|The Second Part of King Henry the Sixth|
|Act IV. Scene V.|
The Same. The Tower.
Enter LORD SCALES and Others, on the Walls. Then enter certain Citizens, below.
| Scales. How now! is Jack Cade slain?|
| First Cit. 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 honour from the Tower, to defend the city from the rebels.|
| Scales. Such aid as I can spare you shall command;|| 5|
|But I am troubled here with them myself;|
|The rebels have assayd 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;|| 10|
|And so, farewell, for I must hence again. [Exeunt.|
