To the mayor and sheriffs of London. Order, upon the petition of the master of the hospital of St. Giles without London, which is of the king's patronage founded by the alms of his forefathers kings of England it is said, to be aiding the said master as often as need be, and whenever by him required, by distraints and other lawful means, where he himself is not sufficient for levying all the rents which he may reasonably shew to be due to the said hospital, so that he may do alms and other works of piety there as he is bound to do; as his petition shews that rents are due to the said hospital in the city of London, and that he is not sufficient for levying the same nor, unless they be paid, for doing the alms and works of piety which he is bound to do for the king's health and for the souls of his forefathers.
