- Vernon as prisoners .
King Henry IV1 - 10
- Thus ever did rebellion find rebuke .
- Ill - spirited Worcester , did not we send grace ,
- Pardon , and terms of love to all of you ?
- And wouldst thou turn our offers contrary ?
- Misuse the tenor of thy kinsman’s trust ?
- Three knights upon our party slain today ,
- A noble earl , and many a creature else
- Had been alive this hour ,
- If like a Christian thou hadst truly borne
- Betwixt our armies true intelligence .
Earl of Worcester11 - 13
- What I have done my safety urg’d me to ;
- And I embrace this fortune patiently ,
- Since not to be avoided it falls on me .
King Henry IV14 - 16
- Bear Worcester to the death and Vernon too .
- Other offenders we will pause upon .
- Exeunt Worcester and Vernon , guarded .
- How goes the field ?
Prince Henry17 - 24
- The noble Scot , Lord Douglas , when he saw
- The fortune of the day quite turn’d from him ,
- The noble Percy slain , and all his men
- Upon the foot of fear , fled with the rest ,
- And falling from a hill , he was so bruis’d
- That the pursuers took him . At my tent
- The Douglas is ; and I beseech your Grace
- I may dispose of him .
King Henry IV25
- With all my heart .
Prince Henry26 - 32
- Then , brother John of Lancaster , to you
- This honorable bounty shall belong .
- Go to the Douglas , and deliver him
- Up to his pleasure , ransomless and free .
- His valors shown upon our crests today
- Have taught us how to cherish such high deeds
- Even in the bosom of our adversaries .
Prince John of Lancaster33 - 34
- I thank your Grace for this high courtesy ,
- Which I shall give away immediately .
King Henry IV35 - 45
- Then this remains , that we divide our power .
- You , son John , and my cousin Westmorland
- Towards York shall bend you with your dearest speed ,
- To meet Northumberland and the prelate Scroop ,
- Who , as we hear , are busily in arms .
- Myself and you , son Harry , will towards Wales ,
- To fight with Glendower and the Earl of March .
- Rebellion in this land shall lose his sway ,
- Meeting the check of such another day ,
- And since this business so fair is done ,
- Let us not leave till all our own be won .
- Exeunt .
