At the said petition, which added that it is asserted that neither of the parties has a right in or to the said canonry and prebend, the pope orders the said auditor, if he find this to be the case, to collate and assign them, value not exceeding 20l. sterling, to the said Thomas, whether void as above or in any other way; notwithstanding that he holds the canonry and prebend of Kinkel in Aberdeen, and is litigating in the papal palace about the deanery of Glasgow, a major dignity with cure, and about the parish church of Kilmany in the diocese of St. Andrews, value not exceeding 100l., 100l. and 60l. respectively.

Seeing that the said John Bonyng, being in possession, has died in the Roman court, and seeing that, as the said petition added, the said John Feldew (who is a priest, and for the past year and more has been in the said court) doubts the validity of the said collation and provision, the pope orders the above three to collate and assign to him the said vicarage, value not exceeding 30l. sterling, whether void by the death of the said Patrick or of the said John Bonyng, or void in any other way; notwithstanding that he holds the hospital without cure of St. Nicholas near the city of St. Andrews, wont to be assigned as a perpetual benefice to secular clerks, and the said vicarage of Markynch, value not exceeding 8l. and 17l. sterling respectively, and that the pope lately made provision to him of a canonry of Glasgow, with reservation of a prebend and a dignity etc. thereof and also of a benefice with or without cure in the common or several gift of the bishop and the prior and chapter etc. of St. Andrews, even if it were a canonry and prebend, dignity etc. in a cathedral of a collegiate church, and even if such dignities etc. were elective and had cure, and dispensed him (i) to hold together for five years such dignity etc. or such benefice with cure and the said vicarage of Markynch, or, in the event of his resigning the said vicarage, simply or for a compatible benefice, to hold together for three years a dignity etc. or such and any other benefice with cure or otherwise incompatible, even if such other benefice were an elective dignity (even if major or principal accordingly) etc. in a cathedral or a collegiate church or were a parish church or a perpetual vicarage; (ii) subsequently [below, f. 204], to hold for life any two mutually incompatible benefices, even if they were dignities etc. in cathedral or collegiate churches, and one of the benefices were a parish church or a perpetual vicarage, or one of such dignities were major in a cathedral or principal in a collegiate church, and even if such dignities etc. were elective and had cure, and to resign the same, simply or for exchange, as often as he pleased, and hold instead two similar or dissimilar mutually incompatible benefices. Upon obtaining under these presents the said vicarage of Lynlitheu he is, as he has offered, to resign that of Markinch and the said hospital. Litterarum sciencia, vite etc. (Ja. and Ja.
