Document 1/52/1 (Ills. Wallace, no. 15)

Andrew Murray and William Wallace, leaders of the army of the kingdom of Scotland and the community, address the mayors and citizens of Lubeck and Hamburg and state that they have been told by trustworthy merchants of the kingdom of Scotland that the mayors and citizens are giving help and favour in all business concerning them and their merchants for which they thank the mayors and citizens. They ask that it be known among the mayors’ and citizens’ merchants that they will now have safe access to all the ports in the kingdom of Scotland, since Scotland, has been rescued from the power of the English by force of arms. [post script: They ask that the business of John Burnett, and John Frere, their merchants, be brought forward, according to the wishes of the addressees.]
