They make known that they have made firm and established those things treated and agreed at Salisbury concerning the settlement of the estate of their dear lady Margaret, queen and heiress of Scotland, and of her realm, in the presence of their lord Edward, king of England, in the below written form: When Erik, king of Norway, and Margaret, his daughter, lady queen heiress of Scotland, had asked by messengers (that is, Sir Terry de Champs de Jeu, Piers Algod and Guthorn de Aseleye), lord Edward, king of England, that he appoint, aid and counsel how the aforesaid queen, his niece, should she can rule and enjoy [it] as other kings do in their kingdoms, Edward, for the good and peace of Scotland, sent his letters to the guardians of Scotland that they should send certain named persons; which guardians, at Edward’s request, sent the bishops of St Andrews and Glasgow, Sir Robert Bruce, lord of Annandale, and Sir John Comyn, who came to Salisbury at Michaelmas last past. To which place Edward sent the bishops of Winchester and Durham and William de Valence, earl of Pembroke, and John, earl of Warenne, who came to the same place of parley for treating between the aforesaid messengers of the king of Norway and his daughter and the afore-named persons of Scotland, who, after much discussion and great debate, submitted in this way: the aforesaid lady shall come to England or Scotland before 1 November 1290, quit and free of all contract of marriage and espousal, which the messengers of Norway have promised to procure in good faith. The king of England has promised that if the lady comes, quit and free of all contract of marriage and espousal, that when the kingdom of Scotland is in good and secure peace, he is to be required by the good men of Scotland to send her to the kingdom of Scotland also quit and delivered of all contract of marriage, as he received her, with the proviso that the good people of Scotland have made good and sufficient surety for receiving her to the king of England that they will not marry her without his ordinance, desire and counsel, and by the assent of the king of Norway, her father. Those from Scotland have promised in good faith for themselves and for the other people of Scotland that they, before she comes, shall secure the land, and shall make surety there that she can come safely into her kingdom, as the true lady, queen and heiress; and that concerning this they shall make all the sureties which the messengers of Norway say they are able to make. And moreover, the parties agree that at mid Lent the men of Scotland shall come to Roxburgh, and the men whom the king of Scotland shall send, at the request of those of Scotland or Norway, shall be in the parts of Wark or Carham on the same day. At which day those of Scotland have promised in good faith to affirm and accomplish the things said before, and also well establish the sureties, with the other things that touch the amendment of the kingdom of Scotland, in the presence of those who the king of England has sent there at the day and place named before, so they can see that these things are accomplished in good form. And for greater security and stability they have appended their seals.
