I,4,481

Boy. Father, I warrant you; take you no care;
I'll never trouble you, if I may spy them.
[Exit]
[Enter, on the turrets, SALISBURY and TALBOT,]
GLANSDALE, GARGRAVE, and others]

Earl of Salisbury. Talbot, my life, my joy, again return'd!
How wert thou handled being prisoner?
Or by what means got'st thou to be released?
Discourse, I prithee, on this turret's top.


2

I,4,496

Lord Talbot/Earl of Shrewsbury. The Duke of Bedford had a prisoner
Call'd the brave Lord Ponton de Santrailles;
For him was I exchanged and ransomed.
But with a baser man of arms by far
Once in contempt they would have barter'd me:
Which I, disdaining, scorn'd; and craved death,
Rather than I would be so vile esteem'd.
In fine, redeem'd I was as I desired.
But, O! the treacherous Fastolfe wounds my heart,
Whom with my bare fists I would execute,
If I now had him brought into my power.

Earl of Salisbury. Yet tell'st thou not how thou wert entertain'd.

I,4,516

(stage directions). [Enter the Boy with a linstock]

Earl of Salisbury. I grieve to hear what torments you endured,
But we will be revenged sufficiently
Now it is supper-time in Orleans:
Here, through this grate, I count each one
and view the Frenchmen how they fortify:
Let us look in; the sight will much delight thee.
Sir Thomas Gargrave, and Sir William Glansdale,
Let me have your express opinions
Where is best place to make our battery next.


4

I,4,530

(stage directions). [Here they shoot. SALISBURY and GARGRAVE fall]

Earl of Salisbury. O Lord, have mercy on us, wretched sinners!
