ACT IV, SCENE VI
Horatio receives letters informing him that through a twist of fate pirates have attacked Hamlet's ship
and captured only him, while letting the others sail for England. The pirates have treated him well,
Hamlet writes, and he in return will be expected to do a good turn for them, presumably in the form of a
ransom or a royal amnesty for piracies along the Danish coast. He encloses a letter for the king, begs
Horatio to hurry to him, and adds that he has much to tell him, especially of Rosencrantz and
Guildenstern. Horatio rushes off to find his friend.
