The French,, being well mounted, charged thefe Englifh and Gafcons, who were not very numerous ; and, at the firft charge, the lord of Gomegines was run through with a fpear,. and had not afterwards an opportunity* from the fituation of the place, to remount his horfe. His people fought valiantly, ,and many gallant deeds were done ; but in the end the lord of Gomegines could » not hold out ; he was therefore made prifoner, on his parole. Two of his fquires had fought valiantly, but were forced to yield or they would have been flain, as well as Chriftopher de Mur, a yahaht fquire, who bore the pennon of the lord pf Gome-gines.. To make an end of this affair, all thofe of the Gomegine party were either flain or made pri-foners, except the valets, who, being well mouftted,* faved themfelves by flight. No purfuit was made after thejn, more weighty confiderations occupying their enemies. CHAP^ 21
