Lord Robert d'Artois continued fome little time in Hennebon; but at laft he was recommended to return to England, where he would find more fkil-ful furgeons and phyficians. On his voyage,. he was fo much afièéied and oppreffed by fea-ficknefs that his wounds grew worfe : be furvived but a ihort time after he had been carried to London. He was courteous, courageous and gallant, and of the firft blood in the world. He was buried at London in the church of St. Paul; and the king of England made his obfcquies as folemn as if they had been for his coufin-german the earl of Derby. The lord Robert was much la-mented in England ; and when the king was inform-ed of his death, he fwore he would never reft un-til he had revenged it : he would go himfelf into Brittany, and reduce the country to fuch a fituation that it fhould not recover itfelf for forty years. He ifiued out his fummons for all manner of perfons to get themlelves in readinefs to follow him at the end of the month ; and he collefted a nume-rous fleet, well provided with every tiding that was neceflary. At the end of the month, he put to fea, and anchored near Vannes, at the fame place where lord Robert had landed with his army. It took them three days to difembark their horfes, proyifions, &c: . on the fourth, they advanced toward Vannes. The earls of Salifbury and Pembroke with the Eng-lilh before named, were all this time carrying on the fiege of Rennes. 3 CHAP. ' .31
