Brieve: NRS GD55/14

Description (from People of Medieval Scotland)

Philip, count of Flanders and Vermandois, notes that he has granted liberty of secure transit throughout his land to the monks of Melrose, and commands and firmly instructs all his men and serjeants to follow these letters as they love him and his honour, and that none should dare to extort exaction from the said brethren in his land or his ports. Moreover, if, by chance, the dissension between English and Flemish merchants is stirred up by this situation, none accepting this opportunity should dare to lay a hand on the said brothers nor anyone to remove their things in security. Therefore, whoever in his land should cause injury or harm to the aforesaid monks, let it be known to him that he will incur the count’s wrath and will be judged by him.
