Well, would have been nice if they’d translated the full letter for context. It sounds like an endorsement or letter of recommendation of sorts...to further Wallace’s aims in country. A rally of support?

All Saints’ Day is November 1st—someone must have misread the number. I don’t know if they would be using Arabic numerals this early (where it would be easy to misread a 1 as a 7).
Very cool! Thanks for posting!

Perhaps someone can find Scotland’s lost spine and return it to them.

Weren’t there two popes at the time? One under the thumb of Phillip the Fair in Avignon and the other in Rome?

Gawd I love that. Yo, take care of my homeboy.
I second the Very Cool!
Wha’ hae, Scotland!
One of the first patriot fighters...
I can remember seeing BRAVEHEART because it was a Mel Gibson film. I hadn't a CLUE as to who William Wallace was.
Even after all the hoop-la about it people still didn't connect the dots....Scottish freedom fighter. They still thought it was a film about American Indians.
I thought it was a GREAT movie though I don't watch it anymore....way too sad.
Pope John XXII secured Scotland’s freedom in 1320 when Scotland was recognized as a sovereign country.
However, many of its children who immigrated to this country, and who seem to post here on FR, seem to have forgotten that fact.
Scotlands freedom was subsequently secured, however, when Pope John XXII recognized the countrys independence in 1320.
Freedom was secured by the herculean efforts of Robert the Bruce and the Scots, not by some Pope in Rome.
