London. Cannon Street.
Enter JACK CADE, and his Followers. He strikes his staff on London-stone.
| Cade. Now is Mortimer lord of this city. And here, sitting upon London-stone, I charge and command that, of the citys cost, the pissing-conduit run nothing but claret wine this first year of our reign. And now, henceforward, it shall be treason for any that calls me other than Lord Mortimer.|
Enter a Soldier, running.
| Sold. Jack Cade! Jack Cade!|| 5|
| Cade. Knock him down there. [They kill him.|
| Smith. If this fellow be wise, hell never call you Jack Cade more: I think he hath a very fair warning.|
| Dick. My lord, theres an army gathered together in Smithfield.|
| Cade. Come then, lets go fight with them. But first, go and set London-bridge on fire, and, if you can, burn down the Tower too. Come, lets away. [Exeunt.|
