Our Modern Falstaff Reviewing his Army

FALSTAFF — My whole charge consists of slaves as ragged as Lazarus, and such as indeed were never soldiers, but discarded serving-men and revolted tapsters. No eye hath seen such scarecrows. Nay and the villains march wide between the legs, as if they had fetters on; for, indeed, I had the most of them out of prison. — Shakespeare, slightly varied.
