But this command could not be effectually fulfilled. Therefore, his body was conveyed to England, and buried at Westminster, in the following year, on the eighteenth day of October, near Saint Edward, at the head of his father's grave, by the hands of the venerable fathers, the lord Antony, patriarch of Jerusalem, and bishop of Durham, and William, archbishop of York with the other bishops, abbots, and prelates of the whole kingdom.

The Scots were crush'd, Afflicted, beaten, humbled to the dust."
