not to be little, and the most harm there 2, 16/ 25
world would put her and her kindred in the 2, 16/ 26

that they had unwisely, and untruly also, broken the 2, 16/ 27

Duke of Gloucester himself and other lords, the chief 2, 17/ 3
the King so reverently, and to the Queen's friends 2, 17/ 4
these dukes of Gloucester and Buckingham came thither. Where 2, 17/ 9
to follow the King and be with him at 2, 17/ 14
cheer between these dukes and the Lord Rivers, a 2, 17/ 16
with great courtesy departed, and the Lord Rivers lodged 2, 17/ 18
part of the night. And at their rising in 2, 17/ 22
servants in their inns and lodgings about, giving them 2, 17/ 24
forth without their license. And over this, in the 2, 17/ 30
should send back again and compel to return any 2, 18/ 3

distance between the King and them, and to bring 2, 18/ 21
the King and them, and to bring them to 2, 18/ 21
lie in his power. And when he began (as 2, 18/ 22
but shortly took him and put him in ward 2, 18/ 25
put him in ward, and, that done, forthwith went 2, 18/ 25
forthwith went to horseback and took the way to 2, 18/ 26
to leap on horseback and depart forward, to leave 2, 18/ 28
strait for both companies. And as soon as they 2, 18/ 30
said, "Go before, gentlemen and yeomen; keep your rooms 2, 19/ 2
yeomen; keep your rooms." And thus in a goodly 2, 19/ 3
came to the King, and on their knees, in 2, 19/ 4
them in very joyous and amiable manner, nothing earthly 2, 19/ 5
yet. But even by and by, in his presence 2, 19/ 6
Lord Marquis his brother and the Lord Rivers his 2, 19/ 10

King and the realm, and to set variance among 2, 19/ 11

states, and to subdue and destroy the noble blood 2, 19/ 12

out the King's treasure, and sent men to the 2, 19/ 15
done for good purposes and necessary, by the whole 2, 19/ 16
for mine uncle Rivers and my brother here, that 2, 19/ 20
of your good grace." And forthwith they arrested the 2, 19/ 23
arrested the Lord Richard and Sir Thomas Vaughan, knight 2, 19/ 24
in the King's presence, and brought the King and 2, 19/ 29
and brought the King and all back unto Northampton 2, 19/ 29
took again further counsel. And there they sent away 2, 19/ 30
whom it pleased them, and set new servants about 2, 19/ 31
which dealing he wept and was nothing content, but 2, 20/ 2
but it booted not. And at dinner the Duke 2, 20/ 2
should be well enough. And he thanked the Duke 2, 20/ 5
he thanked the Duke, and prayed the messenger to 2, 20/ 5
days in ure therewith, and therefore could bear it 2, 20/ 9
sent the Lord Rivers and the Lord Richard, with 2, 20/ 11
divers places to prison, and afterward all to Pomfret 2, 20/ 13
upon himself the order and governance of the young 2, 20/ 15
whom with much honor and humble reverence he conveyed 2, 20/ 16
before the midnight following, and that in the sorest 2, 20/ 19
her brother, her son, and her other friends arrested 2, 20/ 20
her other friends arrested and sent no man wist 2, 20/ 20
Queen in great flight and heaviness, bewailing her child's 2, 20/ 26
ruin, her friends' mischance, and her own infortune, damning 2, 20/ 27
with her younger son and her daughters, out of 2, 20/ 29
the sanctuary, lodging herself and her company there in 2, 21/ 2
not far from Westminster. And for that he showed 2, 21/ 6
we have seen it." And thereupon, by and by 2, 21/ 15
it." And thereupon, by and by after the messenger 2, 21/ 15
to be called up, and so, with his own 2, 21/ 17
own household about him, and every man weaponed, he 2, 21/ 17
Great Seal with him and came, yet before day 2, 21/ 18
much heaviness, rumble, haste, and busyness; carriage and conveyance 2, 21/ 20
haste, and busyness; carriage and conveyance of her stuff 2, 21/ 20
the next way -- and some yet drew to 2, 21/ 24
the rushes, all desolate and dismayed, whom the Archbishop 2, 21/ 26
she took it for, and that he was put 2, 22/ 2
put in good hope and out of fear by 2, 22/ 2
laboreth to destroy me and my blood." "Madam," quoth 2, 22/ 5
have here with you. And here is the Great 2, 22/ 8
you, to the use and behoof of your son 2, 22/ 11
behoof of your son." And therewith he betook her 2, 22/ 11
her the Great Seal, and departed home again, yet 2, 22/ 12
was there great commotion and murmur, as well in 2, 22/ 16
divining upon this dealing. And some lords, knights, and 2, 22/ 18
And some lords, knights, and gentlemen, either for favor 2, 22/ 19
assembled in sundry companies and went, flockmeal, in harness 2, 22/ 20
went, flockmeal, in harness; and many also for that 2, 22/ 24
coronation. But then, by and by, the lords assembled 2, 22/ 27
for the Seal again, and brought it with him 2, 22/ 32
after the customable manner. And at this meeting the 2, 23/ 1
of Gloucester was sure and fastly faithful to his 2, 23/ 5
faithful to his prince, and that the Lord Rivers 2, 23/ 5
that the Lord Rivers and Lord Richard, with the 2, 23/ 6
the dukes of Gloucester and Buckingham, put under arrest 2, 23/ 7
for the King's jeopardy; and that they were also 2, 23/ 11
were also in safeguard, and there no longer should 2, 23/ 11
King's Council, indifferently examined, and by other discretions ordered 2, 23/ 14
by other discretions ordered, and either judged or appeased 2, 23/ 14
the common hurt, irritating and provoking men unto anger 2, 23/ 18
provoking men unto anger and disturbing the King's coronation 2, 23/ 18
the dukes of Gloucester and Buckingham were so near 2, 23/ 28
Buckingham were so near, and came so shortly on 2, 23/ 28
about that these lords and knights which were taken 2, 23/ 31
the dukes of Gloucester and Buckingham, and of other 2, 23/ 32
of Gloucester and Buckingham, and of other the noble 2, 24/ 1
themselves would alone demean and govern the King at 2, 24/ 2
King at their pleasure. And for the colorable proof 2, 24/ 3
therewith very well satisfied, and said it were alms 2, 24/ 15
mayor, with William White and John Mathew, sheriffs, and 2, 24/ 17
and John Mathew, sheriffs, and all the other aldermen 2, 24/ 18
him reverently at Hornsea, and riding from thence, accompanied 2, 24/ 20
of May, the first and last year of his 2, 24/ 22
the only man chosen, and thought most meet, to 2, 24/ 27
Protector of the King and his realm; so that 2, 24/ 29
was thereof greatly reproved, and the seal taken from 2, 25/ 3
seal taken from him and delivered to Doctor Russell 2, 25/ 4
Lincoln, a wise man and a good, and of 2, 25/ 6
man and a good, and of much experience, and 2, 25/ 6
and of much experience, and one of the best-learned 2, 25/ 7
his time. Divers lords and knights were appointed unto 2, 25/ 8
rooms. The Lord Chamberlain and some others kept still 2, 25/ 9
deed of the Queen, and proceeding of great malice 2, 25/ 20
him, whose special pleasure and comfort were to have 2, 25/ 23
his brother with him; and that by her done 2, 25/ 27
the lords in obloquy and murmur of the people 2, 25/ 29
partly also in recreation and moderate pleasure -- which 2, 26/ 8
far above his age. And nevertheless of estate convenient 2, 26/ 11
with his own brother? And if any man think 2, 26/ 13
things greater cannot stand. And verily, it redoundeth greatly 2, 26/ 16
of the King's Highness and of all us that 2, 26/ 17
so do for naught. And such evil opinion once 2, 26/ 22
is to wrest out, and may grow to more 2, 26/ 23
tendereth the King's weal and the honor of his 2, 26/ 27
honor of his Council and is also in favor 2, 26/ 28
is also in favor and credence with her. For 2, 26/ 28
for the King's sake and ours, and wealth of 2, 27/ 1
King's sake and ours, and wealth of the young 2, 27/ 1
King's most honorable brother and, after my sovereign lord 2, 27/ 2
ceased the slanderous rumor and obloquy now going, and 2, 27/ 4
and obloquy now going, and the hurts avoided that 2, 27/ 5
that thereof might ensue, and much rest and quiet 2, 27/ 5

