Thofe that efcaped fled to the army,v and related what had pafled; when immediately a detachment was fent to refcue the prifoners. They came up with them near the barriers : the affray then became more ferious; for thofe from the army multiplied fo quickly, that the citizens had enough to do. However, they took the horfes from the carts, and drove them into the town, that if their opponents fliould gain the field? they might not fo eafily carry off the waggons or provifions.

The earl of Montfort was very angry at this, and blamed fir Hervé much for having ordered the retreat
