At the recent petition of John Morton, rector of the said church, containing that the above addition is not true and that the said grant is greatly and manifestly prejudicial to the said church and rector, and that dissensions and scandals will probably arise, the pope hereby orders the above to summon the said parishioners and others concerned, and if they find the said rector's statement true, to annul the said grant and any papal letters about it which they may find, and its consequences, etc. Intentus semper salutis operibus.
