Dedans tonneaux hors oingts d'huile & gresse,
Seront vingt vn deuant le port fermez,
Au second guet par mort feront proüesse,
Gaigner les portes, & du guet assommez.
Within casks anointed outside with oil and grease
twenty-one will be shut before the harbour,
at second watch; through death they will do great deeds;
to win the gates and be killed by the watch.
