Act III. Scene II.

Scene II.—The Same. Plains near Anglers.

Alarums; excursions. Enter the BASTARD,
with the DUKE OF AUSTRIA'S head.

Bast. Now, by my life, this day grows won-

And pours down mischief. Austria's head lie

Enter KING JOHN, ARTHUR, and HUBERT.
K. John. Hubert, keep this boy. Philip, make

Will bring this labour to a happy end. [Exeunt.
