A.D. 117"·] VISIT TO TIIK TOMB OF ST. THOMAS. and to his justices. As a guarantee for the observance of this treaty, the king of Scotland gave up to king Henry anil his successors the castles of Berwick and Roxburgh * for ever; and, if the king of Scotland should ever contravene this treaty, the bishops, carls, and barons of Scotland undertook to oppose him, and the bishops to lay his kingdom under an interdict, until he should return to his duty towards the king of England.
