Document 1/8/43 (RRS, iv, no. 45)

Alexander, king of Scots, has received nuns of Coldstream, under his firm peace; he therefore forbids anyone to harm or injure them on pain of full forfeiture; he has also granted to them that no one should seize their poinds for any debt, unless for their own personal debt, excepting his burghs, on pain of full forfeiture. He also commands his justiciars, sheriffs, grieves, and their bailies that they should compel all those in their burghs or bailliaries who owe a debt to the nuns to pay them without delay. He has also granted that they should enjoy all liberties they were accustomed to have in times of his ancestors.
