Henry IV.1, [2.4.6-10]. Prince. “But sweet ned to sweeten which name of Ned, I give thee this penny worth of sugar, clapp’d even now into my hand by an under-skinker, one that never spake other English in his life than ‘Eight shillings and sixpence,’ and ‘You are welcome’ with this shrill addition, ‘Anon, anon, sir! Score a pint of bastard in the Half-moon,’ or so.”

Again at [2.4.57]. “Nay, but hark you Francis: for the sugar thou gavest me, ’twas a pennyworth, was’t not? […] i will give thee for it a thousand pound. As me when thou wilt, and thou shalt have it.”
