Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ... in this house, because the unconquered soul of Cade is fled. Iden. Is't Cade that I have slain, that monstrous traitor?--Sword, I will hallow thee for this thy deed, 70 And hang thee o'er my tomb when I am dead; Ne'er shall this blood be wiped from thy point, But thou shalt wear it as a herald's coat, To emblaze the honour that thy master got.

A sceptre shall it have, have I a soul, 10 On which I 'll toss the flower-de-luce of France.--Enter Buckingham Whom have we here? Buckingham, to disturb me? The king hath sent him, sure; I must dissemble. Buckingham. York, if thou meanest well, more
