Memorandum that on 11 June 1304 lord William of Lamberton, bishop of St Andrews, and the nobleman Sir Robert de Bruce, earl of Carrick and lord of Annandale, came together at Cambuskenneth to talk about future perils which they wish as far as possible to avoid, and to resist prudently attacks by rivals, they have undertaken a bond of friendship in the following form: that is, that they will be of one another’s counsel in all their business and affairs at all times and against whichever persons, and to provide aid and power to one another at all times and without pretence. Neither will attempt any arduous business without consulting the other, and each will warn the other of any danger and try to safeguard against it. They have given an oath to observe these terms under a penalty of £10,000.
