King John

ACT III SCENE II The same. Plains near Angiers. 
 Alarums, excursions. Enter the BASTARD, with AUSTRIA'S head. 
BASTARD Now, by my life, this day grows wondrous hot; 
 Some airy devil hovers in the sky 
 And pours down mischief. Austria's head lie there, 
 While Philip breathes. 5
KING JOHN Hubert, keep this boy. Philip, make up: 
 My mother is assailed in our tent, 
 And ta'en, I fear. 
BASTARD My lord, I rescued her; 
 Her highness is in safety, fear you not: 10
 But on, my liege; for very little pains 
 Will bring this labour to an happy end. 

Next: King John, Act 3, Scene 3
