From the testimony of a citizen
of Orleans named Jean de Champeaulx, who testified on March 16, 1456
("...Having celebrated Mass, she said that
they should look to see if the English were facing them, and
they replied no; they were instead facing towards the fortress of
Mehun [Meung-sur-Loire]. Having heard this she said, 'In God's name,
they are going; let them leave, and let us go give thanks to God
and not pursue them any further, for it's Sunday.'")
