To A. archbishop of York. Strict order, as he will answer for the peril to be feared for the king and realm, to attempt nought, and so far as in him lies to suffer nought to be attempted, procured or done on any pretence at the request or command of any man, which may tend to impair the effect of the late king's writ forbidding him to attempt aught tending to impair the privileges or liberties granted to St. Cuthbert and the church of Durham, to the disturbance of the people, or the comfort and encouragement of the king's enemies of Scotland, or any article thereof, and order to revoke anything so attempted, procured or done, knowing that if he shall do aught to the contrary the king will deal with him as the cause of such disturbance and encouragement, a despiser of his commands and breaker of his peace; as that writ issued upon information received that the archbishop purposed to visit the person of Thomas bishop of Durham the clergy and people of his diocese, and to do other unheard of things which used not to be done time out of mind; and the king is aware that since he took upon him the governance of the realm those enemies have made inroads, committed manslaughters and robberies, and have spied out and burned boroughs and towns within his realm and dominions. By C.
