King Henry the Sixth, V. vii

Reignier, her father, to the King of France
Hath pawn'd the Sicils and Jerusalem,
And hither have they sent it for her ransom.40

King. Away with her, and waft her hence to France.
And now what rests but that we spend the time
With stately triumphs, mirthful comic shows,
Such as befits the pleasure of the court?44
Sound drums and trumpets! farewell sour annoy!
For here, I hope, begins our lasting joy.

Exeunt omnes.

40 it: the sum raised
43 triumphs: public rejoicings
