[…] were afraid that the army would attack them to burn and destroy their lands. They were told that the king would have seized all the middle people of Scotland to send them in his army beyond the Scottish sea, to their great damage and destruction. They took counsel to assemble their forces, until they could have a treaty and conference with such persons as had power to abate and diminish such a kind of disturbance. Therefore, when the English army entered into the land, they came to meet them, and had such a conference that all of them [came into] the peace and fealty of the king […] departed, whereof the said bishop, earl of Carrick and Steward of Scotland will assure, if you [the earl of Warenne?] would believe. For preservation of the peace and the profit of the king, they have sent you this advice, which he will tell you verbally. That is to say that you cause firm and settled peace to be published and proclaimed throughout the realm of Scotland, and that you confirm the proceeding of Sir Henry de Percy and Sir Robert de Clifford, and afterwards, that you will deliberate and to speak for their good to the king. […] Therefore you ought to confirm them and be willing to grant them letters of friendship, for they do no consider the peace to be firm and settled if you will not confirm it by your letter. In witness of which I, Walter Cammoys, official of the archdeacon of Teviotdale, have affixed the seal of the officiality to this writing.
