Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1816 Excerpt: ... having shewed them a steep way through the wood, by which they might escape all danger in their flight.

Many fled to the church, others to other places, and some into the wine-cellar of the castle; but being dragged out into a meadow, and stript naked, they were all put to the sword, not only the men, but also the women, and many of these with child too. Meinier also shut up about forty women in a barn full of hay and straw, and then set it on fire; and after that, the poor creatures having attempted, in vain, to smother the fire with their clothes, which...
