Note 142
From Chapter 38 of the Decline & Fall

Hoc anno (490) Aella et Cissa obsederunt Andredes-Ceaster; et interfecerunt omnes qui id incolerent; adeo ut ne unus Brito ibi superstes fuerit (Chron. Saxon. p. 15);

an expression more dreadful in its simplicity than all the vague and tedious lamentations of the British Jeremiah.
