Jaxthausen. A Hall inGoetz’sCastle.
EnterGoetzandHans von Selbitz.
Every one will applaud you for declaring feud against the Nurembergers.
It would have eaten my very heart away had I remained longer their debtor. It is clear that they betrayed my page to the Bambergers. They shall have cause to remember me.
They have an old grudge against you.
And I against them. I am glad they have begun the fray.
These free towns have always taken part with the priests.
They have good reason.
But we will cook their porridge for them!
I reckon upon you. Would that the Burgomaster of Nuremberg, with his gold chain round his neck, fell in our way, we’d astonish him with all his cleverness.
I hear Weislingen is again on your side. Does he really join in our league?
Not immediately. There are reasons which prevent his openly giving us assistance; but for the present it is quite enough that he is not against us. The priest without him is what the stole would be without the priest!
When do we set forward?
To-morrow or next day. There are merchants of Bamberg and Nuremberg returning from the fair of Frankfort—we may strike a good blow.
Let us hope so!
