France was marching a large army againft him, though he pretended not to believe it, and faid to his people,—c By what means does this young king think to enter Flanders ? He is as yet too young by a year to imagine he can frighten us by his affembling an army. I will have the entrances fo well guarded that it fhall not be in their power for this year to cfofs the river Lis/ He fent to Ghent for the lord de Harzelles. On his arrival, he faid to him,—* Lord de Har-zelles, you hear how the king of France is mak-ing preparations to deftroy us. We muft have a council on this fubject. You fhall remain here, and I will go to Bruges to learn furer in-telligence, and to encourage the citizens of the principal towns. I will alfo eftablifh fuch gar-rifons on the river Lis, and at the chief pafles, that the - French, fhall not be able to advance through them/ The, lord de Harzelles having affented to this, Philip left the fiege, and took the road towards Bruges. He travelled like a lord, having his difplayed pennon borne before him, blazened with his arms : which were three hats argent on a field fable. On his arrival at Bruges, he found Peter du Bois and Peter le Nuitre, the governors of Bruges; and having informed them, that the king of France was marching toward Flanders with a large army, and that it was neceflary to provide a remedy by guarding the pafles, he added,—You, Peter du Bois, muft go to the pafs of Commines, to guard the river - and you, Peter le Nuitre, will defend the bridge of War- v • neton: 159
