NICK
All is ready, sir.

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.

(Tom and Truelove shake hands)
