  • Father, I know; and oft have shot at them,
    Howe'er unfortunate I miss'd my aim.
  • Master-Gunner. Sirrah, thou know'st how Orleans is besieged,
    And how the English have the suburbs won.

    Boy. Father, I know; and oft have shot at them,
    Howe'er unfortunate I miss'd my aim.

  • Father, I warrant you; take you no care;
    I'll never trouble you, if I may spy them.

  • Master-Gunner. But now thou shalt not. Be thou ruled by me:
    Chief master-gunner am I of this town;
    Something I must do to procure me grace.
    The prince's espials have informed me
    How the English, in the suburbs close intrench'd,
    Wont, through a secret grate of iron bars
    In yonder tower, to overpeer the city,
    And thence discover how with most advantage
    They may vex us with shot, or with assault.
    To intercept this inconvenience,
    A piece of ordnance 'gainst it I have placed;
    And even these three days have I watch'd,
    If I could see them.
    Now do thou watch, for I can stay no longer.
    If thou spy'st any, run and bring me word;
    And thou shalt find me at the governor's.

    Boy. Father, I warrant you; take you no care;
    I'll never trouble you, if I may spy them.
    [Exit]
    [Enter, on the turrets, SALISBURY and TALBOT,]
    GLANSDALE, GARGRAVE, and others]
