Their only care was. to fave themfelves, and fly from their ene-toies. Had the garrifon of Grave known of this defeat of the Brabanters, they would have greatly gained by it, and killed or brought back many of the runaways. They were not made acquaint-ed with it until late, when they fallied forth, and took poffeffion of tents, pavilions, and warlike engines the Brabanters in their fright had left behind, which they brought at their leifure into Grave, for there were none to oppofe them. Thus was the fiege of Grave broken up, to the great lofs of the Brabanters. News was fpread far and near, how a handful of men had over-thrown forty thoufand and raifed the fiege of Grave. The lord de Bourgueval and the lord de Linieres were made prifbners, with others to the amount of feventeen banners. Thefe and the pennons you will find hung up before the image of our Lady at Nimeguen, ' that the perpetual remembrance of this victory may be kept up. 114 CHAP.
