Also, that the king should make payment immediately to the earl of one thousand marks of silver ; and that as soon as he should receive the earl's daughter, the latter should have at least another thousand marks of silver; and that whatever should remain unpaid of the five thousand marks, the earl should receive the same when the marriage should have taken place between the king's son and the earl's daughter, either by reason of lawful age or throughthe dispensation of the Church of Rome.
