To the bishop of Salisbury, the abbot of St. Mary's, Glastonbury, in the diocese of Bath and Wells and John Cranborne, a canon of Salisbury. Mandate, as below.

Seeing that, as the said petition added, the merits of the case could be better made clear in England (in partibus) than in the Roman court, the pope, at the petition of Henry and Margaret, king and queen of England, of which latter Nicholas is secretary, orders the above to summon the said Thomas and others concerned, resume the cause of the said appeal, hear it further, as well as the principal cause etc., and decide it, etc. Humilibus supplicum votis.

Seeing that some of the conspirators, slayers etc. are penitent and desire pardon and mercy from the apostolic see, the pope orders the above cardinal, who is also archbishop of Canterbury, either in person or by deputy to absolve in foro conscientie, with consent of the said king, all the said conspirators, slayers etc. (except those who did evil to archbishops or bishops), and their accomplices, if penitent, from their said evil-doing and from all their other sins, crimes, etc., even in cases reserved to the apostolic see, and from sentences etc., enjoining penance; to do likewise (except that here the clause de consensu prefati regis is omitted) in regard to all who conspired etc. and perpetrated evil against archbishops and bishops, and their accomplices; and to dispense priests and clerks who took part in the aforesaid, provided that they did not lay violent hands on persons thus slain, on account of irregularity contracted by celebrating mass etc., and rehabilitate them; with faculty hereby for the said cardinal and his deputy to execute these presents.

The pope was gratified to hear recently that, the archdeaconry of Wilts (Wilteschirie) in Salisbury being at present void by the pope's promotion of John, [now] bishop of Lincoln to that see and his consecration, which has taken place by order of the pope without the Roman court, the above bishop Richard desired to grant it in commendam for life by his ordinary authority to Marinus de Ursinis, archbishop of Taranto, papal referendary, provided that, notwithstanding papal reservations, the bishop's right and power in regard to it should not be prejudiced upon its becoming void by the death of the said archbishop or in any other way. The pope therefore, in order that the right of the bishop and his successors to collate by their ordinary authority may not be impeded, grants hereby that on the approach of the said voidance he or his successor may, notwithstanding any papal reservations, special or general, freely make collation and provision as if the archdeaconry had not been collated or otherwise granted in commendam to the said archbishop, and as if no papal reservations had emanated interfering with such collation; the pope decreeing that the said archdeaconry is not reserved on account of such collation or commenda.
