To king Edward. The pope has received his letters by his envoys Hugh de Neville and William de Cusantia, knights, and has listened to the representations of those envoys touching the prolongation of the treaty of peace for a year, and the putting a stop to breaches of the truce. But as king Philip has refused to do this, after king Edward received the pope's letters, and has caused certain knights and squires to be put to a horrible death, king Edward's councillors hesitate to send envoys to the pope through France, unless king Philip puts a stop to such acts and gives sufficient security for the safety of the envoys. The pope is much grieved at this, and thinks that his and king Philip's letters of safe-conduct are sufficient for the security of the envoys. King Philip has consented to do what the pope desires touching the prolongation, and putting a stop to breaches of the truce, and says that the knights and squires put to death had committed rapine and murder in his realm, and that king Edward's men had also broken the truce. The pope has written to king Philip touching the matter, and hopes that the bishop elect of Norwich, who is coming to the pope, will bring letters from king Edward, whom he prays to send envoys without delay, furnished with powers to make a reasonable treaty.

(f. 262.)
To the same. Sending a second copy of his reply to king Edward, with a report of what the bishop elect of Norwich has said, and praying him to deliberate and make order touching the same, and to inform the pope speedily of his determination.
3 Non. May.
Avignon.
(f. 262d.)
To the same. The pope has received two letters from him: (1) touching the breaches of the truce; (2) touching the enquiry and order to be made by representatives of either party, adding that king Philip would conform himself to the pope's counsel. As to the first the pope has given a verbal reply to the king's envoys, to which they answered that it seemed impossible to them that the matter could be settled by any but the pope, who is willing to act, not on his own authority, but on power given to him by the parties, as was said in effect in the pope's former letters to king Philip, which the reader, perhaps, did not fully explain to him. The pope therefore prays the king to signify his intention speedily, so that a final reply may be given to the envoys, to whom the contents of the said second letter was not communicated.
