To the bishops of Aquila and Dunkeld and the abbot of Lindores (de Londoris) in the diocese of St. Andrews. Mandate as below. Lately, upon the expected voidance of the parish church of Kylmany in the diocese of St. Andrews by the promotion, made by the present pope, and the then future consecration, of James, [now] bishop of Dunkeld, to that church, the pope granted it in commendam to John, bishop of Brechin, to be held by him for life with the church of Brechin; after which, as some allege, the pope granted to the said bishop John a faculty to reserve the said church to his gift and to make collation and provision thereof, or to exchange it for another benefice, or otherwise freely dispose of it. Seeing that, as the pope has learned from the recent petition of king James, the said king believes that such commenda and faculty were the result of sinister information received from the said bishop John, and were otherwise fraudulently obtained, and seeing that, unless a remedy be applied, the said commenda and faculty will be the cause of scandals in Scotland, the pope hereby orders the above to annul the said commenda, and the said faculty, if any, and their consequences, and to collate and assign the said church, value not exceeding 45l. sterling, to Thomas de Spens, a canon of Glasgow, M.A.; whether it became void by the consecration of the above bishop James without the Roman court, or by the resignation of Thomas de Mirton, clerk, or be void in any other way; notwithstanding that the said Thomas de Spens holds a canonry and prebend of Glasgow and the parish church of Kyrckmichel in the diocese of Glasgow, value altogether not exceeding 40l. sterling. The pope hereby dispenses him to hold the said two parish churches together for a year, notwithstanding his late ordinance [see above, p. 5], etc. Within the said year he is to resign one of them for a benefice compatible with the other, or is thereafter to resign Kyrckmichel.
