This year went the army up the Scheldt to Condé, and there sat a year. And Pope Marinus sent King Alfred the lignum Domini. The same year led Sighelm and Athelstan to Rome the alms which King Alfred ordered thither, and also in India to St. Thomas and to St. Bartholomew. Then they sat against the army at London; and there, with the favour of God, they were very successful after the performance of their vows.
