A.D. 1200. permitted his servants to receive the money levied upon the carucates in his hands, as had been done in other parts of the kingdom, and why he had beaten one of the servants of the sheriff of York ; and in order that he might repay to the king three thousand marks of silver, which he had owed to Eichard, king of England, his brother. Immediately after his coronation, John, king of England, sent Philip, bishop of Durham, Eoger Bigot, earl of Norfolk, Ilenry de Bohun, earl of Hereford, nephew of William, king of Scotland, David, earl of Huntingdon, brother of the said king of Scotland, Boger de Lacy, constable of Chester, William de V'esci and Robert de Bos, sons-in-law of the said king of Scotland, and Bobert Pitz-Boger, sheriff of Northumberland, to William, king of the Scots, with letters patent from the king, giving a safe conduct for the purpose of bringing the said king of the Scots to the king of England, and naming the morrow of the feast of Saint Edmund as that of his appearance at Lincoln.

After this, on the same day, he and William, king of the Scots, met for 3 conference, outside of the city of Lincoln, upon a lofty hill ; and there, in sight of all the people, William, king of the Scots, 6 9 This is an allusion to the superstitious notion, that misfortune would befall those kings who entered the city of Lincoln.
