This refolution was adopted. They marched their men in -an oppofite direction to the Englifh, through fo-refis and over mountains, and laid wafle the whole country on their line, burning towns, vil-lages and houfes. The inhabitants of Scotland carried their provifioris to their retreats in the forefls, where they knew the Englifh would ne* ver feek for them. The Scots barons marched haflily through their own country ; and thç king, not being well enough in health to accom-pany them, retired into the highlands, where he remained during the war, and left his fubjects to act as well as they could. The French and Scot? palTed the mountains which divide Cumberland from Scotland, and entered England, when thejr began to burn tlie country and villages, and to commit great devaftations on the lands of Mow-bray, belonging to the earl of Nottingham, on thofe of the earl of Stafford, as well as on the lands of the baron of Grifop* and of the lord Muf-grave, and then continued their march to Carlifle. * Crisop.
