Scene III

A room in the Garter Inn

Enter Host and Bardolph


Sir, the Germans desire to have three of your horses: the duke himself will be to-morrow at court, and they are going to meet him.


What duke should that be comes so secretly? I hear not of him in the court. Let me speak with the gentlemen: they speak English?


Ay, sir; I'll call them to you.


They shall have my horses; but I'll make them pay; I'll sauce them: they have had my house a week at command; I have turned away my other guests: they must come off; I'll sauce them. Come.