be percase so obstinate, and so precisely set upon 2, 27/ 7
that neither his wise and faithful advertisement can move 2, 27/ 8
out of that prison and bring him to his 2, 27/ 10
be so well cherished and so honorably treated that 2, 27/ 12
shall, to our honor and her reproach, perceive that 2, 27/ 13
the motion was good and reasonable, and to the 2, 27/ 20
was good and reasonable, and to the King and 2, 27/ 20
and to the King and the duke his brother 2, 27/ 20
duke his brother honorable, and a thing that should 2, 27/ 21

grudge of all men, and high displeasure of God 2, 27/ 30
kept, which both kings and popes so good had 2, 28/ 1
so many had confirmed, and which holy ground was 2, 28/ 2
-- so specially hallowed and dedicated to God (for 2, 28/ 5
it presume to consecrate. "And therefore," quoth the Archbishop 2, 28/ 9
to break the immunity and liberty of that sacred 2, 28/ 11
a good man's life. And I trust," quoth he 2, 28/ 12
be with reason contented, and all thing in good 2, 28/ 15

their own evil deserving. And nevertheless, if we loved 2, 28/ 26
desired as our dishonor, and as much regard took 2, 28/ 30
doubteth, but verily believeth and knoweth that they would 2, 29/ 4

if she bide there. And we all, I think 2, 29/ 5
if she come thence and bide in such place 2, 29/ 7
that frowardness letteth her, and not fear. But go 2, 29/ 11
look for none other. And I doubt not but 2, 29/ 27
we the let thereof. And if she might happen 2, 29/ 28
away under our noses! And therefore -- I ensure 2, 29/ 32
fear convey him away. And yet will I break 2, 30/ 2
privileges of that place and others like have been 2, 30/ 3
about to break them. And in good faith -- 2, 30/ 4
of their cruel creditors. And also, if the crown 2, 30/ 11
these places be full, and which never fall from 2, 30/ 15
sanctuary should serve them. And much more manquellers, whom 2, 30/ 17
take from the altar and kill them, if their 2, 30/ 18
their murder were willful. And where it is otherwise 2, 30/ 19
compelled to go thither. And then see, on the 2, 30/ 25
rabble of thieves, murderers, and malicious heinous traitors! And 2, 30/ 28
and malicious heinous traitors! And that in two places 2, 30/ 29
that cometh of them, and ye shall find it 2, 31/ 1
both than have both. And this I say although 2, 31/ 2
as they now be, and so long have been 2, 31/ 3
-- as though God and Saint Peter were the 2, 31/ 5
living! Now unthrifts riot and run in debt, upon 2, 31/ 7
of these places; yea, and rich men run thither 2, 31/ 9
build, there they spend and bid their creditors go 2, 31/ 10
with their husbands' plate and say they dare not 2, 31/ 12
thither their stolen goods, and there live thereon. There 2, 31/ 13
steal out, they rob and reave and kill, and 2, 31/ 15
they rob and reave and kill, and come in 2, 31/ 15
and reave and kill, and come in again as 2, 31/ 15
great thank of God and no breach of the 2, 31/ 19
wot ne'er what pope and what prince more piteous 2, 31/ 20
politic hath granted it, and other men since, of 2, 31/ 21
take a pain therewith and let it a God's 2, 31/ 23
nobleman, to his honor and wealth, out of that 2, 31/ 26
the king, the law, and very nature forbiddeth in 2, 32/ 4
forbiddeth in every place, and maketh, to that regard 2, 32/ 5
is the only ground and cause of all sanctuaries 2, 32/ 8
to his king, nature and kindred proveth; whose innocence 2, 32/ 10
his tender youth proveth. And so sanctuary, as for 2, 32/ 11
that must have it. And reason, since no man 2, 32/ 14
hath yonder babe? Which, and if he had discretion 2, 32/ 17
that keep him there. And I would think without 2, 32/ 19
being able to pay." And with that, divers of 2, 32/ 27
the law of God and of the Church, the 2, 32/ 29
payment of his debts, and stolen goods to the 2, 32/ 30
goods to the owner, and only liberty reserved him 2, 32/ 31
you say very truth. And what if a man's 2, 32/ 33
church by the arm. And if nobody may be 2, 33/ 2
must let him alone. And as simple as that 2, 33/ 5
the leastwise some fear. And herein is there none 2, 33/ 8
there none at all. And verily I have often 2, 33/ 8
erst of sanctuary children. And therefore, as for the 2, 33/ 10
process stand in jeopardy. And he that taketh one 2, 33/ 17
the temporal men whole, and good part of the 2, 33/ 20
with her good will. And thereupon all the Council 2, 33/ 25
Star Chamber at Westminster. And the Lord Cardinal, leaving 2, 33/ 26
mind, to take him, and to leave her no 2, 34/ 3
her. When the Queen and these lords were come 2, 34/ 6
thought unto the Protector and unto the whole Council 2, 34/ 8
rumor of the people, and their obloquy, but also 2, 34/ 10
to the importable grief and displeasure of the King's 2, 34/ 11
was their both dishonor, and all theirs and hers 2, 34/ 14
dishonor, and all theirs and hers also, to suffer 2, 34/ 14
brother stood in danger and peril of the other 2, 34/ 15
peril of the other! And he showed her that 2, 34/ 15
as a prison -- and there should he be 2, 34/ 19
according to his estate. And she in this doing 2, 34/ 20
pleasure to the Council, and profit to herself, succor 2, 34/ 21
that were in distress, and over that (which he 2, 34/ 22
not only great comfort and honor to the King 2, 34/ 23
for their both disport and recreation; which thing the 2, 34/ 26
their youth without recreation and play cannot endure, nor 2, 34/ 28
of their both ages and estates so meetly in 2, 34/ 29
the King, his brother. And in good faith, methinketh 2, 35/ 2
sore diseased with sickness, and is so newly rather 2, 35/ 7
