Had they not been fuch fkilful foldiers, they could not have held out as they did. - The Englifh and their ^artifans who lay before it, did not gain much advantage, for they were overpowered in two ways : it rained night and day, which hurt both men and ' horfes : added to this, there was fuch a fcarcity of provifion, they had great difficulty in procuring wherewithal to fatisfy their hunger. A loaf was fold there for three old groats. They were diftreffed to obtain any even at fuch a price. Of wines, they had a fufficient quan-tity, which to them were of the greateft comfort. In this fituation, they remained upwards of five -weeks.
