Some of fir Galahaut's fquires purfued him, whilft others were engaged with the Germans, with the intention of being fully revenged : but fir Reginald, who was a bold and accpmplifhed knight, was not much alarmed : however, when he found himfelf fo clofefy purfued, that it was proper to turn about or be difgraced, he wheeled round, and ftruck the neareft fo violently with his ftrong fword, that he had not any defire to follow him further : thus, as he was riding off, he beat down, and feverely wounded three ; and, had he had a fharp battle-axe in his hand, every one of his firokes would have killed a man. In this manner did the knight efcape from the French, without receiving the fmalleft wound, which his enemies, as well as all thofe who heard of it, con-ftdered as a moft gallant act : but it fared otberwife with Ms people, as they were almoft all killed or made prifoners, fcarcely any efcaping. They placed fir Gahhaut de Ribemmont, • who was very feverely wounded, on a litter, and carried him to Peronne to a phyfician. He was never per* kâlj cured of this wound ; for he was a knight of fuch courage that he would not allow it time to heal, fo that he died fhortly afterward. We will now return to the king of England, and relate how he laid fiege to the city and cattle of Rheims. 9 CHAP. II