is, as physicians say, and as we also find 2, 35/ 10
nature, being forlabored, forwearied, and weaked, waxeth the less 2, 35/ 12
out a new surfeit. And albeit there might be 2, 35/ 13
about your children -- and so would all the 2, 35/ 19
to their both dishonor and obloquy; since there is 2, 35/ 25
dearest son then Prince and now King should, for 2, 35/ 29
should, for his honor and good order of the 2, 35/ 30
content," quoth the Queen. "And yet the case is 2, 35/ 32
was then in health, and the other is now 2, 35/ 33
he run into slander and suspicion of fraud. And 2, 36/ 1
and suspicion of fraud. And where they call it 2, 36/ 19
against my child's honor, and theirs also, that he 2, 36/ 20
shall be best kept. And that is here, while 2, 36/ 22
not to come forth and jeopard myself after others 2, 36/ 23
more upon that string. And then said he to 2, 36/ 33
examined, do well enough. And as toward her noble 2, 37/ 1
kin to the King? And how far be they 2, 37/ 6
grace it hurt not. And therefore, as for me 2, 37/ 7
yet to depart hence. And as for this gentleman 2, 37/ 8
Truly, madam," quoth he, "and the farther that you 2, 37/ 12
further to convey him. And many be there that 2, 37/ 14
malice to deserve it. And therefore they reckon no 2, 37/ 16
to send out -- and in what place could 2, 37/ 29
durst presume to break? And I trust God as 2, 38/ 1
can "deserve" no sanctuary, and therefore he cannot have 2, 38/ 2
hear him ask it, and he will. Howbeit, this 2, 38/ 22
horse from me -- and may you take my 2, 38/ 28
breach of the sanctuary. And if my privilege could 2, 39/ 1
only for his goods and his lands, discharging him 2, 39/ 4
him of the cure and safekeeping of his body 2, 39/ 5
which only both lands and goods serve. And if 2, 39/ 6
lands and goods serve. And if examples be sufficient 2, 39/ 7
which we now be (and which is now in 2, 39/ 10
now king, was born and kept in his cradle 2, 39/ 13
kept in his cradle and preserved to a more 2, 39/ 13
God long to continue. And as all you know 2, 39/ 14
my husband was banished and thrust out of his 2, 39/ 16
being great with child, and here I bore the 2, 39/ 17
I bore the Prince. And when my lord my 2, 39/ 18
husband returned safe again and had the victory, then 2, 39/ 19
to welcome him home, and from hence I brought 2, 39/ 20
him in his arms. And I pray God that 2, 39/ 21
law privilegeth the sanctuary, and the sanctuary my son 2, 39/ 27
hath his brother already, and were, if both failed 2, 39/ 29
to do to examine. And yet fear I no 2, 39/ 30
longer, the farther off, and also that she began 2, 40/ 9
she began to kindle and chafe and speak sore 2, 40/ 9
to kindle and chafe and speak sore, biting words 2, 40/ 9
words against the Protector, and such as he neither 2, 40/ 10
as he neither believed and was also loath to 2, 40/ 11
the Duke to him and to the other lords 2, 40/ 13
lay his own body and soul both in pledge 2, 40/ 14
also for his estate. And if she would give 2, 40/ 15
would forthwith depart therewithal, and shift whoso would with 2, 40/ 17
she thought that he and all others also, save 2, 40/ 19
in a great study. And forasmuch her seemed the 2, 40/ 25
some of the remnant, and the Protector himself ready 2, 40/ 26
incontinent be taken thence; and to convey him elsewhere 2, 40/ 28
conveyed out untaken -- and partly, as she thought 2, 41/ 4
best to deliver him. And over that, of the 2, 41/ 7
to look to him, and the more circumspectly to 2, 41/ 11
to them of trust. And at the last she 2, 41/ 12
duke by the hand, and said unto the lords 2, 41/ 13
My lord," quoth she, "and all my lords, I 2, 41/ 14
realm to much harm, and you to great reproach 2, 41/ 18
whatsoever any man say. And I doubt not also 2, 41/ 21
been the brother's bane. And may the nephews be 2, 41/ 27
while they be asunder, and each of their lives 2, 41/ 28
body. Keep one safe and both be sure; and 2, 41/ 29
and both be sure; and nothing for them both 2, 41/ 30
here I deliver him, and his brother in him 2, 41/ 32
them both, before God and the world. Faithful ye 2, 42/ 1
that wot I well; and I know well you 2, 42/ 2
you be wise. Power and strength to keep him 2, 42/ 2
help in this cause. And if ye cannot elsewhere 2, 42/ 4
put in you ever, and for the trust that 2, 42/ 6
as far too little." And therewith she said unto 2, 42/ 8
shall kiss together again." And therewith she kissed him 2, 42/ 10
therewith she kissed him and blessed him, turned her 2, 42/ 11
him, turned her back and wept, and went her 2, 42/ 11
her back and wept, and went her way, leaving 2, 42/ 12
When the Lord Cardinal and these other lords with 2, 42/ 13
him in his arms and kissed him, with these 2, 42/ 16
all my very heart." And he said, in that 2, 42/ 17
bishop's palace at Paul's, and from thence through the 2, 42/ 21
to certain other men and also chiefly to the 2, 42/ 26
even from the beginning, and some of the Protector's 2, 42/ 30
imprisoned the Queen's kinsfolk, and gotten both her sons 2, 43/ 5
meet for the matter, and especially to the Duke 2, 43/ 7
Duke by subtle folks, and such as were their 2, 43/ 10
for his kinsfolk's sakes, and that if he were 2, 43/ 12
was grievous unto him. And that with repenting the 2, 43/ 16
who with his brother and his kinsfolk he saw 2, 43/ 19
beck destroy them all; and that it were no 2, 43/ 21
any new enterprise attempted. And that it was likely 2, 43/ 22
spies for the Duke, and trains to catch him 2, 43/ 24
be against him -- and that, peradventure, from them 2, 43/ 25
the state of things and the dispositions of men 2, 43/ 26
