In this scene we see the two messengers  from the previous scene conveying Williams message to Count Guy. William is requesting that Guy release Harold. A lookout is leaning out of the tree at the end of this scene. The lower border depicts a scene of bear-baiting and could be another Aesop's Fable, The Knight and the Wild Boar. Bear-baiting was popular in England until the nineteenth century. Henry VIII had a pit constructed at Whitehall for the event and Elizabeth I is also known to have approved of the entertainment. When an attempt was made to ban bear-baiting on Sundays, Elizabeth overruled Parliament.
