The Witch of Edmonton – Act Five, scene two

Return to previous scene

Enter Justice, SIR ARTHUR, WARBECK, SOMERTON, OLD CARTER, and KATHERINE.

 JUSTICE
Sir Arthur, though the bench hath mildly censur’d your errors, yet you have indeed been the instrument that wrought all their misfortunes, I would wish you paid down your fine speedily and willingly.

SIR ARTHUR
I’ll need no urging to it.

OLD CARTER
If you should, ‘twere a shame to you, for if I should speak my conscience, you are worthier to be hang’d of the two, all things considered, and now make what you can of it, but I am glad these gentlemen are freed.

WARBECK
We knew our innocence.

SOMERTON
And therefore fear’d it not.

KATHERINE
But I am glad that I have you safe.                                                       [Noise within.

JUSTICE
How now!  What noise is that?

OLD CARTER
Young Frank is going the wrong way.  Alas, poor youth!  Now I begin to pity him.                                                                                                                            [Exeunt.
