If I join the duke, and make my-felf openly one of Tais parties, the kingdom would be diflatisfied, ^and not without reafon -, for the lord de Cliflbn would declare and prove, that the whole hatred our confia the duke bears him ' is for having fupportcd the interefts of France, in which we have fo large a fhare, and it h fo believed throughout the realm. Hitherto' I have had no caufe whatever to incline me to. the duke againft the lord de Cliflbn. It therefore behoves me to diflemble my real fentiments, if I wifh to preferve the favour of the king and country to whom I am bounden by every tie, which is not my cafe with regard to the duke of Brittany. It has happened that my lord the king is indifpofed, and in an alarm-ing ftatc, as you know : this is very much againft* the lord de Cliflbn, and will be hurtful, to all who adyifed him to undertake this expedition, and on which he was fo obftinately bent, in fpite of every thing my brother and myfelf could urge againft it.

Lady, lady, there is no fea- fon but what makes fome return, nor any fortune fiable, nor affli&ed heart but is at times rejoiced, nor angered minds but have their revenge. Cliflbn, la Riviere, Montagu,! le Mercier, de Villaines, mê. D 3 others • . 37
