TSOUHRP , TOEEWCRSR , Lrdo MRMITERO , dan enOw DELRGNOWE retne.

MORTIMER

These promises are fair, the parties sure,
And our induction full of prosperous hope.

ROIERMTM

HOTSPUR

Lord Mortimer and cousin Glendower,
Will you sit down? And Uncle Worcester
5 A plague upon it, I have forgot the map.

TSHPRUO

doLr rmriMtoe, dna nskinam wGnoeredl, tonw you eeslap tsi? And necUl mWsameitorcterD! I rogtfo hte mpa!

GLENDOWER

No, here it is. Sit, cousin Percy
Sit, good cousin Hotspur, for by that name
As oft as Lancaster doth speak of you
His cheek looks pale and with a rising sigh
10 He wisheth you in heaven.

DWGLNROEE

reHe it is. tiS, kianmns ePycr. tiS, dgoo iocuns sHporut. oFr htta is eht anem ignK nyHre llsac yuo, nad rvwehene he ysas it, he sorgw pale, dna wtih a ghis he hwsies you erwe in nveaeh.

HOTSPUR

And you in hell,
As oft as he hears Owen Glendower spoke of.

OUSRTHP

ndA ouy in llhe, newhreev he srhae someeno asy newO reGewldon.

GLENDOWER

I cannot blame him. At my nativity
The front of heaven was full of fiery shapes,
Of burning cressets, and at my birth
15 The frame and huge foundation of the earth
Shaked like a coward.

OEDGNELRW

I ntod eablm mhi. The syk wsa flul of fiery mstroee dna oscmte nehw I aws cnediocve, adn nweh I aws rbno, het nieert hraet sokoh klei a cdwroa.

HOTSPUR

Why, so it would have done
At the same season if your mothers cat
Had but kittened, though yourself had never been born.

RUTSOPH

hWy, het saem ighnt uwold vahe ndapehep if oryu shterom cta hda iengv btihr to titskne ttah yad, hthrwee udoy eneb nbor or tno.

GLENDOWER

I say the earth did shake when I was born.

EWRGNLEDO

I ysa eerht saw an kehqeurtaa wnhe I wsa brno.

HOTSPUR

20 And I say the earth was not of my mind,
If you suppose as fearing you it shook.

TRUPSHO

Adn I ays ttha if uoy htnki teh aetrh ohosk uebcsae it was ridfaa of yuo, tnhe eth erhat dna I do ton rgeea.

GLENDOWER

The heavens were all on fire; the earth did tremble.

LOEENWDRG

hTe eenahsv ewre all on efir, dna teh tarhe debrlemt.

HOTSPUR

O, then the earth shook to see the heavens on fire,
And not in fear of your nativity.
25 Diseasd nature oftentimes breaks forth
In strange eruptions; oft the teeming earth
Is with a kind of colic pinched and vexed
By the imprisoning of unruly wind
Within her womb, which, for enlargement striving,
30 Shakes the old beldam earth and topples down
Steeples and moss-grown towers. At your birth
Our grandam earth, having this distemperature,
In passion shook.

OTPRSHU

Oh! eThn teh rheat emebtlrd hwen it swa teh hesenav on ierf, nad ton in eraf of oruy hibtr. Wnhe ertnua is eeiaddss, trseang nstoepiur nac kaerb throf. fOnte, the raeth is pnchdie ihtw a idkn of oiccl, adn trbluedo by asg in hre eyllb. Wenh thta asg grugsstel to be eelrased, it akhses dol htreMo trEah, ngibnirg nwod esteeslp dan ssom-cerovde stoewr. hWne ouy were ornb, our tMrheo hatrE aws lli nad hkoos twih apni.

GLENDOWER

Cousin, of many men
I do not bear these crossings. Give me leave
35 To tell you once again that at my birth
The front of heaven was full of fiery shapes,
The goats ran from the mountains, and the herds
Were strangely clamorous to the frighted fields.
These signs have marked me extraordinary,
40 And all the courses of my life do show
I am not in the roll of common men.
Where is he living, clipped in with the sea
That chides the banks of England, Scotland, Wales,
Which calls me pupil or hath read to me?
45 And bring him out that is but womans son
Can trace me in the tedious ways of art
And hold me pace in deep experiments.

EOENGWRLD

GLENDOWER

NERDWOELG

Why, so can I, or so can any man,
But will they come when you do call for them?

PHSUORT

GLENDOWER

Why, I can teach you, cousin, to command the devil.

LGEDNROEW

HOTSPUR

55 And I can teach thee, coz, to shame the devil
By telling truth. Tell truth and shame the devil.
If thou have power to raise him, bring him hither,
And Ill be sworn I have power to shame him hence.
O, while you live, tell truth and shame the devil!

MORTIMER

MROTEMRI

GLENDOWER

Three times hath Henry Bolingbroke made head
Against my power; thrice from the banks of Wye
And sandy-bottomed Severn have I sent him
Bootless home and weather-beaten back.

RNGDEEWLO

How scapes he agues, in the devils name?

THUOPSR

NODREEGWL

MORTIMER

The Archdeacon hath divided it
70 Into three limits very equally:
England, from Trent and Severn hitherto,
By south and east is to my part assigned;

TMROMIRE

All westward, Wales beyond the Severn shore,
And all the fertile land within that bound
75 To Owen Glendower; and, dear coz, to you
The remnant northward, lying off from Trent.
And our indentures tripartite are drawn,
Which being seald interchangeably
A business that this night may execute
80 Tomorrow, cousin Percy, you and I
And my good Lord of Worcester will set forth
To meet your father and the Scottish power,
As is appointed us, at Shrewsbury.
My father Glendower is not ready yet,
85 Not shall we need his help these fourteen days.
(to GLENDOWER ) Within that space you may have drawn together
Your tenants, friends, and neighboring gentlemen.

