King Henry VI, Part II

ACT IV SCENE VLondon. The tower.
[ Enter SCALES upon the Tower, walking. Then enter two or three Citizens below ]
SCALESHow now! is Jack Cade slain?
First CitizenNo, 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.5
SCALESSuch 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;10
Fight for your king, your country and your lives;
And so, farewell, for I must hence again.
