"The King stopped at nothing to hunt his enemies. He cut down
many people and destroyed homes and land. Nowhere else had he
shown such cruelty.
his shame he made no effort to control his fury
and he punished the innocent with the guilty. He ordered that
crops and herds, tools and food should be burned to ashes. More
than 100,000 people perished
have often praised William in this book, but I can say nothing good
about this brutal slaughter.
God will punish him."