might fear. These things and suchlike, being beaten into 2, 43/ 28
forth in the same; and since he had once 2, 43/ 30
would stoutly go through. And therefore to this wicked 2, 43/ 31
avoided, he bent himself, and went through, and determined 2, 43/ 33
himself, and went through, and determined that since the 2, 43/ 33
to make him king, and that the Protector's only 2, 44/ 2
marry the Duke's daughter, and that the Protector should 2, 44/ 3
claimed as his inheritance, and could never obtain it 2, 44/ 5
of the King's treasure and of his household stuff 2, 44/ 7
of his household stuff. And when they were thus 2, 44/ 8
would have it seem. And that they might turn 2, 44/ 10
turn both the eyes and minds of men from 2, 44/ 10
solemnity. But the Protector and the Duke, after that 2, 44/ 15
Ely, the Lord Stanley, and the Lord Hastings (then 2, 44/ 17
other noblemen, to commune and devise about the coronation 2, 44/ 19
place contriving the contrary, and to make the Protector 2, 44/ 20
were adhibited very few, and they very secret, yet 2, 44/ 22
yet began there, here and there about, some manner 2, 44/ 22
were close. For little and little all folk withdrew 2, 44/ 31
withdrew from the Tower and drew to Crosby's Place 2, 44/ 31
old servants from him and set new about him 2, 45/ 5
but wise men also and some lords eke, to 2, 45/ 8
to mark the matter and muse thereon -- so 2, 45/ 9
Derby, wisely mistrusted it, and said unto the Lord 2, 45/ 11
his near, secret counsel and whom he very familiarly 2, 45/ 20
he very familiarly used, and in his most weighty 2, 45/ 21
laws of this land, and, by the special favor 2, 45/ 26
Chamberlain, in good authority, and much rule bore in 2, 45/ 27
trust, the Lord Stanley and he had departed, with 2, 45/ 31
with divers other lords, and broken all the dance 2, 46/ 1
intended where Catesby was. And of truth, the Protector 2, 46/ 7
of truth, the Protector and the Duke of Buckingham 2, 46/ 8
unto the Lord Hastings, and kept him much in 2, 46/ 9
him much in company. And undoubtedly the Protector loved 2, 46/ 9
Protector loved him well, and loath was to have 2, 46/ 10
found him so fast, and heard him speak so 2, 46/ 15
durst no further break. And of truth, the Lord 2, 46/ 17
have in the matter. And therefore he, fearing lest 2, 46/ 18
hastily to rid him. And much the rather for 2, 46/ 22
him to be partner and one special contriver of 2, 46/ 25
assembled in the Tower and there sat in council 2, 46/ 29
approached that the pageants and subtleties were in making 2, 46/ 31
were in making day and night at Westminster, and 2, 46/ 32
and night at Westminster, and much victual killed therefor 2, 46/ 32
clock, saluting them courteously and excusing himself that he 2, 47/ 3
been asleep that day. And after a little talking 2, 47/ 5
your pleasure as that." And therewith, in all the 2, 47/ 9
lords fast in communing, and thereupon, praying them to 2, 47/ 11
little while, departed thence. And soon after one hour 2, 47/ 14
one hour, between ten and eleven, he returned into 2, 47/ 15
knitting the brows, frowning and frothing and gnawing on 2, 47/ 17
brows, frowning and frothing and gnawing on his lips 2, 47/ 17
gnawing on his lips, and so sat him down 2, 47/ 17
the lords much dismayed and sore marveling of this 2, 47/ 18
manner of sudden change, and what thing should him 2, 47/ 19
to have, that compass and imagine the destruction of 2, 47/ 22
blood unto the King, and Protector of his royal 2, 47/ 23
of his royal person and his realm?" At this 2, 47/ 23
boldest with him, answered and said that they were 2, 47/ 27
traitors, whatsoever they were. And all the others affirmed 2, 47/ 28
my brother's wife! -- and others with her," meaning 2, 47/ 30
taking of her kindred and of their putting to 2, 48/ 3
what wise that sorceress and that other witch of 2, 48/ 7
have by their sorcery and witchcraft wasted my body 2, 48/ 9
witchcraft wasted my body." And therewith he plucked up 2, 48/ 9
a wearish, withered arm and small -- as it 2, 48/ 11
it was never other. And thereupon every man's mind 2, 48/ 11
about any such folly; and also, if she would 2, 48/ 15
husband, had most loved. And also, no man was 2, 48/ 17
to his friend) answered and said, "Certainly, my lord 2, 48/ 23
I ween, with "if's and with "and's! I tell 2, 48/ 25
they have so done; and that I will make 2, 48/ 26
on thy body, traitor!" And therewith, as in a 2, 48/ 26
Therewith, a door clapped, and in came there rushing 2, 48/ 29
the chamber might hold. And anon the Protector said 2, 48/ 30
traitor!" quoth the Protector. And another let fly at 2, 49/ 1
shrank at the stroke and fell under the table 2, 49/ 3
the Protector bade speed and shrive him apace; "for 2, 49/ 12
a priest at adventure and made a short shrift 2, 49/ 14
chapel within the Tower, and his head laid down 2, 49/ 21
long log of timber and there stricken off, and 2, 49/ 22
and there stricken off, and afterward his body, with 2, 49/ 23
requiring him to rise and ride away with him 2, 49/ 32
about both their shoulders. And forasmuch as the Protector 2, 50/ 5
much to such trifles, and hath such faith in 2, 50/ 11
if we were caught and brought back (as friends 2, 50/ 16
in going than biding. And if we should needs 2, 50/ 19
fault or faint heart. And therefore go to thy 2, 50/ 22
to thy master, man, and commend me to him 2, 50/ 22
commend me to him, and pray him be merry 2, 50/ 23
pray him be merry and have no fear; for 2, 50/ 23
sir," quoth the messenger, and went his way. Certain 2, 50/ 25
