To the archbishop and chapter of York. Approval with exemplification, of papal letters, dated Naples, 10 Kal. May, in the first year of pope Alexander, granting to the rector and brethren of the hospital of St. Leonard, York, the church of Neuton-on-Ouse of their patronage, on the next voidance. In regard to this grant there was raised by some in the chapter of York an unfounded suspicion of falsification, so that they were sent to the pope with a prayer that the said rector and brethren might not be allowed to suffer on this account. After examination by Master Rolland, vice-chancellor of the Roman church, the letters are approved by the pope as genuine.
