* The old French Romancers, who had corrupted TERMAGANT into TERVAGANT, couple it with the name of MAHOMET as constantly as ours; thus in the old Roman de Blanchardin,

Cy guerpison tuit Apolin,

Et Mahomet et TERVAGANT.” Hence Fontaine, with great humour, in his Tale, intituled La Fiancée du Roy de Garbe, says,

“ Et reniant Mahom, Jupin, et TERVAGANT,
Avec maint autre Dieu non moins extravagant.

Mem. de l'Acad. des Inscript. tom. XX. 4to. p. 352.
As TERMAGANT is evidently of Anglo-Saxon derivation, and can only be
explained from the elements of that language, its being corrupted by the old
French Romancers proves that they borrowed some things from ours.
