Enter Jack Cade and the rest, and 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 city's cost, the Pissing Conduit run nothing
cost (n.) 1 outlay, expense, expenditure

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


SOLDIER

Jack Cade! Jack Cade!


CADE

Knock him down there.

They kill him


SMITH

If this fellow be wise, he'll never call ye Jack Cade

more; I think he hath a very fair warning.


DICK

My lord, there's an army gathered together in

Smithfield.


CADE

Come then, let's go fight with them. But first,

go and set London Bridge on fire, and, if you can, burn

down the Tower too. Come, let's away.

Exeunt
