David, king of Scots, to his chamberlain of Scotland and his officers, deputes, and customars of the burgh of Cupar in Fife: in the grant that he made to Duncan (IV), earl of Fife, his relative, of the great custom of his burgh of Cupar in Fife, he did not intend for the rights of the bishop of St Andrews and his burgesses of that city to be restricted. He wills and concedes to the reverend father in Christ Lord Bishop of St Andrews and his burgesses may freely and peaceably buy wool, skins, and hides and other merchandise within the sheriffdom of Fife and Fothrif, as they did in the time of his father King Robert I and his predecessors. He instructs and commands his officers and the men of the district not to inhibit them in these activities.
16 April 1354
16 April, regnal year 25. Following A.A.M. Duncan in SHR 68 (1989), the regnal year calculation of this document was correct rather than short.
