John MacSween writes to Sir Edward, king of England and lord of Ireland, noting that he was in the company of Sir Hugh Bisset, and with the king’s navy until he came to Scotland, and after the king retreated from Glasgow to Bothwell Castle. After the retreat of his navy from Bute, he went to his land of Knapdale (ARG), which the king had conferred upon him by his letters patent. It was here that John of Argyll entered the said land with an army and with great power on the part of Sir John of Menteith, and prohibited him from having the land; whereby John of Menteith is the king’s adversary. He prays and asks the king that he send a letter to John of Argyll, if he believes him to be in the king’s peace, so that he might deliver his land of Knapdale to him.
