Excerpt from The History of Wales: Written Originally in British

But as soon as the Roman legion was transported into Gaul, the Picts and Scots returned, and having by a de sperate assault passed the wall, pursued the Britons with a more dreadful and bloody slaughter than formerly. The Britons, perceiving their condition most desperate, once more sent their miserable complaints to fetius, in these tragical words To Etius, thrice consul, the groans of the Britons the barbarians drive us to the sea, and the sea drives us back to them, and so, distracted betwixt two deaths, we are either drowned or eg'ish by the sword.* But they solicited to no purpose: tffe Romans having al ready bid absolutely farewell to Britain, and the empire being cruelly Oppressed by the Goths and other barbarous nations, they were not in a condition possibly to assist them. The Britons, therefore, finding themselves absolutely for saken by the Romans, and conceiving it utterly impracticable to drive away the barbarians by their own strength, saw it urgently necessary to call in the aid of some foreign nation, whose labour in repelling their enemies should be gratefully and satisfactorily rewarded.
