ACT IV. SCENE I.

A ROOM IN THE CASTLE OF NORTHAMPTON.

ARTHUR, HUBERT, AND ATTENDANTS.

Arthur. O SAVE me, Hubert, save me! my eyes are-out,
Even with the fierce looks of these bloody men.
Hub. Give me the iron, I say, and bind him here.
Arth. Alas, what need you be so boist'rous-rough?
I will not struggle, I will stand stone-still.
For heaven sake, Hubert, let me not be bound!
Nay, hear me, Hubert! drive these men away,
And I will sit as quiet as a lamb;
I will not stir, nor wince, nor speak a word,
Nor look upon the iron angerly:
Thrust but these men away, and I'll forgive you,
Whatever torment you do put me to.

Painted by James Northcote, R.A. Engraved by Robert Thew.
