[Enter EXTON and Servant]
- Sir Pierce of Exton. Didst thou not mark the king, what words he spake,
'Have I no friend will rid me of this living fear?'
Was it not so?
- Servant. These were his very words.
- Sir Pierce of Exton. 'Have I no friend?' quoth he: he spake it twice,
And urged it twice together, did he not?
- Sir Pierce of Exton. And speaking it, he wistly look'd on me,
And who should say, 'I would thou wert the man'
That would divorce this terror from my heart;'
Meaning the king at Pomfret. Come, let's go:
I am the king's friend, and will rid his foe.
