A late-thirteenth-century king of Scots addresses all his men of the Kintyre, Argyll and Lorn and firmly commands and orders them to be attentive, responsive, united, [and] helpful to Alexander of Argyll, to whom the care and custody of the islands and his other lands [has been given], and in the protection and defense of those islands and his lands. And similiarly [he asks them] to distrain everything which is anything owed to him in his chamber, without any postponement, and additionally to levy the king's debt, if it is necessary, through the same Alexander, who they should summon.
