And further, as to the other side, he has ceased to have any right, if ever ho did have any such right. And this we are prepared to show by the abovenamed instrument, in which is contained a truce for ten years; wherefore, king Sancho makes complaint, because it is true, that king Alphonso has violated his promise made in the treaty aforesaid. For he has received injury within those ten years, by being deprived of the following castles, Eel, Legiun, Malvcrsin, and Portela. In addition to the above, the king of Navarre demands restitution by the king of Castille, of the sum of one hundred92 marks of silver, king Sancho, who now reigns over the kingdom of Navarre, hereby offering satisfaction to the king Alphonso, upon all his complaints, according to the arbitration of the barons of them both, or of the most serene king of England.

This being accordingly done, the earls and barons of the royal court of England adjudged that full restitution should be made to caeh of the parties above-named of what he had rightfully claimed.
