Talbot

Talbot, my life, my joy, again returned!

Salisbury
Talbot, my life, my joy, again returned!
How wert thou handled, being prisoner?
Or by what means gott’st thou to be released?
Discourse, I prithee, on this turret’s top.
Talbot
The Duke of Bedford had a prisoner
Called the brave Lord Ponton de Santrailles;

 Where is John Talbot?—Pause, and take thy breath;
 I gave thee life and rescued thee from death.

To hazard all our lives in one small boat.
