TOM Tell me, good Shadow: since, born and bred in indigence, I am unacquainted with such matters, what wages you customarily receive?.
NICK Let us not speak of that, master, till you know better what my services are worth. A year and a day hence, we will settle our account. And then, I promise you, you shall pay me no more and no less than what you yourself acknowledge to be just.
TOM A fair offer. 'Tis agreed. Dear father Truelove, the very moment my affairs are settled, I shall send for you and my dearest Anne. And when she arrives, all London shall be at her feet. For all London shall be mine, and what is mine must of needs at least adore what I must with all my being worship.
