The second Part of Henry the Sixt. And makes it fearefull and degenerate,
[2385]
Thinke therefore on reuenge, and cease to weepe. But who can cease to weepe, and looke on this. Heere may his head lye on my throbbing brest: But where's the body that I should imbrace?
Buc.

What answer makes your Grace to the Rebells

[2390]

Supplication?

King. Ile send some holy Bishop to intreat: For God forbid, so many simple soules Should perish by the Sword. And I my selfe, Rather then bloody Warre shall cut them short,
[2395]
Will parley with Iacke Cade their Generall. But stay, Ile read it ouer once againe.
Qu. Ah barbarous villaines: Hath this louely face, Rul'd like a wandering Plannet ouer me, And could it not inforce them to relent,
[2400]
That were vnworthy to behold the same.
King. Lord Say, Iacke Cade hath sworne to huae haue thy head. Say. I, but I hope your Highnesse shall haue his. King. How now Madam? Still lamenting and mourning for Suffolkes death?
[2405]
I feare me (Loue) if that I had beene dead, Thou would'st not haue mourn'd so much for me.
Qu. No my Loue, I should not mourne, but dye for thee. Enter a Messenger. King. How now? What newes? Why com'st thou in such haste? Mes. The Rebels are in Southwatke Southwarke : Fly my Lord:
[2410]
Iacke Cade proclaimes himselfe Lord Mortimer, Descended from the Duke of Clarence house, And calles your Grace Vsurper, openly, And vowes to Crowne himselfe in Westminster. His Army is a ragged multitude
[2415]
Of Hindes and Pezants, rude and mercilesse: Sir Humfrey Stafford, and his Brothers death, Hath giuen them heart and courage to proceede: All Schollers, Lawyers, Courtiers, Gentlemen, They call false Catterpillers, and intend their death.
Kin.
[2420]
Oh gracelesse men: they know not what they do.
Buck. My gracious Lord, retire to Killingworth, Vntill a power be rais'd to put them downe. Qu. Ah were the Duke of Suffolke now aliue, These Kentish Rebels would be soone appeas'd. King.
[2425]
Lord Say, the Traitors hateth thee, Therefore away with vs to Killingworth.
Say. So might your Graces person be in danger: The sight of me is odious in their eyes: And therefore in this Citty will I stay,
[2430]
And liue alone as secret as I may.
Enter another Messenger. Mess. Iacke Cade hath gotten London‑bridge. The Citizens flye and forsake their houses: The Rascall people, thirsting after prey, Ioyne with the Traitor, and they ioyntly sweare
[2435]
To spoyle the City, and your Royall Court.
Buc. Then linger not my Lord, away, take horse. King. Come Margaret, God our hope will succor vs. Qu. My hope is gone, now Suffolke is deceast. King. Farewell my Lord, trust not the Kentish Rebels Buc.
[2440]
Trust no body for feare you betraid.
Say. The trust I haue, is in mine innocence,

And therefore am I bold and resolute. Exeunt.
[Act 4, Scene 5] Enter Lord Scales vpon the Tower walking. Then enters two or three Citizens below. Scales. How now? Is Iacke Cade slaine? 1. Cit. No my Lord, nor likely to be slaine:
[2445]
For they haue wonne the Bridge, Killing all those that withstand them: The L. Lord Maior craues ayd of your Honor from the Tower To defend the City from the Rebels.
Scales. Such ayd as I can spare you shall command,
[2450]
But I am troubled heere with them my selfe, The Rebels haue assay'd to win the Tower. But get you to Smithfield, and gather head, And thither I will send you Mathew Goffe. Fight for your King, your Countrey, and your Liues,
[2455]
And so farwell, for I must hence againe.
Exeunt
[Act 4, Scene 6] Enter Iacke Cade and the rest, and strikes his staffe on London stone. Cade. Now is Mortimer Lord of this City, And heere sitting vpon London Stone, I charge and command, that of the Cities cost The pissing Conduit run nothing but Clarret Wine
[2460]
This first yeare of our raigne. And now henceforward it shall be Treason for any, That calles me other then Lord Mortimer.
Enter a Soldier running. Soul.

Iacke Cade, Iacke Cade.

Cade.

Knocke him downe there.

They kill him. But.
[2465]

If this Fellow be wise, hee'l neuer call yee Iacke Cade more, I thinke he hath a very faire warning.

Dicke.

My Lord, there's an Army gathered together

in Smithfield.

Cade. Come, then let's go fight with them:
[2470]
But first, go and set London Bridge on fire, And if you can, burne downe the Tower too. Come, let's away.
Exeunt omnes.
[Act 4, Scene 7] Alarums. Mathew Goffe is slain, and all the rest. Then enter Iacke Cade, with his Company. Cade.

So sirs: now go some and pull down the Sauoy:

Others to'th Innes of Court, downe with them all.

But.
[2475]

I haue a suite vnto your Lordship.

Cade.

Bee it a Lordshippe, thou shalt haue it for that

word.

But.

Onely that the Lawes of England may come out

of your mouth.

Iohn.
[2480]

Masse 'twill be sore Law then, for he was thrust

in the mouth with a Speare, and 'tis not whole yet.

Smith.

Nay Iohn, it wil be stinking Law, for his breath

stinkes with eating toasted cheese.

Cade.

I haue thought vpon it, it shall bee so. Away,

[2485]

burne all the Records of the Realme, my mouth shall be

the Parliament of England.

Iohn. Then we are like to haue biting Statutes Vnlesse his teeth be pull'd out. Cade.

And hence‑forward all things shall be in Com­

mon.