of an old rite and custom observed as a 2, 50/ 30
man at that time, and now of great authority 2, 51/ 4
to stay his horse and common a while with 2, 51/ 6
street, broke his tale and said merrily to him 2, 51/ 7
a priest yet" -- and therewith he laughed upon 2, 51/ 9
other what he meant, and so little mistrusted, that 2, 51/ 11
of his own name. And of their meeting in 2, 51/ 16
into the King's indignation, and stood in great fear 2, 51/ 22
great fear of himself. And forasmuch as he now 2, 51/ 28
while he was therein. And therefore he said, "Ah 2, 52/ 1
that remember I well; and thanked be God they 2, 52/ 3
know else as yet, and more shall shortly." That 2, 52/ 6
that were taken before and should that day be 2, 52/ 7
I did when thou and I met here. And 2, 52/ 10
and I met here. And lo how the world 2, 52/ 10
to hear more hereafter), and I never in my 2, 52/ 12
he lost his life, and that within two hours 2, 52/ 15
-- a good knight and a gentle, of great 2, 52/ 17
living somewhat dissolute; plain and open to his enemy 2, 52/ 19
open to his enemy and secret to his friend 2, 52/ 20
that of good heart and courage fore-studied no perils 2, 52/ 21
perils; a loving man, and passing well-beloved; very faithful 2, 52/ 21
passing well-beloved; very faithful, and trusty enough, trusting too 2, 52/ 22
swiftly through the city, and so forth farther about 2, 52/ 24
city into the Tower; and at their coming, himself 2, 52/ 27
necessity had constrained them. And then the Protector showed 2, 52/ 30
that the Lord Chamberlain and others of his conspiracy 2, 52/ 31
have suddenly destroyed him and the Duke there, the 2, 53/ 1
day, in the Council. And what they intended further 2, 53/ 2
came next to hand; and so had God helped 2, 53/ 6
would have done it. And this he required them 2, 53/ 7
slain the Lord Protector and the Duke of Buckingham 2, 53/ 16
sitting in the Council, and after to have taken 2, 53/ 17
to rule the King and the realm at their 2, 53/ 18
realm at their pleasure, and thereby to pill and 2, 53/ 18
and thereby to pill and spoil whom they list 2, 53/ 19
whom they list, uncontrolled. And much matter was there 2, 53/ 19
diminishing of his honor and to the universal hurt 2, 53/ 22
evil company, sinister procuring, and ungracious example, as well 2, 53/ 23
in the vicious living and inordinate abusion of his 2, 53/ 25
both with many others and also specially with Shore's 2, 53/ 25
whom he lay nightly, and namely the night last 2, 53/ 27
of the King's Highness and of his honorable and 2, 53/ 30
and of his honorable and faithful Council, both for 2, 53/ 31
his falsely conceived treason, and also lest the delaying 2, 53/ 32
his conspiracy, to gather and assemble themselves together in 2, 53/ 34
rest in good quiet and peace. Now was this 2, 54/ 3
that he was beheaded, and it was so curiously 2, 54/ 4
was so curiously indited, and so fair written in 2, 54/ 4
well a set hand, and therewith of itself so 2, 54/ 5
time between his death and the proclaiming could scant 2, 54/ 7
been but in paper and scribbled forth in haste 2, 54/ 9
of chance standing by, and comparing the shortness of 2, 54/ 10
cast away for haste." And a merchant answered him 2, 54/ 12
prophecy. Now then, by and by, as it were 2, 54/ 13
dwelled not with her), and spoiled her of all 2, 54/ 16
three thousand marks -- and sent her body to 2, 54/ 17
her body to prison. And when he had a 2, 54/ 18
about to bewitch him and that she was of 2, 54/ 19
world wist was true, and that nevertheless every man 2, 54/ 22
naught of her body. And for this cause -- 2, 54/ 24
goodly, continent prince, clean and faultless of himself, sent 2, 54/ 25
she went in countenance and pace demure, so womanly 2, 54/ 30
pace demure, so womanly, and albeit she were out 2, 54/ 30
went she so fair and lovely, namely while the 2, 54/ 31
curious of her soul. And many good folk, also 2, 55/ 3
that hated her living and glad were to see 2, 55/ 3
friended, honestly brought up, and very well married, saving 2, 55/ 8
an honest citizen, young and goodly and of good 2, 55/ 10
citizen, young and goodly and of good substance. But 2, 55/ 10
gay apparel, ease, pleasure, and other wanton wealth -- 2, 55/ 15
was an honest man and one that could his 2, 55/ 18
faithfulness. Proper she was and fair -- nothing in 2, 55/ 23
she old, lean, withered, and dried up, nothing left 2, 55/ 30
left but rivelled skin and hard bone. And yet 2, 55/ 31
skin and hard bone. And yet, being even such 2, 55/ 31
her visage might guess and devise which parts how 2, 55/ 32
proper wit had she, and could both read well 2, 56/ 2
could both read well and write; merry in company 2, 56/ 3
merry in company, ready and quick of answer, neither 2, 56/ 3
taunting -- without displeasure and not without disport. The 2, 56/ 4
were somewhat greater personages, and nevertheless of their humility 2, 56/ 10
content to be nameless and to forbear the praise 2, 56/ 11
many a man's comfort and relief. Where the King 2, 56/ 16
displeasure, she would mitigate and appease his mind; where 2, 56/ 16
she got men remission. And finally, in many weighty 2, 56/ 19
or very small rewards, and those rather gay than 2, 56/ 21
to be sued unto and to show what she 2, 56/ 23
for that wanton women and wealthy be not always 2, 56/ 24
to be written of and set among the remembrances 2, 56/ 27
more beggarly condition, unfriended and worn out of acquaintance 2, 56/ 31
after as great suit and seeking-to with all those 2, 57/ 1
write it in marble; and whoso doth us a 2, 57/ 5

