    • Sir Henry Taylor, Philip van Artevelde
      How say'st thou that he lied? Sirs, it is true
      I with this craven beggarly companion —
      Of whose accompliceship to do the deed,
      And not the deed itself, I speak with shame —
      I with this caitiff truly did conspire,
      For good and ample reasons, to remove
      Sir Walter D'Arlon from this troublesome world.
