    601.1Nim. I shall haue my eight shillings I wonne of you at
    605Pist. A noble shalt thou haue, and readie pay,
    And liquor likewise will giue to thee,
    And friendship shall combind and brotherhood:
    Ile liue by Nim as Nim shall liue by me:
    Is not this iust? for I shall Sutler be
    Vnto the Campe, and profit will occrue.
    Nim. I shall haue my noble?
    Pist. In cash most truly paid.
    Nim. Why theres the humour of it.

    635Glost. I but the man that was his bedfellow
    Whom he hath cloyed and graced with princely fauours
    That he should for a forraine purse, to sell
    His Soueraignes life to death and trechery.
    638.1Exe. O the Lord of Massham.

    640Enter the King and three Lords.

    King. Now sirs the windes faire, and we wil aboord;
    My Lord of Cambridge, and my Lord of Massham,
    And you my gentle Knight, giue me your thoughts,
    Do you not thinke the power we beare with vs,
    645Will make vs conquerors in the field of France?
    Massha. No doubt my Liege, if each man do his best.
    Cam. Neuer
