The Recruiting Officer pdf free download. Drum beats the Grenadier’s March.—
Enter Serjeant Kite, followed by Thomas Appletree, Costar Pearmain, and the
Kite. [Making a Speech.] If any gentlemen soldiers or others, have a mind to
serve his majesty, and pull down the French king; if any ‘prentices have severe
masters, any children have undutiful parents; if any servants have too little
wages, or any husband too much wife, let them repair to the noble Serjeant
Kite, at the sign of the Raven, in this good town of Shrewsbury, and they shall
receive present relief and entertainment.—[Drum.]—Gentlemen, I don’t beat
my drums here to insnare or inveigle any man; for you must know, gentlemen,
that I am a man of honour: besides, I don’t beat up for common soldiers; no,
I list only grenadiers; grenadiers, gentlemen.——Pray, gentlemen, observe this
cap—this is the cap of honour; it dubs a man a gentleman, in the drawing of
a trigger; and he, that has the good fortune to be born six foot high, was born
to be a great man—Sir, will you give me leave to try this cap upon your head?
Cost. Is there no harm in’t? won’t the cap list me?
