Excerpt from The Armourer's Daughter, or the Border Riders, Vol. 3 of 3: A Novel
A brief retrospect of the historical events of the day may be advisable, in order to explain his position with any clearness.
The King of Scotland had at length, through the intercession of the Bishop of Durham, and the Spanish Ambassador, en tared into a truce for seven years with the English monarch; this alliance was here after to be strengthened and confirmed by the betrothal of James to Margaret, Henry Tudor's daughter; from which marriage afterwards sprang the union of the two crowns. Several minor points of disagree ment were to be submitted to the arbitra tion of Ferdinand and Isabella of Spain.
