They direâly . pulled down their tents afcd pavilions, flung them into the baggage-waggons, and took to their heels;1 without waiting for any one, or keeping any order or regular road. When the two commanders heard of this, they: got up in the greateft hade, and ordered large fires? and torches to be lighted : they mounted theirhorfes, and, galloping after the Flemings, faid to; them, 6 Sirs, tell us what has ailed you, that .you fly thus, when no one purfues you ; you ought to.r think yourfelves very fecure, and yet you are ftill going on. Return back, for God's fakè : you are, exceedingly to blame, to run away without being purfued.' But, notwithftanding ail their entreaties, they would not flop, and each took the neareft way hè could find to his own home. , Thefe lords, perceiving they could not prevail with them, ordered their baggage to be packed up: ki the waggons, and came to the fiege of Tournay, where they related to the chiefs what had happened: to the Flemings, which furprifed all; fome faid, they muft have been bewitched.- CHAP.
