* The duchefs of Glocefter, her Ha Humphreyf and her two daughters, were fbrcly grieved when the body of the duke arrived. The duchefs had double caufe of affliction, for the earl of Arundel, her uncle, had been publicly beheaded in Cheap-lîdc by orders of the king. No baron nor knight dared to interpofe, nor advife the king to da ©therwife, for he was himfelf prefent at the exe-cution, which was performed by the earl's fon-in-law, the earl marfhal, who bandaged his eyes. The earl of Warwick ran great rifle of fuffering the fame death, but the earl of Salifbury, who was in favour with the king, interceded for him, as did many other barons and prelates. The king liftened to their folicitations, on condition he were lent to a place he could not leave, for he would never abfolutely pardon him, as he was deferving death, for having joined the duke of Glocefter and the earl of Arundel in their attempts to annul the truce which had been figned and fealed by the kings of France and England, for themfelves and allies* This alone was a crime to be punifhed by an ignominious death : for the conditions of the treaties were, that whoever fhould break or in-fringe them was to be fo punifhed. The carl of Salifbury was very earned in his Applications for the earl of Warwick. They had been brothers in arms ever fince their youth ; t and he excufed him on account of his great age, and of his being deceived by the fair fpecches of- the duke of Glocefter and the earl of Arundel : that what had beta done was not from his inftigation* 99
