ACT IV - SCENE V. A park near Middleham Castle In Yorkshire.
Enter GLOUCESTER, HASTINGS, and STANLEY

GLOUCESTER
1    Now, my Lord Hastings and Sir William Stanley,
2    Leave off to wonder why I drew you hither,
3    Into this chiefest thicket of the park.
4    Thus stands the case: you know our king, my brother,
5    Is prisoner to the bishop here, at whose hands
6    He hath good usage and great liberty,
7    And, often but attended with weak guard,
8    Comes hunting this way to disport himself.
9    I have advertised him by secret means
10   That if about this hour he make his way
11   Under the colour of his usual game,
12   He shall here find his friends with horse and men
13   To set him free from his captivity.
Enter KING EDWARD IV and a Huntsman with him

Huntsman
14   This way, my lord; for this way lies the game.
KING EDWARD IV
15   Nay, this way, man: see where the huntsmen stand.
16   Now, brother of Gloucester, Lord Hastings, and the rest,
17   Stand you thus close, to steal the bishop's deer?
GLOUCESTER
18   Brother, the time and case requireth haste:
19   Your horse stands ready at the park-corner.
KING EDWARD IV
20   But whither shall we then?
HASTINGS
21   To Lynn, my lord,
22   And ship from thence to Flanders.
GLOUCESTER
23   Well guess'd, believe me; for that was my meaning.
KING EDWARD IV
24   Stanley, I will requite thy forwardness.
GLOUCESTER
25   But wherefore stay we? 'tis no time to talk.
KING EDWARD IV
26   Huntsman, what say'st thou? wilt thou go along?
Huntsman
27   Better do so than tarry and be hang'd.
GLOUCESTER
28   Come then, away; let's ha' no more ado.
KING EDWARD IV
29   Bishop, farewell: shield thee from Warwick's frown;
30   And pray that I may repossess the crown.
Exeunt
31   3 KING HENRY VI
