Subject:        Henry

Larry Weiss argues that Gower's speech at the start of 4.7 tells us
something about Henry. What is it, Larry? (I'm not being a smart aleck
here, I really want to know.)  The king has already given his order and
we've seen why. Besides, until gower arrives at the camp and sees both
the boys and the despoiled tent, he doesn't know about the ransacking of
it, does he?  That's why the two important issues are (1) why Henry
really gives his order (in 4.6) and (2) why Gower, moments or minutes
later, thinks it is in response to the killing of boys and/or the
despoiling of the king's tent. (I opt for and, Larry for or.)

Subject:        Henry V

In the opening of Henry V, Ely refers to Canterbury as "my lord," while
Canterbury refers to Henry both as "his majesty" and "his grace." I
thought it was Canterbury who'd get the "grace."  Does anyone a whole
lot more familiar with British titles know what this was about?
