Recited fragment of the ballad 'King Henry Fifth's Conquest of France'. The king muses on the tribute due to him from the King of France, ten tons of gold. The King of France finally surrenders his own daughter as payment of the debt.
Adam Lamb heard his mother sing this song.
Several lines recited within narrative. These fragments correspond closely to Child's first, fourth and last stanzas.
