Document 1/26/19 (CDS, i, no. 2126)

King Henry writes to King Alexander [III], noting that Alexander’s envoys, Adam (of Makerstoun), provost of the city of St Andrews, and Thomas de Normanville, had diligently related to Henry what had been enjoined on them by the Alexander’s parliament at Edinburgh. Henry was unable to send the persons whom the envoys thought should be appointed, on the day fixed, as three of them were overseas at the time. Since then the king has convened his parliament at Oxford and plans to set out against the Welsh rebels. He therefore asks Alexander to prorogue his parliament until the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Mary (8 September), at a nearer and more convenient place.
