Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 Whie madame (quoth another lord) know you anie thing whie they should be in ieopardie?The lord Howard, saith Edw. Hall. Naie verelie sir (quoth shee) nor whie they should be in prison nei|ther, as they now be. But it is (I trow) no great mar|uell though I feare, least those that haue not letted to put them in duresse without colour, will let as little to procure their destruction without cause. The cardi|nall made a countenance to the other lord, that he should harpe no more vpon that string; and then said he to the queene, that he nothing doubted, but that those lords of hir honorable kin, which as yet remai|ned vnder arrest, should vpon the matter examined, doo well inough: and as toward hir noble person, neither was nor could be anie maner ieopardie.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 Whereby should I trust that (quoth the quéene) in that I am giltlesse? As though they were giltie, in that I am with their enimies better loued than they? When they hate them for my sake, in that I am so néere of kin to the king? And how far they be off, if that would helpe, as God send grace it hurt not, and therefore as for me, I purpose not as yet to depart hence. And as for this gentleman my sonne, I mind that he shall be where I am, till I sée further: for I assure you, for that I sée some men so greedie, without anie substantiall cause to haue him, this maketh me much the more fearder to deliuer him.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 Truelie madame, quoth he, and the fearder that EEBO page image 720 you be to deliuer him, the fearder bin other men to suffer you to kéepe him, least your causelesse feare might cause you further to conueie him; and manie be there that thinke he can haue no priuilege in this place, which neither can haue will to aske it, nor ma|lice to deserue it. And therefore, they reckon no priui|lege broken, though they fetch him out; which if yée fi|nallie refuse to deliuer him, I verelie thinke they will. So much dread hath my lord his vncle, for the tender loue he beareth him, least your grace should hap to send him awaie.
