     campe had bene spoiled, and the tentes throwen downe, at
     the first comming in of the enemies. But they that were
     about Brutus, whose sight served them better, tolde him
     that they sawe a great glistering of harnes, and a number
     of silvered targets, that went and came into Cassius campe,
     and were not (as they tooke it) the armors, nor the number
     of men that they had left there to gard the campe: and yet
     that they saw not such a number of dead bodies, and great
     overthrow, as there should have bene, if so many legions had
     bene slaine This made Brutus at the first mistrust that
     which had hapned. So he appointed a number of men to
     keepe the campe of his enemie which he had taken, and
     caused his men to be sent for that yet followed the chase,
     and gathered them together, thinking to leade them to aide
