Enter CORNWALL, and REGAN, and GONERIL, and EDMUND the bastard, and servants
(to GONERIL) Post speedily to my lord your husband. Show
him this letter. The army of France is landed.
—Seek out the traitor Gloucester.
Exeunt some servants
Hang him instantly.
Pluck out his eyes.
5Leave him to my displeasure.—Edmund, keep you our
sister company. The revenges we are bound to take upon
your traitorous father are not fit for your beholding. Advise
the duke where you are going, to a most festinate
preparation. We are bound to the like. Our posts shall be
swift and intelligent betwixt us.—Farewell, dear sister.
(to EDMUND) Farewell, my lord of Gloucester.
Enter OSWALD the steward
How now? Where’s the king?
My lord of Gloucester hath conveyed him hence.
Some five or six and thirty of his knights,
15Hot questrists after him, met him at gate,
Who with some other of the lord’s dependants
Are gone with him towards Dover, where they boast
To have well-armèd friends.
