King of England, and you, Duke of Bedford, who call yourself Regent of the kingdom France; you William de la
Pole, Count of Suffolk; John, Lord Talbot; and you Thomas, Lord Scales, who call yourselves lieutenants of the
said Duke of Bedford, do justly by the King of Heaven; render to the Maid who is sent here of God, the King of
Heaven, the keys of all the good cities that you have taken and violated in France. She has come here from God
to restore the royal blood. She is all ready to make peace, if you will deal rightly by her, acknowledge the wrong
done France, and pay for what you have taken. And all of you, archers, companions of war, nobles and others
who are before you; and if this is not done, expect news of the Maid, who will go to see you shortly, to your very
great damage. King of England, if you do not do this, I am Chef de Guerre, and in whatever place I shall find your
people in France, I will make them go whether they will or not; and if they will not obey I will have them all killed.
I am sent here by God, the King of Heaven, each and all, to put you out of all France. And if they will obey I will
be merciful. And stand not by your opinion, for you will never hold the kingdom of France through God, King of
Heaven, son of Saint Mary; it will be thus ruled by King Charles VII, true heritor; for God , the King of Heaven,
wishes it, and this to him is revealed by the Maid, and he will enter Paris in good company. If you will not believe
the news from God and the Maid, in whatever place we shall find you, we shall strike in your midst, and will make
so great a hurrah [hahay] that for a thousand years there has not been one in France so great, if you do not deal
justly. And you may well believe that the King of Heaven will send more strength to the Maid than you will be able
to lead in all your assaults against her and her good soldiers. And when the blows fall we shall see who will have
the better right from God of Heaven. You, Duke of Bedford, the Maid begs you and requires of you that you work
not your own destruction. If you listen to her you will yet be able to come in her company to where the French will
do the finest deed that ever was done for Christianity. And reply to this, if you wish to make peace at the city of
Orleans; and if thus you do not do, you will shortly remember it to your great sorrow.
Written this Tuesday, Holy Week.