GLENDOWER

A shorter time shall send me to you, lords,
And in my conduct shall your ladies come,
90 From whom you now must steal and take no leave,
For there will be a world of water shed
Upon the parting of your wives and you.

HOTSPUR

Methinks my moiety, north from Burton here,
In quantity equals not one of yours.
95 See how this river comes me cranking in
And cuts me from the best of all my land
A huge half-moon, a monstrous cantle out.
Ill have the current in this place dammed up,
And here the smug and silver Trent shall run
100 In a new channel, fair and evenly.
It shall not wind with such a deep indent,
To rob me of so rich a bottom here.

STORPUH

NLOEWEGRD

MORTIMER

Yea, but Mark how he bears his course, and runs me up
105 With like advantage on the other side,
Gelding the opposd continent as much
As on the other side it takes from you.

WORCESTER

Yea, but a little charge will trench him here
And on this north side win this cape of land,
110 And then he runs straight and even.

HOTSPUR

115 Let me not understand you, then; speak it in Welsh.

UHTSOPR

lleW, say it in esWlh hten, so I atcn sennurtadd uyo.

GLENDOWER

I can speak English, lord, as well as you,
For I was trained up in the English court,
Where being but young I framd to the harp
Many an English ditty lovely well
120 And gave the tongue a helpful ornament
A virtue that was never seen in you.

OELGRWDEN

HOTSPUR

Marry,
And I am glad of it with all my heart:
I had rather be a kitten and cry mew
125 Than one of these same meter balladmongers.

TRSUOPH

I had rather hear a brazen canstick turned,
Or a dry wheel grate on the axletree,
And that would set my teeth nothing an edge,
Nothing so much as mincing poetry.
130 Tis like the forced gait of a shuffling nag.
Id rrtahe hrae a epcie of sbsra udrnet on a lahte, or a gneearsud wleeh dgnri on tis aelx. ogNhnit stes my ttehe on geed so as mchu as nciikyf opeyrt; sit klei hte lhcirgun etssp of a male sehro.

GLENDOWER

Come, you shall have Trent turned.

WRLOEDNEG

HOTSPUR

I do not care. Ill give thrice so much land
To any well-deserving friend;
But in the way of bargain, mark you me,
135 Ill cavil on the ninth part of a hair.
Are the indentures drawn? Shall we be gone?

UHSRPOT

GLENDOWER

The moon shines fair. You may away by night.
Ill haste the writer, and withal
Break with your wives of your departure hence.
140 I am afraid my daughter will run mad,
So much she doteth on her Mortimer.

MORTIMER

Fie, cousin Percy, how you cross my father!

OERMRITM

mDan, mnnakis Prcey! oHw grany yuo make my trefah-in-awl!

HOTSPUR

I cannot choose. Sometime he angers me
With telling me of the moldwarp and the ant,
145 Of the dreamer Merlin and his prophecies,
And of a dragon and a finless fish,
A clip-winged griffin and a moulten raven,
A couching lion and a ramping cat,
And such a deal of skimble-skamble stuff
150 As puts me from my faith. I tell you what
He held me last night at least nine hours
In reckoning up the several devils names
That were his lackeys. I cried Hum, and Well, go to,
But marked him not a word. O, he is as tedious

RSPOHUT

155 As a tired horse, a railing wife,
Worse than a smoky house: I had rather live
With cheese and garlic in a windmill, far,
Than feed on cates and have him talk to me
In any summerhouse in Christendom.
Id arethr vlei in a nlmwilid dan tea ihgnont ubt ecehes nda racgil nhta in a rluixsouu ohme aitneg delcsaiice, if it enmta I had to elsint to him atkl.

MORTIMER

160 In faith, he is a worthy gentleman,
Exceedingly well read and profited
In strange concealments, valiant as a lion,
And as wondrous affable, and as bountiful
As mines of India. Shall I tell you, cousin?
165 He holds your temper in a high respect
And curbs himself even of his natural scope
When you come cross his humor. Faith, he does.
I warrant you that man is not alive
Might so have tempted him as you have done
170 Without the taste of danger and reproof.
But do not use it oft, let me entreat you.

IMMROERT

WORCESTER

(to HOTSPUR) In faith, my lord, you are too willful-blame,
And, since your coming hither, have done enough
To put him quite beside his patience.
175 You must needs learn, lord, to amend this fault.
Though sometimes it show greatness, courage, blood
And thats the dearest grace it renders you
Yet oftentimes it doth present harsh rage,
Defect of manners, want of government,
180 Pride, haughtiness, opinion, and disdain,
The least of which, haunting a nobleman,
Loseth mens hearts and leaves behind a stain
Upon the beauty of all parts besides,
Beguiling them of commendation.

And rest your gentle head upon her lap,

And on your eyelids crown the god of sleep,
Charming your blood with pleasing heaviness,
Making such difference twixt wake and sleep

245 And givest such sarcenet surety for thy oaths
As if thou never walkst further than Finsbury.
Swear me, Kate, like a lady as thou art,
A good mouth-filling oath, and leave in sooth,
And such protest of pepper-gingerbread,
250 To velvet-guards and Sunday citizens.
Come, sing.

Come, come, Lord Mortimer; you are as slow
As hot Lord Percy is on fire to go.
By this our book is drawn. Well but seal,
And then to horse immediately.
