10 Kal. April.
(f. 13.)
To the queen of England. (See Vol. 30, f. 11.)
[Martene, Thes. Novus Anecd. II. 115.]
13 Kal. Oct.
(f. 16d.)
To Ottobon, cardinal of St. Adrian's, papal legate. The pope has heard both his good and bad news of England, the realm being freed by the death of wicked men, who, however, have died caring neither for God, nor for themselves. The pope has listened to the petition of Edward, and orders the legate, if he can safely enter the realm, to do what he can for the king and his children, and if he meets with resistance to preach a crusade and offer indulgences, which he is also to do in outlying provinces and in Almain, if he cannot enter the realm, and he is to recur for help and counsel to the king of France. He may absolve the bishops of London, Worcester, and Lincoln, but not grant them any favour, and if, as is notorious, they joined Simon, late earl of Leicester, or his accomplices, or have not observed the papal interdict, they are to be suspended and reserved to be punished by the pope; finally the legate is to take steps for the recognition of the dominion of the Roman church and the restoration of prelates, clerks, and others, who have been despoiled. The pope expects anxiously the soldiers and the money.
