SCALES

How now? Is Jack Cade slain?


FIRST CITIZEN

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.
crave (v.) 1 beg, entreat, request See Topics: Frequency count


SCALES

Such aid as I can spare you shall command,

But I am troubled here with them myself;

The rebels have assayed to win the Tower.
assay (v.) 1 attempt, try, venture

But get you to Smithfield and gather head,
head (n.) 1 fighting force, army, body of troops

And thither I will send you Matthew Gough.

Fight for your king, your country, and your lives;

And so farewell, for I must hence again.

Exeunt