Enter a Messenger. Mes.

My Lord, a prize, a prize, heeres the Lord Say,

[2495]

Well, hee shall be beheaded for it ten times:

Ah thou Say, thou Surge, nay thou Buckram Lord, now

art thou within point‑blanke of our Iurisdiction Regall.

What canst thou answer to my Maiesty, for giuing vp of

Normandie vnto Mounsieur Basimecu, the Dolphine of

[2500]

France? Be it knowne vnto thee by these presence, euen

the presence of Lord Mortimer, that I am the Beesome

that must sweepe the Court cleane of such filth as thou

art: Thou hast most traiterously corrupted the youth of

the Realme, in erecting a Grammar Schoole: and where­

[2505]

as before, our Fore‑fathers had no other Bookes but the

Score and the Tally, thou hast caused printing to be vs'd,

and contrary to the King, his Crowne, and Dignity, thou

hast built a Paper‑Mill. It will be prooued to thy Face,

that thou hast men about thee, that vsually talke of a

[2510]

Nowne and a Verbe, and such abhominable wordes, as

no Christian eare can endure to heare. Thou hast appoin­

ted Iustices of Peace, to call poore men before them, a­

bout matters they were not able to answer. Moreouer,

thou hast put them in prison, and because they could not

[2515]

reade, thou hast hang'd them, when (indeede) onely for

that cause they have beene most worthy to live. Thou

dost ride in a foot‑cloth, dost thou not?

Say.

What of that?

Cade.

Marry, thou ought'st not to let thy horse weare

[2520]

a Cloake, when honester men then thou go in their Hose

and Doublets.

Dicke.

And worke in their shirt to, as my selfe for ex­

ample, that am a butcher.

Say.

You men of Kent.

Dic.
[2525]

What say you of Kent.

Say.

Nothing but this: 'Tis bona terra, mala gens.

Cade.

Away with him, away with him, he speaks La­

tine.

Say. Heare me but speake, and beare mee wher'e you will:
[2530]
Kent, in the Commentaries Cæsar writ, Is term'd the ciuel'st place of all this Isle: Sweet is the Covntry, because ful of Riches, The People Liberall, Valiant, Actiue, Wealthy, Which makes me hope you are not void of pitty.
[2535]
I sold not Maine, I lost not Normandie, Yet to recouer them would loose my life: Iustice with fauour haue I alwayes done, Prayres and Teares haue mou'd me, Gifts could neuer. When haue I ought exacted at your hands?
[2540]
Kent to maintaine, the King, the Realme and you, Large gifts haue I bestow'd on learned Clearkes, Because my Booke preferr'd me to the King. And seeing Ignorance is the curse of God, Knowledge the Wing wherewith we flye to heaven.
[2545]
Vnlesse you be possest with diuellish spirits, You cannot but forbeare to murther me: This Tongue hath parlied vnto Forraigne Kings For your behoofe.
Cade. Tut, when struck'st thou one blow in the field? Say.
[2550]
Great men haue reaching hands: oft haue I struck Those that I neuer saw, and strucke them dead.
Geo. O monstrous Coward! What, to come behinde Folkes? Say. These cheekes are pale for watching for your good Cade.

Giue him a box o'th'eare, and that wil make 'em

[2555]

red againe.

Say. Long sitting to determine poore mens causes, Hath made me full of sicknesse and diseases. Cade.

Ye shall haue a hempen Candle then, & the help

of hatchet.

Dicke.
[2560]

Why dost thou quiuer man?

Say.

The Palsie, and not feare prouokes me.

Cade.

Nay, he noddes at vs, as who should say, Ile be

euen with you. Ile see if his head will stand steddier on

a pole, or no: Take him away, and behead him.

Say.
[2565]
Tell me: wherein haue I offended most ? Haue I affected wealth, or honor? Speake. Are my Chests fill'd vp with extorted Gold? Is my Apparrell sumptuous to behold? Whom haue I injur'd, that ye seeke my death?
[2570]
These hands are free from guiltlesse bloodshedding, This breast from harbouring foule deceitfull thoughts. O let me liue.
Cade.

I feele remorse in my selfe with his words: but

Ile bridle it: he shall dye, and it bee but for pleading so

[2575]

well for his life. Away with him, he has a Familiar vn­

der his Tongue, he speakes not a Gods name. Goe, take

him away I say, and strike off his head presently, and then

breake into his Sonne in Lawes house, Sir Iames Cromer,

and strike off his head, and bring them both vppon two

[2580]

poles hither.

All.

It shall be done.

Say. Ah Countrimen: If when you make your prair's, God should be so obdurate as your selues: How would it fare with your departed soules,
[2585]
And therefore yet relent, and saue my life.
Cade.

Away with him, and do as I command ye: the

proudest Peere in the Realme, shall not weare a head on

his shoulders, vnlesse he pay me tribute; there shall not

a maid be married, but she shall pay to me her Mayden­

[2590]

head ere they haue it: Men shall hold of mee in Capite.

And we charge and command, that their wiues be as free

as heart can wish, or tongue can tell.

Dicke.

My Lord,

When shall we go to Cheapside, and take up commodi­

[2595]

ties vpon our billes?

Cade.

Marry presently.

All.

O braue.

Enter one with the heads. Cade. But is not this brauer: Let them kisse one another: For they lou'd well
[2600]
When they were aliue. Now part them againe, Least they consult about the giuing vp Of some more Townes in France. Soldiers, Deferre the spoile of the Citie vntill night: For with these borne before vs, in steed of Maces,
[2605]
Will we ride through the streets, & at euery Corner Haue them kisse. Away.
Exit