opinion of their learning, and had no scrupulous conscience 2, 58/ 21
to the Mayor -- and Friar Penker, Provincial of 2, 58/ 23
fain to leave off and come down in the 2, 59/ 3
sermon lost his honesty and soon after his life 2, 59/ 5
forced for no shame, and so it harmed him 2, 59/ 7
less. Howbeit, some doubt, and many think, that Penker 2, 59/ 8
was all the labor and study in the devise 2, 59/ 15
to depose the Prince and accept the Protector for 2, 59/ 17
But the chief thing and the weighty of all 2, 59/ 18
the Duke of York, and the Prince by him 2, 59/ 21
point should be less, and more favorably, handled -- 2, 59/ 29
not even fully plain and directly, but that the 2, 59/ 29
should be openly declared, and enforced to the uttermost 2, 59/ 33
the uttermost. The color and pretext whereof cannot be 2, 59/ 34

requisite both for himself and for the realm), he 2, 60/ 5
unto Spain, to entreat and conclude a marriage between 2, 60/ 8
marriage between King Edward and the king's daughter of 2, 60/ 8
the parties so toward and willing that he speedily 2, 60/ 10
Alban's against King Edward. And little while enjoyed he 2, 60/ 22
slain. After which done, and the Earl of Warwick 2, 60/ 24
when the King beheld and heard her speak -- 2, 61/ 5
of stature, well made, and very wise -- he 2, 61/ 7
waxed enamored on her. And taking her afterward secretly 2, 61/ 8
did she so wisely, and with so good manner 2, 61/ 16
with so good manner, and words so well set 2, 61/ 17
desire than quenched it. And finally, after many a 2, 61/ 18
a meeting, much wooing, and many great promises, she 2, 61/ 18
off for a word. And in conclusion she showed 2, 61/ 23
much esteemed her continence and chastity that he set 2, 61/ 27
the stead of possession and riches. And thus taking 2, 61/ 28
of possession and riches. And thus taking counsel of 2, 61/ 28
haste to marry her. And after he was thus 2, 61/ 29
he was thus appointed, and had between them twain 2, 61/ 30
of his other friends, and that in such manner 2, 61/ 33
was his honor, profit, and surety also, to marry 2, 62/ 3
estate by the affinity, and great possibility of increase 2, 62/ 4
of his possessions -- and that he could not 2, 62/ 5
in such wise frustrated and his appointments deluded. And 2, 62/ 8
and his appointments deluded. And she said also that 2, 62/ 8
than the master's wisdom. And yet therein, she said 2, 62/ 14
is between no merchant and his own maid so 2, 62/ 15
as between the king and this widow. In whose 2, 62/ 16
she, "for your estate, and maidens also; whereas the 2, 62/ 19
an unsitting thing -- and a very blemish, and 2, 62/ 26
and a very blemish, and high disparagement -- to 2, 62/ 26
out of her rule. And albeit he would gladly 2, 63/ 3
of his own land. And yet if outward alliance 2, 63/ 13
should haply never love, and for the possibility of 2, 63/ 18
possessions lose the fruit and pleasure of this that 2, 63/ 19
wived against his appetite. "And I doubt not," quoth 2, 63/ 25
point comparable with her. And therefore I let not 2, 63/ 26
where it liketh me. And I am sure that 2, 63/ 28
more trouble than profit. And we have already title 2, 64/ 4
as sufficeth to get and keep well in one 2, 64/ 5
she is a widow and hath already children -- 2, 64/ 10
I am a bachelor and have some too! And 2, 64/ 11
and have some too! And so each of us 2, 64/ 11
likely to be barren. And therefore, madam, I pray 2, 64/ 12
that shall please you. And as for the bigamy 2, 64/ 17
these words nothing appeased, and seeing the King so 2, 64/ 20
to disturb this marriage, and rather to help that 2, 64/ 23
to Dame Elizabeth Lucy, and her husband before God 2, 64/ 29
same were clearly purged and the truth well and 2, 64/ 32
and the truth well and openly testified. Whereupon Dame 2, 64/ 33
Lucy was sent for. And albeit that she was 2, 64/ 34
by the King's mother and many others put in 2, 64/ 34
would have married her. And that if it had 2, 65/ 4
King with great feast and honorable solemnity married Dame 2, 65/ 8
married Dame Elizabeth Grey, and her crowned queen that 2, 65/ 9
was his enemy's wife and many times had prayed 2, 65/ 11
that for very anger and disdain he at his 2, 65/ 14
puissance against the King, and came so fast upon 2, 65/ 16
to void the realm and flee into Holland for 2, 65/ 17
took out of prison and set up again King 2, 65/ 27
King Edward deposed -- and that muchwhat by the 2, 65/ 29

