But on the earl's ‘showing that he was ready to exert himself on the part of the Scots in making peace with England the pope was ready to listen to him. The earl then told the pope that envoys were coming from Scotland, and prayed the pope to grant them a safe conduct, which he was unwilling to do, but would write to the princes and others through whose lands the envoys would have to pass. Afterwards, on the part of Robert de Brus, the earl's uncle, it was stated that as the king of France was about to cross the sea Robert was ready to accompany him, or would come alone if the king declined to do so; to which the pope answered that until peace was made with the king of England it was not fitting that the church should receive them. The earl then promised to labour for peace if the pope would assist him, and write to Robert, giving him the royal title, without which his letters would not be received.

The pope awaits an answer from the king, and is grieved to hear that the king of France has sent an armed force to execute his decrees against the king of England's officers, and to seize castles and places of Aquitaine on account of the homage due. The pope directs the prelates to urge the king to call a council of peaceful men so that a way may be found to make peace.
