To the archbishop of Canterbury. Mandate as below. John, bishop of Lichfield, has set forth to the pope that although Robert, bishop of Killaloe (Laonien.) is sound of mind and body, and is a bachelor of theology, and understands sufficiently and can speak the language of those parts as well as English, a certain public instrument has been exhibited in the Roman court in which the said bishop Robert is represented as asserting that on account of his bodily weakness and his ignorance of Scripture and the said languages he has appointed procurators, named in the instrument, for the purpose of resigning. Further, to the said see, as void by the resignation in the Roman court of bishop Robert, made by one of the said procurators, the pope has recently translated Eugenius from Kilmacduagh. At the petition therefore of bishop John, who asserts that bishop Robert is his vicar in pontificals in the city and diocese of Lichfield, and knows nothing about such instrument and the said translation, and had and has no intention to resign, the pope orders the archbishop to inform himself as to the falsity of the said instrument, which the pope sends to him with the letters of translation, and if he find it false, to annul it, punish the forger, and declare that Robert is to remain in his said church. If he find the instrument genuine, he is to declare that the said translation is to take effect, and is to assign to the above Eugenius the pope's said letters. Exposuit nobis.
