ACT II. SCENE IV.

LONDON; THE TEMPLE GARDEN.

EARLS OF SOMERSET, SUFFOLK, AND WARWICK; RICHARD PLANTAGENET, VERNON, AND ANOTHER LAWYER.

Plantagenet. SINCE you are tongue-tied, and so loth to speak,
In dumb significants proclaim your thoughts:
Let him that is a true-born gentleman,
And stands upon the honour of his birth,
If he suppose that I have pleaded truth,
From off this brier pluck a white rose with me.
Som. Let him that is no coward, nor no flatterer,
But dare maintain the party of the truth,
Pluck a red rose from off this thorn with me.

Painted by Josiah Boydell. Engraved by John Ogborne.
