Jûm mâ hm men faw them plainly, though they made not any appearance of being difcompofed by it. Pecer du Bois faid,—c Let us continue our road with a good ftep; without breaking our ranks ; if they attack us, we will receive them, but I do not believe they have any fuch intentions.* Thus each party marched on, without doing any thing, as far as Ghent, when the lord d'An-ghien returned to the carl, and Peter du Bois with his men entered the town. Peter du Bois was very badly received, and on the point of being killed, for not having exerted himfclf to aflift Raffe de rfarzelle. Peter exculpated himfclf, fay-ing truly, 4 that he had fent orders to Rafle not to engage with the earl on any account, without being joined by him, for that the earl was in too • great force ; but that Rafle had done quite the contrary : that if bad fuccefs had attended him, he could not by any means be blamed : that he was as much grieved for the death of Rafle as any one, for the town of Ghent had loft a valiant man and good captain. It will therefore be neceflary for you to choofe another, one who has a good repu-tation and will be feared ; who is bold, wife and rprudent ; or otherwife put yourfclves under the obedience of the earl, who will deftroy us all, by wickedly and cruelly putting us to a fhameful death. Now, confider what you will do : either prefevere in what you have begun and carried on for fo long a time, or, throw yourfelves on the " tncrcy of my lord the earl of Flandçrs/ None made any anfwer to this fpeech of Peter du ' 808
