(stage directions). [Enter three Watchmen, to guard KING EDWARD IV's tent]

First Watchman. Come on, my masters, each man take his stand:
The king by this is set him down to sleep.



Second Watchman. What, will he not to bed?

First Watchman. Why, no; for he hath made a solemn vow
Never to lie and take his natural rest
Till Warwick or himself be quite suppress'd.



Third Watchman. But say, I pray, what nobleman is that
That with the king here resteth in his tent?

First Watchman. 'Tis the Lord Hastings, the king's chiefest friend.



Third Watchman. Ay, but give me worship and quietness;
I like it better than a dangerous honour.
If Warwick knew in what estate he stands,
'Tis to be doubted he would waken him.

First Watchman. Unless our halberds did shut up his passage.



Earl of Warwick. This is his tent; and see where stand his guard.
Courage, my masters! honour now or never!
But follow me, and Edward shall be ours.

First Watchman. Who goes there?
