How I may
be deliver'd of these woes,
K.Philip. Bind up those treffes ; 0, what love I note:
Conf. To England, if you will.
Conf. Yes, that I will; and wherefore will I do it?
Pand. You hold too heinous a respect of grief:
Const. Grief fills the room up of
do, I will not keep this form upon or. y: head,
(Tearing off her head-cloetbs. When there is such disorder in my wit. O Lord, my boy, my Arthur, my fair fon ! My life, my joy, my food, my all the world ! My widow-comfort, and niy sorrow's cure ! [Exit,
K.Ph. I fear some outrage, and I'll follow her. [E.xit.
Lewis. There's nothing in this world can make me joy;
Pand. Before the curing of a strong disease,
Lewis. All days of głosy, joy, and happiness.
Pand. If you had won it, certạinly, you had. No, no; when fortune means to men molt good, She looks upon them with a threat’ning eye. "Ti: strange to think how much King John hath loft. In this, which he accounts so clearly won. Are not you griev'd, that Arthur is his prisoner ?
Lewis. As heartily, as he is glad, he hath him.
Pand. Your mind is all as youthful as your blood. Now hear me speak with a prophetick fpirit; For ev’n the breach of what I mean to speak Shall blow eachdust, each straw, each little rub, Out of the path which thall directly lead Thy foot to England's throne ; and therefore mark,
John hath seiz'd Arthur, and it cannot be
Lewis. But what shall I gain by young Arthur's fall*
Pand. You, in the right of Lady Blanch your wife, May then make all the claim that Arthur did.
Lirwis. And lose it, life and all, as Arthur did.
Pand. How green you are and fresh in this old world ? John lays you plots; the times conspire with you ;For he, that steeps his safety in true blood, Shall find but bloody.safety and untrue.

Lewis. May be, he will not touch young Arthur's lite is But hold himself safe in his prisonment.
Pand. O Sir; when he shall hear of your approach, . If that young Arthur be not gone already, Ex’n at this news he dies : and then the hearts Of all his people shall Tevolt from him, And kiss the lips of unacquainted change ; And pick strong matter of revolt and wrathy Out of the bloody fingers' ends of John, Methinks, I see this hurly all on tcot;
And 0, what better matter breeds for you
Lewis. Strong reason makes (trong actions: let us go;, If you fay ay, the King will not say no. [Exeuni.
Enter Hubert and Executioner.
HU B.ERT. EAT HLAT me these irons hot, and, look, thou stand Within the arras ;
when I strike
foot. Upon the bofom of the ground, rush forth ; And hind the boy, which you shall find with me, Fast to the chair: be heedful; hence, and watch.
Exe. I hope your warrant will bear out the deed.
Hub. Uncleanly fcruples ! fear not you; look toʻt.Young lad, come forth; I have to say with you.
Arth. Good morrow, Hubert.
Arth. As little Prince (having so great a title...
Hub. Indeed, I have been merrier,
Arth. Mercy on me!
