Matilda, spouse of the late Richard of Lincoln, lord of Mow, has discharged and given up, out of the feeling of guilt and remorse, to the lord abbot and convent of Kelso all cause and complaint which she had or was able to have against them. She gives, grants and by the present charter establishes to Kelso Abbey the whole gift or third of land which Kelso accepted at ferme from the Richard of Lincoln, her late spouse, in the town of Mow (ROX). She wishes and grants that the said land may be held and possessed without claim or impediment from her, her heirs, procurators, assigns or anyone else, with every condition, agreement, freedom and facility which the charter of agreement between Kelso Abbey on the one part and Richard, her spouse, on the other, contains, save the multure, including the stipulation that Kelso will provide for William, her son, in victuals, with better and more suitable schools which they will rebuild in the poor house on the land that they will hold in their hands. All this she granted in her free widowhood.
