He also wills and grants that everyone dwelling in the burgh with the burgesses may participate in the market and be held to pay the king's aids and may be compelled to take on other burdens alongside the burgesses. Moreover, he wills and grants that no-one in the sheriffdom of Forfar may buy wool, pelts or hides except the burgesses of Dundee, excepting those who have the liberty of buying by charter of infeftment. He also wills and grants that the burgesses will only respond to the king's chamberlain for the payment. The burgesses will be free to buy merchandise in the vill of Cupar in Fife.
