The duke of Jjurgurçdy made very prudent replies to thefe firft queftions of the king and his uncles ; but when he found an opportunity, he drew his bro* ther the duke of Berry afide, and explained to him how the Ghent men, in the infolence of their pride, were endeavouring to be mailers every where and to deftroy all gentlemen; that they had already burnt and pillaged part of the king-dom of France, which was much to the prejudice and dishonour of the realm, and ought not to b% patiently borne.
