Letter to Master James, papal legate, in answer to his. Wishes that he had chosen, as the pope ordered him, such companions as would not have, either by deed or word, injured his good fame, but as he has not, it is his own doing that many speak ill of him.

Mandate to the cardinal archbishop of Canterbury and his fellow judges, on the showing of John Sarraceni, clerk, that when Jolanus, clerk of the diocese of Durham, brought an action against him before them touching the church of St. Nicholas, Durham, exception was taken on the part of the said John that he ought not to be cited before them by authority of papal letters, inasmuch as [the court] was more than two days journey distant from the said church, but that they nevertheless went on with the cause, on the ground that the said John having benefices in the diocesses of Rochester and Ely, must be considered to have a domicile there. On this he appealed to the pope, but they, ignoring his appeal, put the other party in possession of the church; whereupon John, following up the appeal, obtained papal letters committing the cause to the archbishop of York and his colleagues; but in spite of this the archbishop of Canterbury, going on with the cause, inhibited the said judges from proceeding in the business committed to them. Wherefore the pope has ordered the cardinal archbishop of Canterbury and his fellow judges to withdraw from the cause, as not they, but the said judges have to take cognisance of it.

The legate demanded of the pope what was to be done, on which the pope answered that the Scottish bishop were to be called together, and that, on ascertaining the facts, the legate was to do what was right. But since Alan's proctor made further instance that the pope would not deny that justice which is due to all, the case is now committed to the above, with orders to examine all persons concerned, and to do what is according to the law of God and the good of souls.
