(f. 9.)
To Thomas de Bellocampo, earl of Warwick. The pope has received his envoys and letters, and commends his discretion and devotion in taking the cross, whether he goes to the Holy Land or against the pagans in Prussia.
5 Kal. Jan.
Avignon.
(f. 21.)
To Edward, prince of Aquitaine and Wales. Praying him to remit any penalty incurred by Peter de Panato, lord of Coupiac, knight, of the diocese of Rodez, a simple, unastute nobleman, who, trusting in his own innocence, the prince's justice, and the pope's recommendation, on being charged with certain excesses, did not send an advocate to the prince's court, but an illiterate squire, who got his petition drawn up by a clerk, and not discerning how it was framed, presented it just as it was. The said knight denies the crimes narrated in the petition, which the prince has sent for the pope's information; all that he did was to defend his patrimony against robbers, who, under the name of companies (societatum), despoiled and occupied it, burning churches and houses, seizing, torturing, and slaving men and women, and committing numberless crimes, in pursuing whom the knight feared no punishment from the prince, but hoped to win the pope's praise and the indulgence granted to those who fight against such persons, who are worse than pagans.
