carl of Arundel, and banilhed England, without reafon, the gcfttle fir Henry of Lancafter, earl of Derby, by whom* and his four promifing fons, the kingdom ought to be fupported ? This cruel conduâ is much aggravated ; for, while they make d\e earl fuffer many difgufts beyond fea, they have difinherited his children of the eftates that de-volved to them from their grandmother, the lady Blanche of Lancafter, by dividing and distributing them daily to thofe who are unworthy to pofleû them. Becaufe thofe two gallant knights, the earl of Northumberland and fir Henry Percy, have ipoken their minds on this fubjeâ, king Richard has alfo banilhed them : it is clear there will not foon be any men of courage and honefty in the country, and hatreds and difcontents are now in-creating every where, fo that if a remedy be not fought for, all things will fall to ruin. The re-medy is in the earl of Derby, who is now iofing his tune in France : him we muft fend for, and, on his arrival, appoint him regent of the kingdom, that he may reform all abufes, and punifh thofe who have ufed him fo ill. Richard of Bordeaux muft: be arretted and confined in the Tower of London, when all his allions will be examined and put into writing, which are fuflkiendy nu-merous, and will prove clearly he is unworthy to govern a kingdom or wear a crown ; his alts are fo infamous, that they will condemn him/ YOL, XII. I CHAP. 113'
