Woodftock, duke of Glocefter,4RPJRL of Effex and Buckingham, and conftable of England, would no way liften to it; telling his friends fecretly, that he would never ' agree to any peace with France, whatever negotiations might be taken in hand on the fubjeft, if it were not an honourable one; that all the towns, caftles and lordfhips which were yielded to England, but had fince been fraudulently taken back, mud be reftored, and the fum of 1400,000 francs, which had remained unpaid by the French when they began the war, muft sACo be paid down. He declared, that as long as he lived he lhould never change thefe fen-' timents ; in which he was joined by many of the barons of England, particularly the earl of Arundel, who privately faid the duke of Glocefter was in the right, though they diffembled their opinions in public from feeing how much the king of England was bent upon peace. The poorer knights and archers were of courfe, for war, as their fole livelihood depended upon it. When thefe things are confidered, and the claims of the French, it will be very clear nothing like peace could be concluded. The French demanded tp have Calais deftroyed, and poffeffion given them of the lordfhips of Guinçs, Hames, Merle and Oye, with the lands of Fretin and the dépendances of Guines as far as the river that runs by Grave* lines. True it is, the king of France and his - commiffioners were willing to give up to the king of England and his heirs as many lands in Aquitaine of equal or more value as to revenue T4 . THAN 27§
