Dialogue—Junot and Sir Hew.
JUNOT—Come, we will fight you once again;
Why don't your troops advance?
SIR HEW—I canna say I like you' ken,
Would ye were aw in France!!
JUNOT—Send us but home with purse and sword,
We'll Lisbon leave to you:
SIR HEW—Troth, and I'll tak ye at your word,
No feighting for Sir Hew!!!
