1

IV,1,1979

My lords, forbear this talk; here comes the king.

2

IV,3,2200

What are they that fly there?

3

IV,6,2381

My liege, it is young Henry, earl of Richmond.

4

IV,6,2407

My lord, I like not of this flight of Edward's;
For doubtless Burgundy will yield him help,
And we shall have more wars before 't be long.
As Henry's late presaging prophecy
Did glad my heart with hope of this young Richmond,
So doth my heart misgive me, in these conflicts
What may befall him, to his harm and ours:
Therefore, Lord Oxford, to prevent the worst,
Forthwith we'll send him hence to Brittany,
Till storms be past of civil enmity.

5

IV,6,2419

It shall be so; he shall to Brittany.
Come, therefore, let's about it speedily.

6

V,1,2602

At Southam I did leave him with his forces,
And do expect him here some two hours hence.

7

V,1,2606

It is not his, my lord; here Southam lies:
The drum your honour hears marcheth from Warwick.

8

V,1,2609

They are at hand, and you shall quickly know.
[March: flourish. Enter KING EDWARD IV, GLOUCESTER,]
and soldiers]

9

V,1,2673

Somerset, Somerset, for Lancaster!

10

V,2,2752

Ah, Warwick, Warwick! wert thou as we are.
We might recover all our loss again;
The queen from France hath brought a puissant power:
Even now we heard the news: ah, could'st thou fly!

11

V,2,2763

Ah, Warwick! Montague hath breathed his last;
And to the latest gasp cried out for Warwick,
And said 'Commend me to my valiant brother.'
And more he would have said, and more he spoke,
Which sounded like a clamour in a vault,
That mought not be distinguished; but at last
I well might hear, delivered with a groan,
'O, farewell, Warwick!'

12

V,4,2859

And he that will not fight for such a hope.
Go home to bed, and like the owl by day,
If he arise, be mock'd and wonder'd at.

13

V,4,2869

But he's deceived; we are in readiness.

14

V,5,2899

Nor I, but stoop with patience to my fortune.
