      This was a small detached fort that formed the apex of a triangle with the great bastilles of the Tournelles and Augustins, at a considerable distance, but near enough to annoy or cut off the communications in the rear of an attacking force. Orders had been given, in case of molestation, that the garrison should evacuate St. Jean-le-Blanc, and retire to the Augustins. This circumstance unhappily furnished the Lord Scales and the youthful chivalry who held the fortress of the Augustins with a pretence for disobeying the strict command they had received, by making a sally as if to cover the retreat of their countrymen.
