- Sir Christopher, tell Richmond this from me:
- That in the sty of the most deadly boar
- My son George Stanley is frank’d up in hold;
- If I revolt, off goes young George’s head;
- The fear of that holds off my present aid.
- So get thee gone; commend me to thy lord.
- Withal say that the Queen hath heartily consented
- He should espouse Elizabeth her daughter.
- But tell me, where is princely Richmond now?
- At Pembroke or at Ha’rford-West in Wales.
- What men of name resort to him?

- Sir Walter Herbert, a renowned soldier,
- Sir Gilbert Talbot, Sir William Stanley,
- Oxford, redoubted Pembroke, Sir James Blunt,
- And Rice ap Thomas, with a valiant crew,
- And many other of great name and worth;
- And towards London do they bend their power,
- If by the way they be not fought withal.

- Well, hie thee to thy lord; I kiss his hand.
- My letter will resolve him of my mind.
