To Philip, king of France. There have lately come to the apostolic see a clerk, a Carmelite, and a knight, envoys of king Edward, on the business of the peace, and with them envoys of the Flemings, who have prayed the pope to revoke the processes against the same Flemings, saying that what they ask is of importance for the peace, to which they say that king Edward is more than wont well inclined, and offering, if the pope grants their prayer, to send one of their number to England, and that the earls of Lancaster and Huntingdon will come at once to the pope about the treaty of peace. The pope proposes to release the sentences against the Flemings during the truce, and begs king Philip to write to him touching the matter by the bearer of this letter, who will be with him in five days, and return in another five. If king Edward sends the aforesaid earls, king Philip should send persons of like rank.

To king Edward. The pope has received his envoys, John Carlton, canon of Wells, John de Reppiis, papal penitentiary, and Hugh de Newell, knight, and informs the king that justice forbids him to revoke the processes against the Flemings, but that he is ready to suspend them and the concurrent penalties during the truce between the two kings, holding out a hope to the envoys that if the truce is prolonged, the suspension will likewise continue. This proposal was refused, by the king's envoys, as the knight, who is returned, will inform him. Wherefore he prays the king to dispose himself to peace, and to send the ambassadors, whom the pope has been expecting, giving notice of their coming, so that king Philip may send those whom he proposes to meet them.
5 Non. March.
(No. 1155.)
To Philip, king of France. Ivo, lord of Garencieres, knight, will, on his return, tell him what has been done in the business about which he was sent, and also touching the prolongation of the truce between him and king Edward.
9 Kal. March.
(No. 1161.)
To Lewis, count of Flanders. The envoys of king Edward, and those of the Flemings, came together before the pope, so that he was not able to speak what was in his mind to the Flemish envoys on the count's business. They indeed said nothing against the count, and if they had, the pope would not have listened to them. Philip de Arbosio, dean of Bruges, will have, at the count's request, a prebend of Paris.
10 Kal. March.
(No. 1174.)

To John, archbishop of Canterbury. Recommending to him Antoninus, archbishop of Hierapolis, who is coming to England on the affairs of Christendom.
5 Kal. April.
(No. 1232.)
To king Edward. As the coming of his ambassadors for the reformation of peace, whom the pope has long expected, is delayed, John de Carlton, D.C.L. canon of Wells, whose industry and prudence in the king's affairs the pope commends, is sent to him with a request to send back the said Master John and others with full powers to prolong the truce, and to write to the pope touching the matters of which John brings a verbal message to the king.
(No. 1233.)
To Henry, earl of Lancaster. Touching the same.

(No. 1338.)
To king Edward, requesting him to give no credence to the untrue accusations made against William Beaufiz, a Friar Minor, papal chaplain, who has said nothing to the pope against the king.
15 Kal. May.
(No. 1344.)
To the same. The pope has received his letters by Guy de Briane, knight, his secretary, to which the pope replies that although king Philip urged him to grant him a tenth of benefices in his realm, it was not granted to him for six years, as king Edward has been given to understand, but his petition was suspended until the envoys of both kings met for the treaty of peace, and that then, as a sign of the pope's joy at the result so long awaited, a grant of two years seemed fitting. Wherefore the pope begs king Edward not to be offended if his petition touching the same is not granted, and desires him to believe that, by the pope as mediator, no partiality is shown to king Philip. He has written to king Edward by Master John de Carlton, touching the prolongation of the truce, and prays him to send the said envoy or others with full powers for the same.
15 Kal. May.
