To the abbots of Wymondham in the diocese of Norwich and Waltlim (recte Walth[a]m) in the diocese of London, and the official of London. Mandate, as below. The recent petition of John Britclim (? recte Britch[a]m), (fn. 5) layman, of the diocese of Norwich, contained that John Baldewin, priest, of the said diocese, falsely alleging that he had defamed him of forgery, (fn. 6) and had therefore incurred sentence of excommunication under a certain constitution of the province of Canterbury [Constitutiones Johannis Peckham, in Wilkins, Concilia, tom.

The pope, therefore, at the said petition, hereby orders the above three to summon the said priest and others concerned, grant the said layman conditional (ad cautelam) absolution from any sentence of excommunication which may have been pronounced against him by the said David after the said appeal, hear both sides and, taking cognizance of the principal matter also, decide what is just, without appeal, causing their decision to be observed by ecclesiastical censure.

The pope, therefore, hereby orders the above three to summon the said John Bolne and others concerned, grant the said Elizabeth conditional (ad cautelam) absolution from any sentence of excommunication which may have been pronounced against her, hear both sides, etc., as in the preceding.
