by fir Robert: Knolles and the two knights wh& were fent to him* with about one hundred men at arms and two 'hundred archers. There was a fhort delay at Southampton, waiting for a favour-able wind, where diey embarked. They landed at Guerrartde*, and rode on to Vannes. The inhabitants of that city received the duke with great demonftrations of joy, as indeed did the whole country when they heard of his arrival. The duke refrefhed himfclf for five days, or thereabouts, in Vannes, and then went to Nantes : there fee was waited on by barons, prelates, knights, ladies and damfels, who all offered their Cervices, and put themfelves under his obedience. ^ They greatly complained of the French, and of the con-ftable, who had quartered himfclf in the country ncftt- Rennes. The duke fàid ; f My friends, I fhall fhortly have -aid from England ; for without the affiftance of the Eriglifh, I fhàll not be able to defend myfelf againft the French ; otherwife they wiH % be too ftrong for m3 feeing that we are not all in this country of one mind. But when the fortes which the king of England has proitiifed fhall be arrived, if they have done'you wrongs, we will return them the compliment.' This fpeech greatly pleafed thofe of the duke's party who were prefent. In this year, about St. Andrew's day, died the ' lord Charles, king of Germany and emperor of • Gaerrande,—a town in Brittany, between the river* Vilaine and Loire, diocefe of Nantes. . . Rome. 148
