York. While we pursu'd the horsemen of the north,
He slily stole away and left his men:
Whereat the great Lord of Northumberland, 4
Whose warlike ears could never brook ,
Cheer'd up the drooping army; and himself,
, and Lord Stafford, all abreast,
Charg'd our main battle's front, and breaking in 8
Were by the swords of common soldiers slain.

Is either slain or wounded dangerous;
I cleft his with a downright blow: 12
That this is true, father, behold his blood.
[Showing his bloody sword.]
Whom I encounter'd as the battles join'd.
Rich. Speak thou for me, and tell them what I did. 16
[Throwing down the Duke of Somerset's head.]
