A letter from the nobility, barons, and commons of Scotland, in the year 1320, yet extant, under all the seals of the nobility, directed to Pope John: wherein they declare their firm resolutions to adhere to their king, Robert the Bruce, as the restorer of the safety, and liberties of the people, and as having the true right of succession. But, withal, they notwithstanding declare, that if the King should offer to subvert their civil liberties; they will disown him as an enemy, and chose another to be king for their own defence. Translated from the original, in Latin, as it is inserted by Sir George Mackenzy of Rosehaugh, in his Observations on precedency, &c.
