The night comes on, and darkness covers the battle-field.
SCENE  V
WINDSOR CASTLE.    A ROOM   IN   THE  KING'S APARTMENTS
The walls of the room are padded, and also the articles of furniture, the stuffings being overlaid with satin and velvet, on which are worked in gold thread monograms and crowns, The windows are guarded, and the floor covered with thick cork, carpeted. The time is shortly after the last scene.
The KINO is seated by a window, and two of Dr. WILLIS'S attendants are in the room. His MAJESTY is now seventy-two; his sight is very defective, but he does not look ill. He appears to be lost in melancholy thought, and talks to himself reproachfully, a hurried manner on occasion being the only irregular symptom that Ke betrays.
KING
In my lifetime I did not look after her enough— enough-—enough! And now she is lost to me, and I shrill never see her more. Had I but known, had I but thought of it! Gentlemen, when did I lose the Princess Amelia?
FIRST ATTENDANT The second of last November, your Majesty.
KING And what is It now?
