1

V,4,2735

(stage directions). [Enter EXTON and Servant]

Sir Pierce of Exton. Didst thou not mark the king, what words he spake,
'Have I no friend will rid me of this living fear?'
Was it not so?


2

V,4,2739

Servant. These were his very words.

Sir Pierce of Exton. 'Have I no friend?' quoth he: he spake it twice,
And urged it twice together, did he not?


3

V,4,2742

Servant. He did.

Sir Pierce of Exton. And speaking it, he wistly look'd on me,
And who should say, 'I would thou wert the man'
That would divorce this terror from my heart;'
Meaning the king at Pomfret. Come, let's go:
I am the king's friend, and will rid his foe.

V,5,2871

(stage directions). [Dies]

Sir Pierce of Exton. As full of valour as of royal blood:
Both have I spill'd; O would the deed were good!
For now the devil, that told me I did well,
Says that this deed is chronicled in hell.
This dead king to the living king I'll bear
Take hence the rest, and give them burial here.


5

V,6,2913

(stage directions). [Enter EXTON, with persons bearing a coffin]

Sir Pierce of Exton. Great king, within this coffin I present
Thy buried fear: herein all breathless lies
The mightiest of thy greatest enemies,
Richard of Bordeaux, by me hither brought.


6

V,6,2920

Henry IV. Exton, I thank thee not; for thou hast wrought
A deed of slander with thy fatal hand
Upon my head and all this famous land.

Sir Pierce of Exton. From your own mouth, my lord, did I this deed.
