Not illustrated. 1863 edition. Excerpt: ...capta praeda ejusdem vici, Priorem Hagustaldensem, quem contigit eadem nocte ibi adesse, contumeliis et ludibrio dehonestaverunt. Super injuria hac, satis compatienti animo, legatus regem expostulavit apud Karlel, et ad correctionem violentia e hujus animos regios adduxit. Per triduum vero cum episcopis et principibus regni Scottiae, qui ei ex regio praecepto ibi occurrerant, quae corrigenda erant correxit, et quae statuenda erant statuit.
