Alarums. The two parties enter and fight, and both the STAFFORDS are slain.
| Cade. Wheres Dick, the butcher of Ashford?|
| Dick. Here, sir.|
| Cade. They fell before thee like sheep and oxen, and thou behavedst thyself as if thou hadst been in thine own slaughter-house: therefore thus will I reward thee, the Lent shall be as long again as it is; and thou shalt have a licence to kill for a hundred lacking one.|| 5|
| Dick. I desire no more.|
| Cade. And, to speak truth, thou deservest no less. This monument of the victory will I bear; [Puts on SIR HUMPHREY STAFFORDS armour.] and the bodies shall be dragged at my horse heels, till I do come to London, where we will have the Mayors sword borne before us.|
| Dick. If we mean to thrive and do good, break open the gaols and let out the prisoners.|
| Cade. Fear not that, I warrant thee. Come; lets march towards London. [Exeunt.|
