There was great slaughter on both sides. The King's captain and his ensign bearer escaping to Paris were hanged. Great want is already felt at Paris, as Charenton chiefly fed it with wheat and flour.

Regrets the divisions and commotions in France. Many of the nobility of France have implored his assistance and declared how many innocent people have been there persecuted on account of their religion contrary to the King's Edict without any redress. Has been credibly informed that on 8th September last there was a meeting of certain cardinals at which it was determined to seize upon certain town and put down the professors of the reformed doctrines by force. If this was not a matter of religion and the Condians were endeavouring to seize on the government he would be ready to assist the King against them.—Heidelburg, 3 Nov. 1567.
