I,3,462

Lord (Earl) Rivers. Have patience, madam: there's no doubt his majesty
Will soon recover his accustom'd health.

Lord Grey. In that you brook it in, it makes him worse:
Therefore, for God's sake, entertain good comfort,
And cheer his grace with quick and merry words.

To be your comforter when he is gone.

Lord (Earl) Rivers. Sir Richard Ratcliff, let me tell thee this:
To-day shalt thou behold a subject die
For truth, for duty, and for loyalty.

Lord Grey. God keep the prince from all the pack of you!
A knot you are of damned blood-suckers!

III,3,1933

Lord (Earl) Rivers. O Pomfret, Pomfret! O thou bloody prison,
Fatal and ominous to noble peers!
Within the guilty closure of thy walls
Richard the second here was hack'd to death;
And, for more slander to thy dismal seat,
We give thee up our guiltless blood to drink.

Lord Grey. Now Margaret's curse is fall'n upon our heads,
For standing by when Richard stabb'd her son.

Let me sit heavy on thy soul to-morrow,
Rivers. that died at Pomfret! despair, and die!

Lord Grey. [To KING RICHARD III]
Think upon Grey, and let thy soul despair!
