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?

IV,3,2170

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.

Second Watchman. To-morrow then belike shall be the day,
If Warwick be so near as men report.

IV,3,2178

Third Watchman. O, is it so? But why commands the king
That his chief followers lodge in towns about him,
While he himself keeps in the cold field?

Second Watchman. 'Tis the more honour, because more dangerous.

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

Second Watchman. Ay, wherefore else guard we his royal tent,
But to defend his person from night-foes?
[Enter WARWICK, CLARENCE, OXFORD, SOMERSET, and]
French soldiers, silent all]

IV,3,2192

First Watchman. Who goes there?

Second Watchman. Stay, or thou diest!
[WARWICK and the rest cry all, 'Warwick! Warwick!']
and set upon the Guard, who fly, crying, 'Arm!
arm!' WARWICK and the rest following them]
[The drum playing and trumpet sounding, reenter]
WARWICK, SOMERSET, and the rest, bringing KING
EDWARD IV out in his gown, sitting in a chair.
RICHARD and HASTINGS fly over the stage]
