William Shakespeare (1564–1616).  The Oxford Shakespeare.  1914.
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 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;        10
And so, farewell, for I must hence again.  [Exeunt.
