BLUNT

Shall I return this answer to the King?

BLUNT

Should I bring this answer to the King?

HOTSPUR

Not so, Sir Walter. We’ll withdraw awhile.
110Go to the King, and let there be impawned
Some surety for a safe return again,
And in the morning early shall my uncle
Bring him our purposes. And so farewell.

HOTSPUR

No, Sir Walter. We’ll stand down for a while. Go to the King. My uncle will bring him our demands early in the morning, provided that you arrange for a guarantee that he’ll be allowed to return safely. And so, farewell.

BLUNT

I would you would accept of grace and love.

BLUNT

I wish you would accept the King’s offer of kindness and love.

HOTSPUR

115And maybe so we shall.

HOTSPUR

Perhaps we will.

BLUNT

   Pray God you do.

I pray to God you do.
