To the treasurer and the barons of the exchequer. Order, if certificates are made and received at the exchequer before the feasts hereinafter specified, not to trouble Henry archbishop of Canterbury and his brethren the bishops of that province by reason of the writs to them addressed, although lately by divers writs the king commanded them to appoint trusty men of the clergy of their dioceses for whom they would answer to collect two tenths, one payable at the Purification next and the other at the same feast a year later, for defence of the realm and church of England, of all benefices in that province, exempt and not exempt, which are assessed and used to pay the tenth, any liberties, immunities or privileges granted them to the contrary notwithstanding, so that answer should be made for the same at the said feasts, and to certify the treasurer and the barons of those collectors' names before Christmas next at latest; as at the prayer of the archbishop and bishops the king's will is that they certify the names of the collectors of the first before Christmas as aforesaid, and of the second separately before the second Purification, those writs notwithstanding.
Memorandum (in margin), to ask for the date in the exchequer.
