K. Hen. Give me thy glove, soldier: look,
here is the fellow of it. 41
'Twas I, indeed, thou promisedst to strike;
And thou hast given me most bitter .
Flu. An 't please your majesty, let his neck
answer for it, if there is any martial law in the
K. Hen. How canst thou make me satis-
Will. All offences, my lord, come from the
heart: never came any from mine that might
offend your majesty.
K. Hen. It was ourself thou didst abuse.
Will. Your majesty came not like yourself:
you appeared to me but as a common man;
witness the night, your garments, your ; and what your highness suffered under 56
that shape, I beseech you, take it for your own
fault and not mine: for had you been as I took

your highness, pardon me. 60
K. Hen. Here, uncle Exeter, fill this glove with crowns,
And give it to this fellow. Keep it, fellow;
And wear it for an honour in thy cap
Till I do challenge it. Give him the crowns: 64
And, captain, you must needs be friends with him.
Flu. By this day and this light, the fellow
has mettle enough in his belly. Hold, there is
twelve pence for you, and I pray you to serve 68
God, and keep you out of prawls, and ,
and quarrels, and dissensions, and, I warrant
you, it is the better for you.
