fituation, and thofe of the Englijh in great diforder, as
well by reafon of the King's inability as of the People's
difcontent, took fire at this News, as if the injury had
been done to himfelf. And yet, to look back on the

a rupture, they fhould at leaft have reftored Fougeres to
the Duke of Bretagne, with promife of amends for all da-
mages. But they kept the Place, without ufing any ef-
fectual endeavours to appeafe that incenfed Prince. The
Council, where greater care was taken to introduce the
Queen's and the Duke of Suffolk's Creatures, than Perfons
qualified to manage the publick affairs, feemed to be feized
with a fpirit of inconfideration. To fee the Queen's in-
dolence on this occafion, one would have thought, that
being without Iflue, fhe was in a Plot with the King's
Enemies, to difpoffefs him of all he ft ill held in France.
If fhe, and her Favorites and Minifters, or even the
whole Council, had fuch a delign, they fucceeded but
too well. However that be, the faults they committed
on this occafion, are to be excufed, only by the con-
fideration of the Haughtinefs wherewith Charles acted,
who rendered an agreement impracticable. But, at the

Truce, but were told, it was by way of Reprifals for
pougeres. Thus the War was rekindled at a juncture
very difadvantagious to the Englijh. As they were unpre-
pared, the Duke of Somerfet, Regent of France, was de-
ftitute of Forces, "when lie molt needed them. Charles
had therefore free fcope to pufh his Conquefts. This
gives occafion to believe, the furprize of Fougcres was
unknown to the Court of England. Othcrwife, it muff:
be thought, either the Minifters had loft their fenfes, in
not preparing to fupport their enterprise, or had among
them Traitors, who thereby intended to re-engage the
Englijh in War, before they were ready. Certainly ,
when it is confidered, that the Court was fo remifs to
fatisfv the Duke of Bretagnc, and fo carelefs to prepare
for War, it is hard to know what to think of fuch a

abufe of his Credit with the King, and his impofing
Ximirhvn upon the Council. Hiftorians remark, thrt he cleared
the fa/j At. himfelf from all but the laft Article, relating to the

XI p s°q ?7 Treaty of Truce concluded at Tours, and in feveral fub-
fequent Treaties to prolong it, the Duke of Bretagne
was included only by France. This is a Myftery, not
very eafy to be unravelled. The Duke of Bedford, as
has been related, obliged the Duke of Bretagne to re-
nounce the Alliance of Charles, and acknowledge Henry



Rupture between England and Bretagne. And yet,
Charles took care to comprize the Duke of Bretagne in
the Treaty of Truce, concluded at Tours, whiift the
Englijh mentioned him not. Was it through Negligence,
Forgetfulnefs, or defignedly ? The laft is moft probable.
However, the Duke of Suffolk had in fome meafure re-
