Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 After Candlemasse, the king departed from Rone to go to Eureux, whither he promised to come in like case, as the Dolphin promised to be at Dreux, to the end that they might aduise vpon a conuenient place where to méet, to intreat of peace to be conclu|ded betwixt the two realms. But the Dolphin by si|nister persuasion of some enimies to concord, brake promise, and came not. When the king saw that tho|rough default of his aduersarie, no treatie would be had, he remooued to Uernon, and there a while remai|ned. Anno Reg. 7. Now from Eureux the king had dispatched the earle of Warwike vnto the siege of la Roch Guion, which fortresse he so constreined,Roch Guio [...] rendered vp. that it was yeelded into his hands, the sixt of Aprill, in the beginning of this seuenth yeare of king Henries reigne, and giuen to sir Guie Buttler late capteine of Rone, of the kings frée and liberall grant.

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 3 4 About the same time, the duke of Excester laid siege vnto Chateau Galiard,Chateau G [...]|liard besieged. which siege continued from the last of March, vnto the latter end of Sep|tember, or (as some write) vnto the twentith of De|cember, as after shall appeare.Yuri taken by assaul [...].

Compare 1577 edition: 1 2 But who euer else was disquieted with this mat|ter, Iohn duke of Burgognie raged and swelled, yea and so much freated therewith, that he wist not what to saie, and lesse to doo: for he knew well that he was neither free from disdaine, nor yet deliuered from the scope of malice, bicause that he onelie ruled the king, and had the whole dooings in all matters about him. And therefore he considered, that all such mishaps as chanced to the state of the common-wealth would be imputed to his negligence and disordred gouerne|ment. To find some remedie against such dangers at hand, he thought first to assaie, if he might by any reasonable means conclude a peace betwixt the two mightie kings of England and France, which if he might bring to passe, he doubted not to reuenge his quarell easilie inough against the Dolphin Charles, and to represse all causes of grudge and disdaine.
