London. The Tower.
- Enter Lord Scales upon the Tower, walking. Then enters two
- or three Citizens below.
- How now? Is Jack Cade slain?
First London Citizen2 - 5
- No, my lord, nor likely to be slain; for they have won the
- Bridge, killing all those that withstand them. The Lord
- Mayor craves aid of your honor from the Tower to defend the
- city from the rebels.
Lord Scales6 - 12
- Such aid as I can spare you shall command,
- But I am troubled here with them myself;
- The rebels have assay’d to win the Tower.
- But get you to Smithfield and gather head,
- And thither I will send you Matthew Goffe.
- Fight for your king, your country, and your lives,
- And so farewell, for I must hence again.
