Document 3/12/44 (CDS, v, no. 211)

Letter from Alexander Comyn to King Edward, he has suffered the dishonour of imprisonment and great loss of his goods because of the king, and is daily likely to suffer more if the king does not provide aid and remedy. The countess of Ross and her son are bound not to rise against the king for the sake of their lord, whom the king has in his keeping. The earl of Sutherland and Lachlan des Ples are loyal to the king, according to their power. Asks the king to believe the shameful things of which his liege man, born in England, will inform him and to command Comyn since he has always been faithful to him and is his sworn man in all things. Asks the king to take counsel for the mischief he has suffered and may suffer in remaining as faithful as he would be to King Alexander if he were alive. Recommends Sir Marmaduke de Tweng and Sir William son of Warin to the king.
