Shortly after, the earl of St. Pol tfent to Pont de St. Remy on the Somme, where fome Englifh were colle&ed. The earl ordered them to be attacked. There was a grand fkirmifh, with many valorous deeds of arms. His eldeft fori, Galeran j was created a knight, and did honor to his new knighthood. The Englifh were fo roughly handled, that they were either flain or made prifoners, and the bridge and fort conquered by the French. In fhort, the whole territory and county of Ponthieu were freed from the Englifhj fo that none remained who could any way do mifchief. News was brought to the king of England, whd was at London, how thofe of Ponthieu had deferted him, and turned to the French. The king was much enraged at this, and at firft had intentions of feverely retaliating upon thofe of the hoftages who were ftill in London ; but he thought it would be cruel to make them anfwerable for his ill fortune. Neverthelefs, he fent all the citizens who had been given as hoftages from the cities and principal towns of France, to other towns, caftles and forts in his kingdom, and did not allow them the fame liberty they had before enjoyed. He ranfomed the earl dauphin d'Auvergne for thirty thoufand francs, and the earl of Porcien for ten thoufand. The lord de Roye, however, remained in prifon, in great peril ; for, as he was not in any favour at the court of England, he was obliged to endure much ill treatment, until delivered by accident and great good fortune, as you will bear in the continuance of thië hiftory. 39» CHAP-
