|The first excerpt represents the past or something you must release, and is drawn from King Henry VI by William Shakespeare:

My Lord of Somerset, at my request,
See that forthwith Duke Edward be convey'd
Unto my brother, Archbishop of York.

tools, ironwork, and utensils necessary for my plantation, and
