The Englifh found nothing but barns full of unthrefhed corn, for it was now after Auguft. They r advanced by eafy marches, withoijt any labour ôr fatigue* until they came to a rich conn- * B^pannie,—a ftrong tefwn of Artois, fix leagues from Arras, f Royt#-«& ftrong town in Picardy, eighteen leagues from Arm • t Hai%—1 ttwn in Picardy, on the Somme, fix leagues from Roye. .
