    I. Citizen. No my Lord, nor likely to be slaine,
    For they haue wonne the bridge,
    Killing all those that withstand them.
    The Lord Mayor craueth ayde of your honor from the Tower,

    Lord Scayles. Such aide as I can spare, you shall command,

    But get you to Smythfield and gather head,
    2610And thither I will send you Mathew Goffe,
    Fight for your King, your Country, and your liues,
    And so farewell, for I must hence againe.
