(f. 152d.)
To king Edward. Touching the matter of complaint about his secretary, Thomas de Brambre, canon of Salisbury, the king asserting that the citation granted to Thomas, bishop of Ely, against some justices and other persons of the realm is in derogation of the laws of England, and that the processes by the said justices against the bishop are duly held. The pope replies as before (2 Kal. June), and adds that the king is not to take it ill if the vicar of Christ defends prelates and their churches when attacked by the justices, not in discharge of their office, but moved by personal hatred. Ignorance is no excuse, and if there be dissimulation the king is implicated in it. The pope beseeches the king (as before) to restrain the licence of his servants, and if the bishop of Ely has transgressed, he is to be made by strict administration of justice to keep the rules of canonical observance. The pope is writing about the same to the cardinal nuncios, to whom the king may give full credence.
Ibid.

Ibid.
