" Lady, I never loved witchcraft,                                .05
Never dealt in privy wyle ; But evermore held the high-waye
Of truth and honour, free from guile."
" If you'll not come yourselfe, my lorde,
Yet send your chamberlaine with mee , no
Let me but speak three words with him, And he shall come again to thee."
James Swynard with that lady went,
She showed him through the weme of her ring How many English lords there were                      us
Waiting for his master and him.
"And who walkes yonder, my good lady,
So royallye on yonder greene ? " " O yonder is the Lord Hunsden :
Alas! he'll doe you drie and teene."                 
" And who beth yonder, thou gay ladye, That walkes so proudly him beside ? "
" That is Sir William Drury," shee sayd, " A keene captaine hee is and tryde."
" How many miles is itt, madame,                            ias
Betwixt yond English lords and mee ? "
119. The Lord Warden of the East Marches.P. 123. Governor of Berwick.P.
