To archbishops etc. and all ecclesiastical persons holding dignity or office whatsoever, notaries public and others to whom etc. Strict order to attempt nought which may tend to the prejudice of the king, or to impair the effect of his presentation of Robert Gilberd his clerk to the church of Mongomery, being void and in his gift, and without difficulty or obstacle to revoke any undue attempt made, otherwise the king will proceed against them so that their punishment shall be a terror to others; as although at his presentation the said clerk was admitted, instituted and inducted, certain men scheming to impugn the king's right are striving in contempt of him to make appeals, citations, instruments, processes and notices thereof to the prejudice of the crown, the rights whereof the king is bound by oath to keep unimpaired.
