That he went through Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s bags while they slept and found a letter from Claudius commanding his execution in England, so he poisoned them for their treachery.

C

That he went through Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s bags while they slept and found a letter from Claudius commanding his execution in England, so he forged a new letter in which he commanded the execution of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern instead.
