The History of Sir John Oldcastle (Folio 3, 1664)

Lord Cobham comes out stealing in his gown.
Cob. Harpool, Harpool, I hear a marvellous noise about
2235the house, God warrant us, I fear we are pursued:
what Harpool?
Har. within. Who calls there?
Cob. 'Tis I, dost thou not hear a noise about the house?
Har. Yes marry do I, zounds I cannot find my hose,
2240this Irish rascal that lodg'd with me all night, hath stollen
my apparel, and has left me nothing but a lowsie mantle,
and a pair of broags. Get up, get up, and if the Carrier
and his wench be asleep, change you with him as he hath
done with me, and see if we can scape.
