We have news from the North that bids us brace on the burgonet and buckle-to the brand, a revolt that requires a king's arm to quell. Leonard's, the true design that of treason to our realm. At the same time, we hear from our brother of Gloucester, now on the Border, that the Scotch have lifted the Lancaster Rose. There is peril if these two armies meet.

Life seemed too rough a thing for so soft a nature, and gazing on her, one sighed to guess her future. "What brings ye hither, whom I left so lately deep engaged in the loom, upon the helmet of Goliath, with my burgonet before you as a sample? Wife, you are to blame, our rooms of state will be arrasless for the next three generations, if these rosy fingers are suffered thus to play the idlers."
