ACT II. SCENE I.

LONDON.

THE PRINCE OF WALES, THE DUKE OF YORK, HIS BROTHER, DUKES OF GLOSTER AND BUCKINGHAM, CARDINAL BOURCHIER, LORD HASTINGS, THE LORD MAYOR, AND HIS TRAIN.

Buckingham. NOW, in good time, here comes the duke of York.
Prince. Richard of York! how fares our noble brother?
York. Well, my dread lord; so must I call you now.
Prince. Ay, brother; to our grief, as it is yours :
Too late he died, that might have kept that title,
Which by his death hath lost much majesty.

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


ACT IV. SCENE III.

LONDON: THE TOWER.

THE BURYING OF THE PRINCES, AS DESCRIBED BY TYRREL.

K. Richard. KIND Tyrrel! am I happy in thy news?
Tyr. If to have done the thing you gave in charge Beget your happiness, be happy then, For it is done.
K. Rich. But didst thou see them dead?
Tyr. I did, my lord.
K. Rich. And buried, gentle Tyrrel?
Tyr. The chaplain of the Tower hath buried them;
But where, to say the truth, I do not know.

Painted by James Northcote, R.A. Engraved by William Skelton.
