  • My Lord Aumerle, is Harry Hereford arm'd?
  • My Lord Aumerle, is Harry Hereford arm'd?
  • Duchess of Gloucester. Yet one word more: grief boundeth where it falls,
    Not with the empty hollowness, but weight:
    I take my leave before I have begun,
    For sorrow ends not when it seemeth done.
    Commend me to thy brother, Edmund York.
    Lo, this is all:--nay, yet depart not so;
    Though this be all, do not so quickly go;
    I shall remember more. Bid him--ah, what?--
    With all good speed at Plashy visit me.
    Alack, and what shall good old York there see
    But empty lodgings and unfurnish'd walls,
    Unpeopled offices, untrodden stones?
    And what hear there for welcome but my groans?
    Therefore commend me; let him not come there,
    To seek out sorrow that dwells every where.
    Desolate, desolate, will I hence and die:
    The last leave of thee takes my weeping eye.

    Lord Marshal. My Lord Aumerle, is Harry Hereford arm'd?

  • In God's name and the king's, say who thou art

    Speak truly, on thy knighthood and thy oath;
    As so defend thee heaven and thy valour!
  • King Richard II. Marshal, demand of yonder champion
    The cause of his arrival here in arms:

  • King Richard II. Marshal, ask yonder knight in arms,
    Both who he is and why he cometh hither
    Thus plated in habiliments of war,
    And formally, according to our law,
    Depose him in the justice of his cause.

    Lord Marshal. What is thy name? and wherefore comest thou hither,
    Before King Richard in his royal lists?
    Against whom comest thou? and what's thy quarrel?

  • Henry IV. Harry of Hereford, Lancaster and Derby
    Am I; who ready here do stand in arms,
    To prove, by God's grace and my body's valour,

    That he is a traitor, foul and dangerous,
    To God of heaven, King Richard and to me;
    And as I truly fight, defend me heaven!

    And craves to kiss your hand and take his leave.
  • Henry IV. Lord marshal, let me kiss my sovereign's hand,
    And bow my knee before his majesty:

    That vow a long and weary pilgrimage;
    Then let us take a ceremonious leave
    And loving farewell of our several friends.

    Lord Marshal. The appellant in all duty greets your highness,
    And craves to kiss your hand and take his leave.

  • Second Herald. Here standeth Thomas Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk,
    On pain to be found false and recreant,
    Both to defend himself and to approve
    Henry of Hereford, Lancaster, and Derby,
    To God, his sovereign and to him disloyal;
    Courageously and with a free desire
    Attending but the signal to begin.
