... One day, in 620, when Attila, count of Champagne, was out hunting, he came to Verzy, where stood the monastery of St. Basil..  A wild boar, chased by the dogs, ran for refuge to the saint, who was sitting in the sun outside his cell; and Basil covered the terrified beast with his cloak.  The dogs came up, but were at a standstill, not knowing what to do.  Presently the count came to the spot, and recognizing in this incident the finger of God, gave St. Basil a large part of the forest, a part of Bouzy, and the town of Sept-Saulx.—Mgr. Guérin, Vies des Saints, vol. xiii. p. 603. (A Dictionary of Miracles, Brewer, 1894)
