KING RICHARD II

Now put it, God, in the physician’s mind
60To help him to his grave immediately!
The lining of his coffers shall make coats
To deck our soldiers for these Irish wars.
Come, gentlemen, let’s all go visit him:
Pray God we may make haste, and come too late!

KING RICHARD II

God, let the physician help him die quickly! His fortune will pay for the soldiers’ coats in this Irish war. Come, gentleman, let’s go visit him. Let’s hurry, but pray we still arrive too late!

ALL

65Amen.

ALL

Amen.
Exeunt
They exit.
