Similarly, Malcolm granted, and by this his present charter established, to Sir John and his heirs that they must not be troubled by the bailies or servants of the lord king, the justiciars, or Malcolm’s servants or bailies, either outside or inside of the bounds of Luss, regarding the presentation of witness, since Malcolm and his heirs will always be prepared to provide sufficient witnesses from the other men of their earldom in service of the lord King. Malcolm will provide witness as often as it may be necessary. Malcolm promises warrandice.
