    Enter Anjoy, with two Lords of Poland.

    My Lords of Poland I must needs confesse,
    The offer of your Prince Elector's, farre
    Beyond the reach of my desertes:
    For Poland is as I have been enformde,
    A martiall people, worthy such a King,
    As hath sufficient counsaile in himselfe,
    To lighten doubts and frustrate subtile foes.
    And such a King whom practice long hath taught,
    To please himselfe with mannage of the warres,
    The greatest warres within our Christian bounds,
    I meane our warres against the Muscovites:
    And on the other side against the Turke,
    Rich Princes both, and mighty Emperours:
    Yet by my brother Charles our King of France,
    And by his graces councell it is thought,
    That if I undertake to weare the crowne
    Of Poland, it may prejudice their hope
    Of my inheritance to the crowne of France:
    For if th'almighty take my brother hence,
    By due discent the Regall seat is mine.
    With Poland therfore must I covenant thus,
    That if by death of Charles, the diadem
    Of France be cast on me, then with your leaves
    I may retire me to my native home.
    If your commission serve to warrant this,
    I thankfully shall undertake the charge
    Of you and yours, and carefully maintaine
    The wealth and safety of your kingdomes right.

    All this and more your highnes shall commaund,
    For Polands crowne and kingly diadem.

    Then come my Lords, lets goe.
