1114. Duke Lothar, having attacked the Slavs with an armed force and progressed to the interior, subjugated a certain region. Since they despaired of salvation, having confessed themselves once tributaries of St. Vitus [i.e., Corvey], for the sake of his honor they were left with their lives by the duke. ... On that same expedition against the interior Slavs, Duke Lothar, had with him in aid Margrave Henry of Stade, who had brought together 300 horsemen of the "Scyrcipensian" Slavs, that is, 100 from each of his burgs.
