	[Enter CADE and the rest, and strikes his staff on
	London-stone]

CADE: 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]

Soldier: Jack Cade! Jack Cade!

CADE: Knock him down there.

	[They kill him]

SMITH: If this fellow be wise, he'll never call ye Jack
	Cade more: I think he hath a very fair warning.

DICK: My lord, there's an army gathered together in
	Smithfield.

CADE: 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.

	[Exeunt]




	2 KING HENRY VI
