|To the bishop of Aleria (Alerien.). Mandate, as below. The recent petition of Odo Ydugnach, a canon of the monastery of Holy Trinity de Lauda [sic] dey [i.e. dei] alias Balibagam, O.S.A., in the diocese of Meath, contained that on the voidance of the monastery of SS. John and Peter, Clovairde [sic], of the said order and diocese, by the death of abbot James extra R.c., Edmund Ofaelecam and William Dalton, canons thereof, assembled the convent for the election of a new abbot, and that the convent postulated the said Odo, then a secular priest, who consented thereto, and, after he had been received as a canon in the said monastery of Holy Trinity, and after he had made his profession as a canon thereof, John, bishop of Meath, admitted the said postulation by his ordinary authority, translated him from Holy Trinity to SS. John and Peter's, and appointed him abbot thereof and blessed him, (fn. 2) in virtue of which appointment he has obtained possession of the rule and administration and goods. The said petition adding that he doubts whether the said appointment holds good, and the pope having learned that the said monastery of SS. John and Peter is still void as above, he hereby orders the above bishop, if he find the said Odo to be fit, to make provision to him of the said monastery, yearly value not exceeding 16 marks sterling, howsoever it be void. Solicite considerationis. (Gratis de mandato sanctissimi domini nostri pape.) [2¼ pp. In the margin at the end: ‘Sept (embris).’]|
