“Daring an opposite to every danger: His horse is slain, and all on foot he fights, Seeking for Richmond in the throat of death. Rescue, fair lord, or else the day is lost! [Alarum. Enter KING RICHARD.] KING RICHARD
A horse! A horse! my kingdom for a horse!
CATESBY Withdraw, my lord! I'll help you to a horse.
KING RICHARD Slave, I have set my life upon a cast, And I will stand the hazard of the die: I think there be six Richmonds in the field: Five have I slain to-day instead of him.—” source
