From the "Journal of the Siege of Orleans" ("...the Maiden and the other lords and men-at-arms reentered Orleans in great joy, to the very great rejoicing of the clergy and people, who together gave humble thanks to Our Lord, and greatly merited praise, for the very great aid and victories that He had sent and granted to them against the English, ancient enemies of this kingdom. ... That same day and also the next, the men of the church, lords, commanders, men-at-arms, and bourgeois who lived in Orleans made noble and solemn processions and visited the churches with great devotion...")