and a courageous warrior, and of such strength, what 2, 65/ 30

that he made kings and put down kings almost 2, 65/ 32
almost at his pleasure, and not impossible to have 2, 65/ 32
conclusion King Edward returned, and, with much less number 2, 66/ 2
estates of that party, and so stably attained the 2, 66/ 5

and so the Prince and all his children bastards 2, 66/ 23
grace that God giveth and secretly infoundeth in right 2, 66/ 29
children lacked that grace, and for the punishment of 2, 66/ 31

ignorance of the world and the truth hid from 2, 66/ 34
rightful inheritors be restored and the bastard slip pulled 2, 67/ 4
can be rooted deep. And when he had laid 2, 67/ 5
laid for the proof and confirmation of this sentence 2, 67/ 6
of the Old Testament and other ancient histories, then 2, 67/ 7
to the Lord Protector," and declared the title of 2, 67/ 9
unto Dame Elizabeth Lucy, and so his children bastards 2, 67/ 15
so his children bastards. And besides that, neither King 2, 67/ 22

in the preacher's mouth, and should have moved the 2, 68/ 4
specially chosen by God and, in manner, by miracle 2, 68/ 6
should prevent those words, and the Doctor, fearing that 2, 68/ 9

preacher got him home and never after durst look 2, 68/ 27

days after, he withered and consumed away. Then on 2, 68/ 34
accompanied with divers lords and knights, more than haply 2, 69/ 3
message that they brought. And there -- in the 2, 69/ 4
the hustings), the Mayor and all the aldermen being 2, 69/ 5
the Duke stood up, and (as he was neither 2, 69/ 8
he was neither unlearned and of nature marvelously well-spoken 2, 69/ 9

among so much pilling and polling, among so many 2, 69/ 26
among so many taxes and tallages, of which there 2, 69/ 26
there was never end and oftentimes no need -- 2, 69/ 27
rather grew of riot and unreasonable waste than any 2, 69/ 28

garland, keeping it, losing and winning again, it hath 2, 71/ 17
a good town ransacked and spoiled by them that 2, 71/ 22

men for their money, and great men for their 2, 71/ 25
bore always least rule, and more suit was in 2, 71/ 31
Shore's wife, a vile and abominable strumpet, than to 2, 71/ 32
simple woman was well-named and honest till the King 2, 72/ 1
for his wanton lust and sinful affection bereft her 2, 72/ 2

greedy appetite was insatiable, and everywhere over all the 2, 72/ 6
importunately pursue his appetite and have her; to the 2, 72/ 11
many a good woman, and great dolor to their 2, 72/ 12

as singular cause well and kindly to treat as 2, 72/ 22
as his special chamber and the specially well-renowned city 2, 72/ 24
without your great cost and sundry perils and jeopardies 2, 72/ 27
cost and sundry perils and jeopardies in all his 2, 72/ 27

can better tell it, and of whom, I am 2, 73/ 1
will better believe it. And reason is that it 2, 73/ 2
a man so cunning and so wise that no 2, 73/ 5

and thereto so good and virtuous that he would 2, 73/ 6
last past, the right and title that the most 2, 73/ 10

be matched with his, and the mingling of whose 2, 73/ 19
of which lawful coupling, and also of other things 2, 73/ 23
signified than fully explained, and which things shall not 2, 73/ 24
the crown of England and of France is by 2, 73/ 32

of this land, devolved and come unto the most 2, 74/ 1
Which thing well considered, and the great knightly prowess 2, 74/ 4
singularly abound, the nobles and commons also of this 2, 74/ 5
also of this realm (and especially of the north 2, 74/ 6

upon him the guiding and governance of this realm 2, 74/ 11

well perceiveth the labor and study both of mind 2, 74/ 13

of so sad age, and thereto of so great 2, 74/ 21
not but ye will; and nevertheless I heartily pray 2, 74/ 26
so good a king, and unto yourselves special commodity 2, 74/ 30
you the more prone and benevolently minded toward his 2, 74/ 32
Duke had said -- and looked that the people 2, 75/ 1
-- all was hushed and mute, and not one 2, 75/ 3
was hushed and mute, and not one word answered 2, 75/ 3
Duke was marvelously abashed, and taking the Mayor nearer 2, 75/ 5
if that will help." And by and by, somewhat 2, 75/ 9
will help." And by and by, somewhat louder, he 2, 75/ 9
again in other order and other words, so well 2, 75/ 10
other words, so well and ornately, and nevertheless so 2, 75/ 10
so well and ornately, and nevertheless so evidently and 2, 75/ 10
and nevertheless so evidently and plainly, with voice, gesture 2, 75/ 11
plainly, with voice, gesture, and countenance so comely and 2, 75/ 11
and countenance so comely and so convenient, that every 2, 75/ 12
marveled that heard him, and thought that they never 2, 75/ 13
drew about the Duke and said that the people 2, 75/ 19
mouth of the city; and haply to him they 2, 75/ 21
Fitzwilliam, a sad man and an honest, which was 2, 75/ 25
the people before -- and loath was with that 2, 75/ 26
as the Duke's words and no part his own 2, 75/ 30
rounded unto the Mayor and said, "This is a 2, 76/ 1
a marvelous obstinate silence"; and therewith he turned unto 2, 76/ 1
lords of this realm and the commons of other 2, 76/ 4
such love bear you, and so much set by 2, 76/ 5
partners is your weal and honor; which, as it 2, 76/ 7

