William, by the grace of God King of Scots, to all good men of his whole land,
clerics and laics, greeting. Know ye that I have rightly given my firm peace to
all who shall come to the fair of Glasgow which I granted to God and Saint
Kentegern, and to the burgh of Glasgow, for repairing thither, and there standing,
and thence rightly returning, provided they do what they ought to do justly and
according to the assise of my burghs and my land. Witnesses, William de Boscho
my clerk, Phillip of Mubray. At Edinburgh, the 27th day of June.
