair of crafty knaves.
    Well, so it stands; and thus, I fear, at last
    Hume's knavery will be the duchess' wreck,
    And her attainture will be Humphrey's fall:
    Sort how it will, I shall have gold for all.

    First Petitioner. My masters, let's stand close: my lord protector
    will come this way by and by, and then we may deliver
    our supplications in the quill.

  • I pray, my lord, pardon me; I took ye for my lord
    protector.
  • Earl of Suffolk. How now, fellow! would'st anything with me?

    protector.

  • Mine is, an't please your grace, against John
    Goodman, my lord cardinal's man, for keeping my
    house, and lands, and wife and all, from me.
  • Queen Margaret. [Reading] 'To my Lord Protector!' Are your
    supplications to his lordship? Let me see them:
    what is thine?

    First Petitioner. Mine is, an't please your grace, against John
    Goodman, my lord cardinal's man, for keeping my
    house, and lands, and wife and all, from me.
