1 Sir Christopher, tell Richmond this from me: 2 That in the sty of this most bloody boar 3 My son George Stanley is frank'd up in hold: 4 If I revolt, off goes young George's head; 5 The fear of that withholds my present aid. 6 But, tell me, where is princely Richmond now?
7 At Pembroke, or at Harford-west, in Wales.
8 What men of name resort to him?
9 Sir Walter Herbert, a renowned soldier; 10 Sir Gilbert Talbot, Sir William Stanley; 11 Oxford, redoubted Pembroke, Sir James Blunt, 12 And Rice ap Thomas with a valiant crew; 13 And many more of noble fame and worth: 14 And towards London they do bend their course, 15 If by the way they be not fought withal.
16 Return unto thy lord; commend me to him: 17 Tell him the queen hath heartily consented 18 He shall espouse Elizabeth her daughter. 19 These letters will resolve him of my mind. Farewell.
