But where to-morrow? Well, all's one for that.
Who hath descried the number of the foe?

Use careful watch, choose trusty sentinels.

(stage directions). [Enter NORFOLK]

Duke of Norfolk. Arm, arm, my lord; the foe vaunts in the field.



Richard III (Duke of Gloucester). Come, bustle, bustle; caparison my horse.
Call up Lord Stanley, bid him bring his power:
I will lead forth my soldiers to the plain,
And thus my battle shall be ordered:
My foreward shall be drawn out all in length,
Consisting equally of horse and foot;
Our archers shall be placed in the midst
John Duke of Norfolk, Thomas Earl of Surrey,
Shall have the leading of this foot and horse.
They thus directed, we will follow
In the main battle, whose puissance on either side
Shall be well winged with our chiefest horse.
This, and Saint George to boot! What think'st thou, Norfolk?

Duke of Norfolk. A good direction, warlike sovereign.
This found I on my tent this morning.



Richard III (Duke of Gloucester). Off with his son George's head!

Duke of Norfolk. My lord, the enemy is past the marsh
After the battle let George Stanley die.
