Nevertheless A. got apostolic letters to the abbot of Wardun and his fellow judges, by saying that she was coerced into renouncing her election, and suppressing all mention of what she had done and of the legate's process.

9 Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.

n.d.
(f. 91.)
Letter from the king of the French to the pope in answer to a letter urging him to prolong the truce with the king of England for the sake of the Holy Land and the Albigensian territory. He will do this unless he is obliged to defend himself against the king of England. Although the sons of King John have not the resources of their father, the king of France is unwilling to swear a truce, for he is of advanced age, and is obliged to observe his oath, while the sons of King John are under age, and therefore not so bound, so that he will cause his barons to swear the treaty, in number equal to those by whom the king of England shall cause it to be sworn.
6 Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 91.)
Mandate to Pandulph, bishop elect of Norwich, papal legate, to denounce and publish in each diocese of England as invalid letters obtained about benefices collated by G. cardinal legate, unless full mention be made in them of the deprivation and collation made by him, as it appears that while many clerks were deprived for disobedience, and their benefices given to persons faithful to the king, many of them saying nothing of the cause for which they were deprived, got letters by fraud from Rome, by means of which they disturb the clerks who hold those benefices.
Non. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 91d.)
Mandate to the bishop of Salisbury and Pandulph, bishop elect of Norwich, papal legate, on the petition of the bishop of Winchester, to grant him a faculty to transfer a monastery of nuns from the centre of the city, where they are exposed to the observation and empty talk of passers by, to the church of St. Cross, which he will do at his own and the monastery's cost, and also to place secular canons in the monastery.
Non. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 91d.)
Mandate to Pandulph, bishop elect of Norwich, papal legate, on the intimation of the bishop of Winchester, to order that he and Geoffrey de Cautio, Robert de Clinthamp’ and John de Chin, his clerks and commensals, shall not be summoned by papal letters before any judge except the legate, they being constantly harassed by persons jealous of his fealty to the king, and brought by such letters before judges of whom they are suspicious, and in unsafe places, to the end that they may, through fear, leave their cause undefended, or be brought to a ruinous compromise.
6 Id. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 93.)
Letter of thanks to the king of France for having prolonged the truce with the king of England for four years beyond the term originally fixed. The pope begs him, since he will not himself swear to the truce, to take every precaution that it is kept, not doubting his sincerity, but to make him pay close attention to the terms. [Bouquet, xix. 684.]
3 Non. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 94.)
Indult to the bishop of Carlisle to revoke pensions in the churches of his diocese which have been created or increased contrary to the canons.
5 Id. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 94d.)
Mandate to S. cardinal archbishop of Canterbury, the bishop of Salisbury, and P. bishop elect of Norwich, papal legate, the elections of the archdeacon of Norwich and of Master R. de Eboraco, celebrated in the church of Ely (after R. and the proctors of the other party were examined before the pope), being cancelled, to assign to Master R. so much of the rents belonging to the episcopal income as he had before his election, to be received by him until he receive the equivalent in benefices from the bishop appointed by them.
n.d. Mandate to B. (sic) cardinal of St. John and St. Paul, papal legate [in France] to prevent Lewis, son of the king of France, from seizing the land of the king of England, Poitou and Gascony.
16 Kal. June.

(f. 95.)

Kal. May.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 96d.)
Confirmation to the abbot and convent of St. Mary's, York, of their liberties, immunities, and customs.
12 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.

Mandate to Pandulph, bishop elect of Norwich, papal legate, on the intimation of W. the marshal, earl of Pembroke, after examination had, to remove Master P. Malvicinus, canon of St. Patrick's, Dublin, of illegitimate birth, from the church of Ossory, of which the earl has the right of patronage. It appears that, during the voidance of that see, Master P. without a dispensation, attempted, in the hope first of election and then of postulation, to put himself into the church and minister in it, and that when he came with four canons to ask for confirmation from the archbishop of Dublin, he procured certain letters to be sealed with the seal of the chapter, by which, as far as he could, he bound the church in a sum of 500 marks, although the chapter had expressly forbidden any letters, except those of procuration, to be scaled. It is feared that there are others sealed, to the great injury of the church of Ossory, as the letters of archdeacon G. and official R., sent to the pope by the said marshal, fully declare.
8 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 100)
Indult to the convent of Glastonbury to retain for their own use during six years, for hospitality and alms, all churches of their advowson falling void, on condition that they appoint fit persons as vicars to be presented to the bishop, it appearing that their monastery suffers loss by the composition between them and the bishop of Bath, on the dissolution of the union.
5 Kal. June.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 100d.)
Confirmation to the prior and convent of Glastonbury of the grant of pope Celestine that their abbots for the time being might use pontifical insignia and have licence to bless priestly vestments.
