The king shall also give another fifty thousand marks of silver to the emperor and the duke of Austria, and shall give hostages for the same, namely, to our lord the emperor, sixty hostages for thirty thousand marks, and to the duke of Austria, seven hostages for twenty thousand marks. And when the hundred thousand marks shall have been paid and the hostages given, the king shall be at liberty
