He was carried to the market-place in front of the town-houfe, where all who accompanied him were beheaded before his eyes: in the number • * .John des Marêu was an. upright man, a diftinguifheé wagiftrate and avocat general. He fuffered from the hatred of the dukes of Berry and Burgundy, which was moft invete-rate towards him. " ' ' *
