Alarums to the fight, wherein both the Staffords

are slain. Enter Cade and the rest


CADE

Where's Dick, the butcher of Ashford?


DICK

Here, sir.


CADE

They fell before thee like sheep and oxen, and thou

behaved'st 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.


DICK

I desire no more.


CADE

And to speak truth, thou deservest no less.

He puts on Sir Humphrey Stafford's coat of mail

This monument of the victory will I bear; and the

bodies shall be dragged at my horse heels till I do

come to London, where we will have the Mayor's sword

borne before us.


DICK

If we mean to thrive and do good, break open the
good, do prosper, succeed, triumph

gaols and let out the prisoners.


CADE

Fear not that, I warrant thee. Come, let's march
