(stage directions). [Enter, on the walls, the Mayor of York, and his Brethren]

Mayor of York. My lords, we were forewarned of your coming,
And shut the gates for safety of ourselves;
For now we owe allegiance unto Henry.



King Edward IV (Plantagenet). But, master mayor, if Henry be your king,
Yet Edward at the least is Duke of York.

Mayor of York. True, my good lord; I know you for no less.



Lord Hastings. Why, master mayor, why stand you in a doubt?
Open the gates; we are King Henry's friends.

Mayor of York. Ay, say you so? the gates shall then be open'd.
