Seeing that therefore the said commenda is hoped shortly to cease, and that as soon as it ceases the said vicarage will be still void as above, the pope orders the above abbot to collate and assign to the said Philip, who was lately dispensed by authority of the ordinary, as the son of a priest and an unmarried woman, to be promoted to all minor orders and hold a benefice without cure, if found fit, the said vicarage, value not exceeding 3 marks sterling, if and after it become void by the cessation of the said commenda, even if it be actually void by the free resignation of the said Malachy, or in any other way.

12 licet dilectus filius Eugenius alias Huathne Okearuaill, qui se gerit pro clerico dicte diocesis, prefatam rectoriam de Kynealarga, que de iure patronatus laicorum ut prefertur existit, pretextu quarundam litterarum nostrarum necnon acceptationis et prouisionis de illa factarum, per annum et amplius detinuerit prout detinet indebite occupatam, Nos volentes ... It must be supposed, as indeed the use of the word 'pretextu' instead of vigore suggests, that the pope's letters were for some reason surreptitious, possibly because they did not mention the fact, which the pope here repeats, that the rectory was of lay patronage.
