Document 5/0/0 (Stevenson, Docs., ii, no. 454)

Anonymous author writes to his lord [Edward I], noting that his treasurer of Scotland, having caused to be assembled a large troop and having led them to Roxburgh to attack the king’s enemies in the company of the bishop of Glasgow, the earl of Carrick and the Steward of Scotland there, came Sir Henry de Percy and Sir Robert de Clifford to Roxburgh, and brought with them Sir Alexander Lindsay and Sir William Douglas, who told the author that they had received to the king’s peace the enemies on this side of the Scottish sea. The author returned to Berwick to await the arrival of his lord the earl of Warenne. Because Sir William Douglas has not kept the covenants which he made with Percy, he is in the king’s castle of Berwick, in the author’s keeping. The church of Douglas is vacant and worth 200 marks and it if please the king to give it to his treasurer of Scotland, the author believes he will have bestowed it well.
