Enter QUEEN ELIZABETH, Lord Marquess of DORSET, Lord RIVERS, and Lord GREY
Have patience, madam. There’s no doubt his majesty
Will soon recover his accustomed health.
In that you brook it ill, it makes him worse.
Therefore, for God’s sake, entertain good comfort
5And cheer his grace with quick and merry eyes.
If he were dead, what would betide on me?
No other harm but loss of such a lord.
The loss of such a lord includes all harms.
The heavens have blessed you with a goodly son
10To be your comforter when he is gone.
Ah, he is young, and his minority
Is put unto the trust of Richard Gloucester,
A man that loves not me nor none of you.
Is it concluded that he shall be Protector?
15It is determined, not concluded yet;
But so it must be if the king miscarry.
