However, the king of Scotland refused to come, but sent again to the king of England, Eoger, bishop of Saint Andrew's, and Hugh Malebise, whom the king of England had sent for him, and demanded that the king of England should restore to him Northumberland and Cumberland ; and if he did not, he was to know for certain that, to the best of his ability, he would gain possession of the same ; and for receiving the king's answer on the subject, he appointed a truce of forty days, while he himself, in the meantime, levied a large army.

Farewell." This was accordingly done : but the king, acting upon bad advice, after the time of Pentecost, retained in his own hands the rents of the manors ;making_prómise,~tnat on the return " ; ~* not " Hugh."
