67. Selby to Walsingham. [Nov. 16.]
Whereas I signified that the Laird of Sesfourd warden of the Middle March of Scotland, and I, had appointed a meeting for Tuesday the 22nd instant, this day I hear from him that he cannot keep it, having to ride to the King at Edinburgh, but will appoint another day on his return. The most of the gentlemen of the East and Middle Marches are gone to Edinburgh. "The King sent ane officer at arms to the Lord Olipbantes house called Dipling, wher the Lord Oliphant dwelt, and wher the trouble was betwene the Master of Oliphant and the Lord Ruthven, and commaunded hym to delyver the house to the Lard of Weinnis called Colving, whoe is equall frend to both parties. The Lord Oliphant obeyed his charge and deliverid the house to the lard of Wemmis, who is in it at this present. It is supposed that the matter wilbe mitigated by frendes, and not come to any extremitie. It is thought that the Earle of Argile who was proclaymed lieutenant of the frontiers, and had appointed to be at Jedbrough the 18th of this instant moneth, cannot keape that appointment." Berwick. Signed: Jhon Selbye.
