William Wallace and the Scottish resistance

 

Letter by Andrew Murray and William Wallace

This letter, often referred to as the Lübeck letter, is the only surviving document issued by William Wallace.

The letter was sent in 1297, to advise European trade partners that Scottish ports were open for trade, as Scotland had been freed from English control.

The letter came a month after Wallace had defeated the English at the battle of Stirling Bridge, in September 1297, and is thought to carry the only known impression of William Wallace’s own seal.
