The Haughty Frenchmens pride abased, or, A True relation of a bloody skirmish which lately happened betwixt a company of Spaniards, and a company of Frenchmen the one party belonging to the Spanish ambassadour, the other to the French ambassadour, both now resident in London : the ground of this quarrel was their striving for superiority who should follow next after our Kings coach, the Frenchmen would have had the vpper-hand, but the Spaniard would not permitt them, and hereupon the contention grew so strong that they fell to fighting with their naked swords in good earnest, and in this bloody skirmish some of the Frenchmen and horses were kil"d, several others wounded, and they in the end were forced to retreat, and yield the victory to the Spaniards : thus was done on Tower-Hill the 30th of September 1661 : tune is, My love is gone to Jamaico.
