Act V. Scene IV.

Scene IV.—Another Room in the Castle.

Enter EXTON and a Servant.

Exton. Didst thou not mark the king, what
words he spake?
'Have I no friend will rid me of this living
fear?'
Was it not so?
Serv. Those were his very words.
Exton. 'Have I no friend?' quoth he: he
spake it twice,
And urg'd it twice together, did he not?
Serv. He did.
Exton. And speaking it, he wistly looked on
me,
As who should say,' I would thou wert the man
That would divorce this terror from my heart;'
Meaning the king at Pomfret. Come, let's go:
I am the king's friend, and will rid his foe.
[Exeunt.
