THE KING OF SCOTLAND, DURING THE SIEGE OF S CALAIS, INVADES ENGLAND. J HAVE been filent fome time refpe&ing the king • of Scotland ; but until this moment I have not had any thing worth relating of him; for, as I have before faid, mutual truces had been granted be-tween him and the king of England, which had not been infringed. During the time the king of England was carry-ing on the fiege of Calais, the Scots determined to make war upon him, thinking it a good opportu-nity to be revenged for the many difafiers he had brought on them. England had at that time very few men at arms, as the king had a great number with him before Calais, as well as in his other ar-mies in Brittany, Poitou, and Gafcony. The king of France took great pains to foment this war, in order that the Englifh might have fo much to employ themfelves at home as would oblige them to raife the fiege of Calais, and return to England. King David iflued his fummons for a parliament to be holden at Perth ; which was attended by the earls, prelates and barons of Scotland, who were unanimous for invading England as speedily as poffible. Raynald, 185
