CHIEF JUSTICE

I would his Majesty had called me with him.
The service that I truly did his life
Hath left me open to all injuries.

Indeed, I think the young King loves you not.

CHIEF JUSTICE

10 I know he doth not, and do arm myself
To welcome the condition of the time,
Which cannot look more hideously upon me
Than I have drawn it in my fantasy.

WARWICK

Here come the heavy issue of dead Harry.
15 O, that the living Harry had the temper
Of he the worst of these three gentlemen!
How many nobles then should hold their places
That must strike sail to spirits of vile sort!

We do remember, but our argument
Is all too heavy to admit much talk.

WCWIRAK

O, good my lord, you have lost a friend indeed,
And I dare swear you borrow not that face
Of seeming sorrow; it is sure your own.

You stand in coldest expectation.
I am the sorrier; would twere otherwise.

Which swims against your stream of quality.

CHIEF JUSTICE

35 Sweet princes, what I did I did in honor,
Led by th impartial conduct of my soul;
And never shall you see that I will beg
A ragged and forestalled remission.
If truth and upright innocency fail me,
40 Ill to the King my master that is dead
And tell him who hath sent me after him.

IHCEF IUTSCEJ

CHIEF JUSTICE

Good morrow, and God save your Majesty.

CEIFH CESUJIT

oGod grniomn, and God avse ouyr tymjaes!

PRINCE HENRY

This new and gorgeous garment majesty
45 Sits not so easy on me as you think.
Brothers, you mix your sadness with some fear.
This is the English, not the Turkish court;
Not Amurath an Amurath succeeds,
But Harry Harry. Yet be sad, good brothers,
50 For, by my faith, it very well becomes you.
Sorrow so royally in you appears
That I will deeply put the fashion on
And wear it in my heart. Why then, be sad.
But entertain no more of it, good brothers,
55 Than a joint burden laid upon us all.
For me, by heaven, I bid you be assured,
Ill be your father and your brother too.
Let me but bear your love, I ll bear your cares.
Yet weep that Harrys dead, and so will I,
60 But Harry lives that shall convert those tears
By number into hours of happiness.

You all look strangely on me. (to the CHIEF JUSTICE) And you

You are, I think, assured I love you not.

Your Majesty hath no just cause to hate me.

CIEFH UCETSJI

PRINCE HENRY

No?
How might a prince of my great hopes forget
So great indignities you laid upon me?
70 What, rate, rebuke, and roughly send to prison
Th immediate heir of England? Was this easy?
May this be washed in Lethe and forgotten?

CRNPIE REYNH

CHIEF JUSTICE

I then did use the person of your father;
The image of his power lay then in me.
75 And in th administration of his law,
Whiles I was busy for the commonwealth,
Your Highness pleasd to forget my place,
The majesty and power of law and justice,
The image of the King whom I presented,
80 And struck me in my very seat of judgment,
Whereon, as an offender to your father,
I gave bold way to my authority
And did commit you. If the deed were ill,
Be you contented, wearing now the garland,
85 To have a son set your decrees at nought?
To pluck down justice from your awful bench?
To trip the course of law and blunt the sword
That guards the peace and safety of your person?
Nay more, to spurn at your most royal image
90 And mock your workings in a second body?
Question your royal thoughts, make the case yours;
Be now the father and propose a son,
Hear your own dignity so much profaned,
See your most dreadful laws so loosely slighted,
95 Behold yourself so by a son disdained,
And then imagine me taking your part
And in your power soft silencing your son.
After this cold considerance, sentence me,
And, as you are a king, speak in your state

PRINCE HENRY

You are right, justice, and you weigh this well.
Therefore still bear the balance and the sword.
And I do wish your honors may increase
105 Till you do live to see a son of mine
Offend you and obey you as I did.
So shall I live to speak my fathers words:
Happy am I that have a man so bold
That dares do justice on my proper son;
110 And not less happy, having such a son
That would deliver up his greatness so
Into the hands of justice. You did commit me,
For which I do commit into your hand
Th unstaind sword that you have used to bear,
115 With this remembrance: that you use the same
With the like bold, just, and impartial spirit
As you have done gainst me. There is my hand.
You shall be as a father to my youth,
My voice shall sound as you do prompt mine ear,
120 And I will stoop and humble my intents
To your well-practiced wise directions.
And, princes all, believe me, I beseech you:
My father is gone wild into his grave,
For in his tomb lie my affections,
125 And with his spirit sadly I survive
To mock the expectation of the world,
To frustrate prophecies, and to raze out
Rotten opinion, who hath writ me down
After my seeming. The tide of blood in me
130 Hath proudly flowed in vanity till now.
Now doth it turn and ebb back to the sea,
Where it shall mingle with the state of floods
And flow henceforth in formal majesty.
Now call we our high court of parliament,
