Jan. anno3 (1373), desiring, as far as his conscience allowed, to please the king and hoping for a good concord (concordia), made the following declaration on the said articles:—(i) That all causes which, arising out of benefices said to have become void in regalia, are carried on at the apostolic see and in the king's court or either of them, shall be suspended at the said see from the present date until the Nativity of St. John Baptist, provided that the same be done in the king's court; and at the end of that term the said causes, those namely which are being ventilated (ventilantur) at the apostolic see, unless they be meanwhile settled or the term be extended, shall be resumed in statu quoas if they had not been suspended; (ii) that those who possess or shall be in possession of benefices in the realm by apostolic authority shall remain in such possession unmolested; (iii) that if, meanwhile, cathedral churches, monasteries, prelatures, or dignities become otherwise void—from whose voidance the king pretends to have the presentation in the case of benefices in litigation, or in the case of any others whatsoever which were collated or to be collated by the apostolic see before such voidance—the king shall introduce no innovation with respect to such benefices on the occasion of their voidance in prejudice of the said litigants or of others who had such collation nor shall such voidance be allowed to prejudice them; so that a concord (concordia) may be treated of between the Roman church and the king, to be made by envoys sent either to the Roman court or to England (illuc), and the pope is content that the king shall have the choice of place (hic vel ibi), but shall signify his wish to the pope within four months from the present date, certifying the same by his authentic letters sealed by his own seal, otherwise the suspension shall be null and void; (iv) further, the pope ordered that in all causes which are being ventilated in the Roman court, not concerning the regalia, personal citations shall be suspended for a year from the present date, and the causes be proceeded with by proctors: and in regard to like causes to be brought to the Roman court within the said year, the pope has ordained that if the parties ask for a personal citation, he will commit the causes to Cologne, Li`ge, or Flanders, or places near to England, where the parties can safely appear, or if they please the suit shall be carried on by proctors in the Roman court.

As, however, the matter of the concord has not yet reached its desired end, and the term is about to expire, the pope, having himself prorogued the articles with the conditions contained therein to the feast of St. Andrew next, now gives power to the nuncios to prorogue them with the same conditions, provided that the king do the same, until Easter.
