' lis Handing behind him ; and, after fome mufing, Jie turned round and faid,—€ I perceive clearly that you have well andx honeftly advifed me. I want nothing but good counfel, and yet how can I pretend to cherifh love where I only feel hate? How can I ever love fir Oliver de Cliflbn, who has given me fuch repeated caufes for ha-tred? and the thing I moft repent of in this world is, the,not having put him to death when I had him in my caftle of Ermine/ 'In the name of God, fir/ replied thofe near him, ' had you put him to death, you could never have pofleffed yourfelf of his eftates, for there is an appeal from this duchy to the par-liament of Paris. John of Brittany and the fon of the vifcount de Rohan are his heirs by mar-riage with his two daughters, and would of right have fucceeded to his eftates; and you are much blamed for what you have already done refpectihg the three caftles, by their friends in France. The conftable has made his complaints lo the chamber of parliament at Paris, where fentence will be given againft you, for you have no one there to make anv defence for what he may accufe you of. When you fhall have loft this caufe, fir Oliver de Cliflbn and his heirs will be intitled to follow up the judgment by force of arms ; and, fhould the king and country take part in aflifting them, you muft have a greater power than we know you have at this moment to make any refiftance. It will therefore be more to your advantage, if, while this matter is pending, you furrender up thefe caftles, and be ' thanked
