(f. 2.)
Whereas the Augustinian monastery of Inchaffray, in the diocese of Dunblane, was void by the death of John de Kelly, and the prior and canons elected William de Culros, vicar of Dunyn, to be abbot, which election was confirmed by Andrew, bishop of Dunblane; the pope is prayed to confirm the same, and also the blessing of the said abbot, and all subsequent acts.
Let a commission be issued to the bishop of Glasgow, to confirm the election, if it be canonical, or to make fresh provision if the said abbot elect be a fit person.
Whereas the church of Strugeht, in the diocese of Dunblane, on its voidance by the death of the rector, was given by Walter, then bishop, in whose gift it was, to the abbot and convent of Inchaffray, the pope is prayed to confirm the said gift, or to appropriate the church anew.
Let a commission be issued to the bishop of Glasgow, who shall inform himself, and confirm the same according to justice.
