md of the prelates and barons of the realm, whd will pay attention in the choice to your honour and to that of your kingdom/ * When you fhall have made this remontrance to the king/ faid the duke of Glocefter to the Lon-doners, he will give you an anfwer. Ifhè fhould fay, c We will confider of it,' cut the matter fhort, and declare you will not have any delay ; and preû k the more to alarm him, as well as his minions. Say, boldly, that the country will not longer fufFef it ; and it is wonderful they have borne it fo long. My brother and myfelf will be with the king, and alfo the archbifhop of Canterbury, the earls of Arun-del, Salifbury and Northumberland, but fay nothing fhould we not be prefent ; for we are the principal perfonages in England, and will fécond you in your remontrance, by adding, that what you require is but reafonabie and juft. When he fhall hear us thus fpeak, he will not contradict us, unlefs he be irery ill advifed indeed, and will appoint a day ac-cordingly. This is the advice and the remedy I offer you.* ; . The Londoners replied,—* My lord, you have loyally fpoken ; but it will be difficult for us to find the king and as many lords as you have named, at one time in his prefence/ cNot at all,5 faid the duke : * St. George's day will be within ten days, and the king will then be at Windfor : you may be tare the duke of Ireland and fir Simon Burley will be there alfo. There will be many others. My • brother, myfelf and the earl of Salifbury will be there. 515
