Scene: a room in the Castle of Vincennes.
Old ed. “there,” which Dyce silently retains. The correction was made by Cunningham, who explains the passage thus:—” There are persons (you yourself and my Protestant subjects, for instance) from whom I have deserved a scourge, but their feelings would never lead them to poison their king; God grant that my dearest relations may prove to have been no worse than those who ought to be my enemies,” &c.—” Scourge” must surely be the scourge of God. Navarre had said, “God will sure restore you:” to which the king answers, “I have deserved a scourge” from God. Before 1. 10 a line or more referring to the massacre of the Protestants must have dropped out.
Old ed. “Nauarre.”
Old ed. “seeme.”
