William of Ruthven, lord of Ruthven, has seen, heard and fully understood the charter of Sir Walter son of Alan, his father, produced for, and granted to, Scone Abbey [which is copied in full]. He states that since the seal of his late father, Sir Walter, [which was] appended to the charter, was broken and thoroughly torn away and removed by hostile malevolence, he gives, grants and also established by his present charter to the abbot and canons of Scone, in free, pure and perpetual alms, by the consent and assent of Sir Walter, his son and present heir, who similarly saw and heard the said charter, for the salvation of his soul and his ancestors and successors, the tenor of the charter of his father, to be approved and ratified in all its dots and tittles, with the aforesaid tofts, by their bounds, and the fishing of karnes, with the pertinents, common pasture, and easements in the charter.
