  • Among the crowd i' the Abbey; where a finger
    Could not be wedged in more: I am stifled
    With the mere rankness of their joy.
  • First Gentleman. God save you, sir! where have you been broiling?

    Third Gentleman. Among the crowd i' the Abbey; where a finger
    Could not be wedged in more: I am stifled
    With the mere rankness of their joy.

  • As well as I am able. The rich stream
    Of lords and ladies, having brought the queen
    To a prepared place in the choir, fell off
    A distance from her; while her grace sat down
    To rest awhile, some half an hour or so,
    In a rich chair of state, opposing freely
    The beauty of her person to the people.
    Believe me, sir, she is the goodliest woman
    That ever lay by man: which when the people
    Had the full view of, such a noise arose
    As the shrouds make at sea in a stiff tempest,
    As loud, and to as many tunes: hats, cloaks--
    Doublets, I think,--flew up; and had their faces
    Been loose, this day they had been lost. Such joy
    I never saw before. Great-bellied women,
    That had not half a week to go, like rams
    In the old time of war, would shake the press,
    And make 'em reel before 'em. No man living
    Could say 'This is my wife' there; all were woven
    So strangely in one piece.
  • Second Gentleman. Good sir, speak it to us.

    Third Gentleman. As well as I am able. The rich stream
    Of lords and ladies, having brought the queen
    To a prepared place in the choir, fell off
    A distance from her; while her grace sat down
    To rest awhile, some half an hour or so,
    In a rich chair of state, opposing freely
    The beauty of her person to the people.
    Believe me, sir, she is the goodliest woman
    That ever lay by man: which when the people
    Had the full view of, such a noise arose

    As loud, and to as many tunes: hats, cloaks--
    Doublets, I think,--flew up; and had their faces

  • At length her grace rose, and with modest paces
    Came to the altar; where she kneel'd, and saint-like
    Cast her fair eyes to heaven and pray'd devoutly.
    Then rose again and bow'd her to the people:
    When by the Archbishop of Canterbury
    She had all the royal makings of a queen;
    As holy oil, Edward Confessor's crown,
    The rod, and bird of peace, and all such emblems
    Laid nobly on her: which perform'd, the choir,
    With all the choicest music of the kingdom,
    Together sung 'Te Deum.' So she parted,
    And with the same full state paced back again
    To York-place, where the feast is held.
  • Second Gentleman. But, what follow'd?

    Third Gentleman. At length her grace rose, and with modest paces
    Came to the altar; where she kneel'd, and saint-like
    Cast her fair eyes to heaven and pray'd devoutly.

  • I know it;
    But 'tis so lately alter'd, that the old name
    Is fresh about me.
  • First Gentleman. Sir,
    You must no more call it York-place, that's past;
    For, since the cardinal fell, that title's lost:
    'Tis now the king's, and call'd Whitehall.

    Third Gentleman. I know it;
    But 'tis so lately alter'd, that the old name
    Is fresh about me.

  • Stokesly and Gardiner; the one of Winchester,
    Newly preferr'd from the king's secretary,
    The other, London.
  • Second Gentleman. What two reverend bishops
    Were those that went on each side of the queen?

    Third Gentleman. Stokesly and Gardiner; the one of Winchester,
    Newly preferr'd from the king's secretary,
    The other, London.

  • All the land knows that:
    However, yet there is no great breach; when it comes,
    Cranmer will find a friend will not shrink from him.
  • Second Gentleman. He of Winchester
    Is held no great good lover of the archbishop's,
    The virtuous Cranmer.

    Third Gentleman. All the land knows that:
    However, yet there is no great breach; when it comes,
    Cranmer will find a friend will not shrink from him.

  • Thomas Cromwell;
    A man in much esteem with the king, and truly
    A worthy friend. The king has made him master
    O' the jewel house,
    And one, already, of the privy council.
  • Second Gentleman. Who may that be, I pray you?

    Third Gentleman. Thomas Cromwell;
    A man in much esteem with the king, and truly
    A worthy friend. The king has made him master
    O' the jewel house,
    And one, already, of the privy council.

  • Yes, without all doubt.
    Come, gentlemen, ye shall go my way, which
    Is to the court, and there ye shall be my guests:
    Something I can command. As I walk thither,
    I'll tell ye more.
  • Second Gentleman. He will deserve more.

    Third Gentleman. Yes, without all doubt.
    Come, gentlemen, ye shall go my way, which
    Is to the court, and there ye shall be my guests:
    Something I can command. As I walk thither,
    I'll tell ye more.
