ajid the aiTaffinations in the streets and hou
fes were numberless. The prisons were al
crammed full, and it was expe&ed they weii
loon to be cleared by a general maflacre, for
provisions were become so scarce that with
out a very great reduction of the number of
mouths the people mud soon be reduced to
eat each other. At Lyons rhat was said to
be already the c;ife —and as'the army had
secured what little provisions there was, the
miserable inhabitants have risen en masse and
fought defperattly with knives, flicks, and
any other weapons they could meet with,
that in (hort, no description could equal the
1, errors that reigned thro' all the south of
France ; and nothing prevented an immedi

people, except the soldiers, who feenied de
