To Philip, king of France. Touching the crusade.

10 Kal. Dec.
(f. 86.)
To Philip, king of France. The pope has received his envoys Guy Capurii, knight, and Master Peter de Verberia, clerk, and in answer to their representations touching the matter of England, intimates that king Edward's envoys came to the pope at Pont de Sorgue in the summer, touching the questions and dissensions between the two kings. The pope answered them in the interests of peace, and is ready to mediate; and is sending Master Philip de Cambarlhaco, archdeacon of Ghent, to the king of England; the king of France will learn from his envoys Master Philip will present himself to the king of France before he crosses over to England. The pope begs king Philip to consult with the said nuncio, and, if king Edward listens to the pope's advice, to join his envoys to those of that king, furnished with powers to treat in presence of the pope.
9 Kal. Dec.
(f. 86d.)
To the king of England. Reminding him of the pope's answers to his envoys last summer, touching the questions between him and the king of France; and requesting him to send envoys to the pope furnished with powers to make a treaty of peace.

(f. 87.)
To the same. The king of France cannot treat with him while he entertains and takes counsel with Robert de Atrabato, a capital enemy and conspirator against the life of that king and of his eldest son. The pope warns king Edward of the dangers his house has incurred by entertaining foreigners, and the indignation caused thereby in his barons and magnates, and desires him to remove Robert, considering that the peace of the realm ought to be dearer to him and to the inhabitants than the presence of the man, about whom Master Philip de Cambarlhaco will give the king private and trustworthy information.
