But as the king's presentation of Philip de Weston, canon of York, to the said deanery was made contrary to and after the papal reservation and collation of the same, the pope could not accede to the king's request; nevertheless, on seeing the pacts made between the said bishop and Philip, he will do that with which the latter ought to be content.
