The bearer is Bastien Michiel, merchant (blank) subject
of the French king, who has been resident at Paris for 8 or 10 years. He
is coming from London and goes to Paris, charged by the King, my master,
with matters of importance. I beg you not to hinder him on the way, but
give him a certificate which may be of use to him on the other frontiers, with
the company of the post of this town.

|R. O.||The Archbishops of Canterbury. (fn. 2)|
Copy of Charter 3 April 18 Henry III., granting to the Abp. of
Canterbury and his successors the right to dispose by will of their goods,
whether grain sown in their lands or other.
Large paper, pp. 2. In Wriothesley's hand.
A scheme of fees to be paid for dispensations, for monks or canons to
hold benefices, or to leave their habits; for priors or abbots to use mitre and
staff; for pluralities and various other cases affecting monks and clergy; and
for marriages in different degrees of affinity. The fees are in most cases six
in number, ranged in two divisions; first, to the King, the Chancellor, and
the clerk; and second, to the Archbishop, the Commissary, and the scribe.
The lowest dispensations on the list are for a marriage in the fourth degree
ignorantly contracted, and a "dispensacio de non promovendo ad biennium,"
in each of which cases (there being no payment to the King and civil officers)
the fees amount to 10 shillings. The highest is that for a prior or abbot to
use mitre and staff, the amount being 47l. 10s.

|R. O.||Alain Lemelenec.|
Complaint of Alain Lemelenec, factor of Francois du Com, merchant
of Brittany, that he had been plundered by two ships, whose captain was
named Cauoree (Calverley ?), commissioned by the King to guard the west
coast against the Scots. Has been a year and a half unable to obtain
redress. On the 1st Jan. last the Council admitted the facts, and caused the
goods taken to be appraised by commissioners, who sent in a report under
their signatures to Cromwell ("Mr. Cramouel") on the 13th March.
