London. Cannon Street.
EnterJack Cade,and his Followers. He strikes his staff on London-stone.
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 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.
Jack Cade! Jack Cade!
Knock him down there.
[They kill him.
If this fellow be wise, he’ll never call you Jack Cade more: I think he hath a very fair warning.
My lord, there’s an army gathered together in Smithfield.
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.
