Salisbury. The Count Melun, a noble lord of France,
Whose private with me of the Dauphin's love
Is much more general than these lines import.

Lord Bigot. To-morrow morning let us meet him then.



Salisbury. Murder, as hating what himself hath done,
Doth lay it open to urge on revenge.

Lord Bigot. Or, when he doom'd this beauty to a grave,
Found it too precious-princely for a grave.



Hubert de Burgh. Stand back, Lord Salisbury, stand back, I say;
By heaven, I think my sword's as sharp as yours:
I would not have you, lord, forget yourself,
Nor tempt the danger of my true defence;
Lest I, by marking of your rage, forget
Your worth, your greatness and nobility.

Lord Bigot. Out, dunghill! darest thou brave a nobleman?



Philip the Bastard. Thou wert better gall the devil, Salisbury:
If thou but frown on me, or stir thy foot,
Or teach thy hasty spleen to do me shame,
I'll strike thee dead. Put up thy sword betime;
Or I'll so maul you and your toasting-iron,
That you shall think the devil is come from hell.

Lord Bigot. What wilt thou do, renowned Faulconbridge?
Second a villain and a murderer?



Hubert de Burgh. Lord Bigot, I am none.

Lord Bigot. Who kill'd this prince?



Salisbury. Trust not those cunning waters of his eyes,
For villany is not without such rheum;
And he, long traded in it, makes it seem
Like rivers of remorse and innocency.
Away with me, all you whose souls abhor
The uncleanly savours of a slaughter-house;
For I am stifled with this smell of sin.

Lord Bigot. Away toward Bury, to the Dauphin there!
