A.D. 1179. C0B0NATI0N OF KING ΡΗΠΙΡ. 517 king of England, the father, came to meet him on the sea-shore, and received him -with great honor and congratulations, as his most dearly-beloved liege lord and friend, and, with due respect, supplied all necessaries for him and his people. On the following day, that is to say, on the vigil of Saint Bartholomew the Apostle, he escorted him to the tomb of Saint Thomas the Martyr, at Canterbury.
