Quote #10

He does me double wrong
That wounds me with the flatteries of his tongue. (3.2.12)

Moments earlier, Aumerle comforted him by suggesting that they appeal to Aumerle's father, York, for an army to fight the rebels. Richard, feeling hopeful once more, asks Scrope, who has just arrived with news, to "speak sweetly." But it's no use: Scrope can't sweeten the bad news.
