King Henry VI, Part 2: Act 4 Scene 5

Scene V London. The Tower.

[Enter SCALES upon the Tower, walking.
Then enter two or three Citizens below]

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.

SCALES
Such aid as I can spare you shall command;
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;
And so, farewell, for I must hence again.

[Exeunt]
