10 Kal. June.
Viterbo.
(f. 6.)
Mandate to the archbishop of Tuam to pay, within one month, 500 marks, which have been due through two preceding pontificates, to Master Sinicius, clerk of the papal camera, sent on this and other bisiness to England and Ireland. If he does not pay it, Master Sinicius is to excommunicate him.

10 Kal. June.
Viterbo.
(f. 6d.)
Mandate to Master Sinicius, papal nuncio, to warn the prior and chapter of Whitehern to pay to him or his agent 36 marks, collected for the crusade in Scotland by Yvo, of the order of Friars Preachers of Ar, and deposited with them. Pope Alexander ordered the prior of Whitehern to pay over the deposit at the house of the Templars in London; but as it was uncertain whether these papal letters reached their destination, he ordered the deposit to be paid to members of a firm of Florentine merchants, or their agent, bearer of his letters; and when, in the time of pope Urban, no money had been paid, the prior and chapter were ordered to pay it to Master Leonard, precentor of Messina, papal chaplain and nuncio, who was not only refused payment, but also his messenger was beaten by them, and thereupon he excommunicated them. If the prior and chaplain do not now pay the money, the former sentence of excommunication is to be renewed and published, and the prior is to appear personally before the pope and answer for the injury and contempt.

Whatever they receive is to be assigned to Master Sinicius, sent by the pope to those parts.
