William Shakespeare (1564–1616).  The Oxford Shakespeare.  1914.
The Third Part of King Henry the Sixth
Act II. Scene IV.
Another Part of the Field
Excursions.  Enter RICHARD and CLIFFORD.
  Rich.  Now, Clifford, I have singled thee alone.
Suppose this arm is for the Duke of York,
And this for Rutland; both bound to revenge,        5
Wert thou environ’d with a brazen wall.
  Clif.  Now, Richard, I am with thee here alone.
This is the hand that stabb’d thy father York,
And this the hand that slew thy brother Rutland;
And here’s the heart that triumphs in their death        10
And cheers these hands that slew thy sire and brother,
To execute the like upon thyself;
And so, have at thee!  [They fight.  WARWICK enters; CLIFFORD flies.
  Rich.  Nay, Warwick, single out some other chase;
For I myself will hunt this wolf to death.  [Exeunt.        15
