Note 060
From Chapter 70 of the Decline & Fall

This predatory expedition is related by Froissard (Chronique, tom. i. p. 230), and in the life of Du Guesclin (Collection Generale des Memoires Historiques, tom. iv. c. 16, p. 107-113). As early as the year 1361, the court of Avignon had been molested by similar freebooters, who afterwards passed the Alps (Memoires sur Petrarque, tom. iii. p. 563-569).
