(f. 85.)
To the same. Faculty to exercise ecclesiastical censure and if necessary to cite before the pope all persons clerical and lay who, he fears, may injure or hinder him or his sub-collectors and invade the rights of the papal camera, and to enforce thereby payment and due satisfaction to the same. [See ibid.]

To the same. Mandate to execute the recent reservation made by the present pope of —(i) the moveables and other personal property of the [late bishops] of Sodor and Orkney and other archbishops, bishops, and abbots of the realm of Scotland at the time of their death, having regard to the modification recited below (cum infrascripta moderatione); (ii) of the rents and rights pertaining to the archiepiscopal, episcopal, and abbatial mense during voidance; (iii) of the fruits and rents during voidance of all benefices whatsoever held by such archbishops, bishops, and abbots at the time of their death.
