CATESBY

Rescue, my lord of Norfolk, rescue, rescue!
The king enacts more wonders than a man,
Daring an opposite to every danger.
His horse is slain, and all on foot he fights,
5 Seeking for Richmond in the throat of death.
Rescue, fair lord, or else the day is lost!

Slave, I have set my life upon a cast,
10 And I will stand the hazard of the die.
I think there be six Richmonds in the field;
Five have I slain today instead of him.
A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse!
