(f. 30d.)
King Richard to Boniface IX. Whereas the monastery of St. Albans, immediately subject to the apostolic see, founded by the king's progenitors in honour of the protomartyr of England, has its means grievously diminished by the heavy expenses of the visits of the abbots elect to the apostolic see to obtain confirmation and benediction; whereas it is situate in the uttermost parts of the earth, and is in comparison with other monasteries of the realm over selenderly endowed, and that too in a barren place; whereas therein, beyond the other monasteries of the realm, the highest devotion, regular discipline, and daily hospitality flourishes; whereas, if each abbot elect were bound to make such visit, the number of monks would be minished, their devotion chilled, and hospitality be not observed; and whereas the prince of Wales, whose carnal son we are known to be, and whose ways (mores) we desire to follow, bore a special affection to the said monastery: we petition your Holiness—seeing that full exemption has been granted by divers popes to the abbot and convent and their successors, and that the abbot for the time being has had papal indult to receive benediction from any catholic bishop, in sign of which exemption and liberty the abbot and convent have paid to the apostolic see an ounce of gold yearly, as in the letters of pope. Honorius [III.—Reg. x. f. 60d.] is contained—to confirm the said letters, and further to grant that the abbots elect may eo ipso exercise at once their office without any confirmation, and may receive benediction from any catholic bishop, as if their election had been legitimately confirmed by the apostolic see. We hope for as much grace in our present petition as Innocent III. and Urban V. granted mero motu in a similar petition on behalf of the monastery of Evesham, as may plainly be seen in the register [Reg. cclii. f. 132] of the said Urban. Written under our signet at our manor of Eltham, the twentysixth day of the months of September. Subscribed: Your devoted son R. King of England and France; and counter-subscribed: Favourabiliter.

8 Boniface IX.

1397.
Kal. March.
St. Peter's, Rome.
(f. 36d.)
To the archbishops of Canterbury and York, and Master James Dardani, clerk of the camera, collector thereto in England. Commending the purpose of John Holand, earl of Huntingdon, the king's brother, to come shortly to Italy and other parts for the extermination of schismatics and rebels and usurpers of cities and lands of the pope and the Roman church, as the pope has learned from the earl's letters and messengers; hoping that by his coming to Italy the state of the universal church will be made prosperous, and peace quickly restored; and (considering that what is for the good of all ought to be favoured and helped by all) imposing a tenth for one year of all ecclesiastical fruits in England and Ireland, those of cardinals, Hospitallers, and Teutonic knights alone excepted, to be paid at certain terms to be fixed by the archbishops and collector (et, te, Jacobe collector: written over an erasure), to be paid to and exacted and received by the archbishops and collector (over erasure as elsewhere) and converted to the earl's expenses in accordance with the disposition to be made by the king. The pope wills the exaction to be made in accordance with the taxation for the tenth made there, or where no such fixed taxation has been made, according to custom; in the money current there, in accordance with the constitution of the Council of Vienne; and chalices, books, etc., not to be taken, in accordance with the constitution of the same council. The archbishops and collector have mandate to exact and collect the same; and the usual faculties are granted them ( (fn. 1) ) to compel payment by ecclesiastical censure and sequestration, invoking, if necessary, the aid of the secular arm, to receive and give acquittance for the tenth, and to assign and convert it in accordance with the king's disposition, as above; and to give the usual absolutions and the usual dispensation on account of irregularity. (De curia.)

(f. 38.)
To the same. Whereas the insolence of the schismatic adherents of Robert, cardinal priest of the Twelve Apostles, of damned memory, and the son of perdition, Peter de Luna, sometime cardinal deacon of St. Mary's in Cosmedin, the late and the present anti-popes, who presumed to call themselves Clement VII. and Benedict XIII.—after and against the processes by Urban VI. against Robert and his followers condemning them as heretics and schismatics, and granting the Holy Land indulgence to those who should take the cross for their extermination (exterminium)—and of other enemies of the pope and the Roman church, has grown strong and daily grows stronger in Italy, and especially in the patrimony of St. Peter; the pope commends the laudable purpose of John Holand, earl of Huntingdon, and grants the usual Holy Land indulgence and remission of sins to penitents who join his crusade to Italy, or contribute to the expenses; with mandate to the archbishops and collector to cause the same to be published in England and Ireland and other parts subject to the king. The pope wills all money thus received to be wholly at the disposition of the king, and to be assigned to whomsoever he shall order. (De curia.)
