Sir Christopher, tell Richmond this from me:CHRISTOPHER
That in the sty of this most bloody boar
My son George Stanley is frank'd up in hold:
If I revolt, off goes young George's head;
The fear of that withholds my present aid.
So get thee gone; commend me to thy lord.
Withal say that the Queen hath heartily consented
He should espouse Elizabeth her daughter.
[But, tell me, where is princely Richmond now?]
[At Pembroke, or at Harford-west, in Wales.]STANLEY
[What men of name resort to him?]CHRISTOPHER
[Sir Walter Herbert, a renowned soldier;STANLEY
Sir Gilbert Talbot, Sir William Stanley;
Oxford, redoubted Pembroke, Sir James Blunt,
And Rice ap Thomas with a valiant crew;
And many more of noble fame and worth:
And towards London they do bend their course,
If by the way they be not fought withal.]
Well, hie thee to thy lord; I kiss his hand.
My letter will resolve him of my mind.