Duke's servants and Nashfield's, and others belonging to the 2, 76/ 17
Protector, with some apprentices and lads that thrust into 2, 76/ 17
Richard! King Richard!" -- and threw up their caps 2, 76/ 20
in token of joy. And they that stood before 2, 76/ 21
but nothing they said. And when the Duke and 2, 76/ 24
And when the Duke and the Mayor saw this 2, 76/ 24
it to their purpose and said it was a 2, 76/ 26
was a goodly cry and a joyful to hear 2, 76/ 27
unto your great weal and commodity, we require ye 2, 76/ 31
tomorrow go with us, and we with you, unto 2, 76/ 32
him in manner fore-remembered." And therewith the lords came 2, 77/ 1
the lords came down, and the company dissolved and 2, 77/ 1
and the company dissolved and departed, the more part 2, 77/ 2
were not very merry; and some of those that 2, 77/ 3
with all the aldermen and chief commoners of the 2, 77/ 8
him, besides many knights and other gentlemen. And thereupon 2, 77/ 13
knights and other gentlemen. And thereupon the Duke sent 2, 77/ 13
there of a great and honorable company, to move 2, 77/ 15
as though he doubted and partly distrusted the coming 2, 77/ 18
this unto the Mayor and others, that they might 2, 77/ 21
such loving message again, and therewith so humbly besought 2, 77/ 23
of his chamber -- and yet not down unto 2, 77/ 26
they might see him and speak to him; as 2, 77/ 28
wist what they meant. And thereupon the Duke of 2, 77/ 29
Grace would pardon them and license them to purpose 2, 77/ 31
very gentle of himself and also longed sore to 2, 78/ 5
Duke had this leave and pardon to speak, then 2, 78/ 9
show him their intent and purpose, with all the 2, 78/ 10
ye before have heard, and finally to beseech His 2, 78/ 12
of his accustomed goodness and zeal unto the realm 2, 78/ 13
behold the long-continued distress and decay of the same 2, 78/ 14
decay of the same and to set his gracious 2, 78/ 14
hands to the redress and amendment thereof, by taking 2, 78/ 16
upon him the crown and governance of this realm 2, 78/ 17
according to his right and title lawfully descended unto 2, 78/ 20
lawfully descended unto him, and to the laud of 2, 78/ 20
profit of the land, and unto His Grace so 2, 78/ 21
much the more honor and less pain in that 2, 78/ 22
looked very strangely thereat, and answered that all were 2, 78/ 25
bore unto King Edward and his children, that so 2, 78/ 27
his own ambitious mind and device to depose the 2, 78/ 32
to depose the Prince and take himself the crown 2, 78/ 33
perceived much more labor and pain than pleasure to 2, 78/ 35
them for the love and hearty favor they bore 2, 79/ 3
his sake to give and bear the same to 2, 79/ 4
under whom he was and would be content to 2, 79/ 5
be content to live; and with his labor and 2, 79/ 6
and with his labor and counsel, as far as 2, 79/ 6
occasion of the contrary, and of new intended to 2, 79/ 10
as with the Mayor and Recorder of London. And 2, 79/ 14
and Recorder of London. And after that, upon like 2, 79/ 14
upon like pardon desired and obtained, he showed aloud 2, 79/ 15
must they needs seek and should not fail to 2, 79/ 24
it or else he and his both go from 2, 79/ 28
said unto the lords and commons: "Since we perceive 2, 79/ 29
govern against their wills; and we well also perceive 2, 79/ 32
your election, the nobles and commons of this realm 2, 80/ 3
effectual: we be content, and agree favorably to incline 2, 80/ 5
incline to your petition and request, and, according to 2, 80/ 6
your petition and request, and, according to the same 2, 80/ 6
the royal estate, preeminence, and kingdom of the two 2, 80/ 8
two noble realms England and France -- the one 2, 80/ 9
day forward by us and our heirs to rule 2, 80/ 10
heirs to rule, govern, and defend; the other, by 2, 80/ 10
other, by God's grace and your good help, to 2, 80/ 11
help, to get again and subdue, and establish forever 2, 80/ 11
get again and subdue, and establish forever in due 2, 80/ 12
King Richard! King Richard!" And then the lords went 2, 80/ 17
from that time called), and the people departed, talking 2, 80/ 18
But much they talked and marveled of the manner 2, 80/ 20
some excused that again and said, "All must be 2, 80/ 25
in good order, though. And men must sometimes for 2, 80/ 26
purposeth to be one, and though he pay for 2, 80/ 28
pay for nothing else. And yet must he be 2, 80/ 29
be bishop or no, and he must twice say 2, 80/ 30
must twice say nay, and at the third time 2, 80/ 30
by his own will. And in a stage play 2, 80/ 31
he hath with him, and call him by his 2, 81/ 3

marring of the play." And so they said that 2, 81/ 6
were, stage plays -- and for the more part 2, 81/ 7
be but the lookers-on. And they that wise be 2, 81/ 8
that sometimes step up and play with them, when 2, 81/ 9
they disorder the play and do themselves no good 2, 81/ 10

Protector left that name and took himself as king 2, 84/ 28
abashed, began to sigh and said, "Alas! I would 2, 85/ 1

by force the featherbed and pillows hard unto their 2, 85/ 20

out upon the bed, and fetched Sir James to 2, 85/ 27
haste to King Richard, and showed him all the 2, 86/ 1

Very truth is it, and well-known, that at such 2, 86/ 9
Henry VII, both Dighton and he were examined, and 2, 86/ 11
