ACT III. SCENE II.

JUSTICE SHALLOW'S SEAT IN GLOUCESTERSHIRE.

SHALLOW, SILENCE, FALSTAFF, BARDOLPH, BOY, MOULDY, SHADOW, WART, FEEBLE, AND BULL-CALF.

Falstaff. GIVE me the spare men, and spare me the great ones. Put me a caliver into Wart's hand, Bardolph.
Bard. Hold, Wart, traverse; thus, thus, thus.
Fal. Come, manage me your caliver. So:—very well:—go to:—very good:— exceeding good.—O, give me always a little, lean, old, chapped, bald shot.—Well said, Wart; thou'rt a good scab : hold, there's a tester for thee.

Painted by James Durno. Engraved by Thomas Ryder.


ACT IV. SCENE IV.

THE PALACE AT WESTMINSTER.

KING HENRY, AND THE PRINCE OF WALES.

P. Henry. HERE is your crown:
And He that wears the crown immortally,
Long guard it yours! If I affect it more, Than as your honour, and as your renown, Let me no more from this obedience rise,— (Which my most true and inward duteous spirit Teacheth)—this prostrate and exterior bending! Heaven witness with me, when I here came in And found no course of breath within your majesty, How cold it struck my heart! If I do feign, O, let me in my present wildness die;
And never live to show th' incredulous world The noble change that I have purposed!

Painted by Josiah Boydell. Engraved by Robert Thew.
