Excerpt from John of England, Vol. 3 of 3: An Historical Romance
What! am I dar'd, and bearded to my face? -
Draw, men, for all this privileged place;
Blue coats or tawney coats.
A rope! a rope! -
Now beat them hence; why do you let them stay?
Thee I'll chace hence, thou wolf in sheep's array. -
Out, tawney coats! out, scarlet hypocrite! - Shakespere.
Isabella of Angoulême had not borne her husband an heir when the young Arthur was thus foully done to death; so that John, in destroying this scion of Plantagenet, had left himself the sole representative of that heroic race.
