A.D. 1093. ravages of the scots. 177 to the wish of some of the chief men of England, peace might be renewed and there might exist a lasting friendship between them ; they separated, however, without coming to terms. Eor William, in his excessive haughtiness and pride, contemptuously refused to see Malcolm or to treat with him. In addition to this, he also wished to force him to make redress in his own court solely according to the judgment of his own barons, but Malcolm utterly declined to do so, unless the conference were held upon the confines of the two kingdoms, where the kings of the Scots had been in the habit of making redress to the kings of England, and in conformity with the opinion of the nobles of both kingdoms. Shortly after these events, a very wonderful sign appeared in the sun. In the same year, Roger, earl of Shrewsbury, Guido, abbat of Saint Augustine's, and Paulinus, abbat of the church of Saint Alban, departed this life.

For, on five occasions he had afflicted it with dreadful ravages, and had carried off its wretched inhabitants in slavery ; the first time in the reign of king Edward, when Egelwin was bishop of Durham, at the period when Tosti, the earl of Northumbria, « had gone to Bome ; the second time in the reign of king WBliam, the above-named Egelwin being still bishop, on which occasion, Cleveland was laid waste ; the third time, in the reign of the same king WiBiam, when Walcher was bishop of Durham, at which period he proceeded as far as the river Tyne, and after having slaughtered multitudes of men and burned many places, returned with a large amount of booty ; 94 De Mowbray.
