    Letters of inter-communing were letters from the Scotch privy council passing (on their act) in the king's name, charging the lieges not to reset, supply or intercommune with the persons thereby denounced; or to furnish them with meat, drink, house, harbor or any other thing useful or comfortable; or to have any intercourse with them whatever,—under pain of being reputed art and part in their crimes, and dealt with accordingly; and desiring all sheriffs, bailies, etc., to apprehend and commit such rebels to prison.
