• Tbfi duke expeâeâ nothing lei; for he kiiew he had angered the Jrfng of France, as well as thofe of his council : but his hatred againft the conftable was fo deep, it deprived him of the' ufe of his rca-fon; and he forely repented that, when in his power, he had not put him to death. Things re-named in this ftate a confiderable time. The duke refided at Vanmes, but feldom went abroad for fear of ambufcades : he paid great court to the principal cktes and towns m the duchy, and made fecret treaties with the Ehglifh : he alfo garrifoned his ftrong places the fame as in times of war. His opi-nion continually varied, as to what had pafled: fometimes he faid, he wHhed he had not arretted the conftable ; at others, to «xeufe himfelf, he declared that Clifibn had fo grievoufly infuited him, he had good reafon for what he had done. This conduâ had caufed him to be feared in the country ; for that lord hath fmall authority who is not feared by his fubjeâs * ; for whenever he pleafes he may be at peace with them. We will now leave the duke of Brittany, and re-turn to. the affairs of England, which, at this mo* 9eat, were m a troubled and dangerous ftate. * Gar c*eft petite feigneurie de feigneur qui n'eii craint «t itwbtédefeiigeni» SOS CHAP.
