The other prisoners are, however, to be set at liberty on both sides ; but upon the understanding, that our lord the king shall take hostages as pledges from such of his prisoners as he shall think fit, and as shall be able to give the same; and from the rest he shall take security by the assurance and oaths of themselves and of their friends.
