Λ form of agreement for the preservation of peace between the two countries was, at the least of St. Hilary, made in the. presence of the bishops and nobles of both kingdoms, ami having been confirmed by oath between the two sovereigns, it was committed to writing as follows, " I, Philip, king of the French, will keep good faith with Richard king of the English, as my friend and ally for life, for limb, and worldly honour ; and I, Richard, king of the English, promise to keep the same good faith with the king of the French as my lord and friend, for life, and for limb. We also agree to lend aid each of us, if necessary, in defending the territories of the other as zealously as if they were bis own possessions."

The archbishops and bishops of both kingdoms swore to promulgate the sentence of excommunication against those who should break through this compact. It was also determined that if either king should die on the expedition, the survivor should take charge of the treasure and forces of the deceased, to fulfil the service which they owed to God. As they were not able to settle this treaty definitively they delayed the business till tin- feast of St. John's nativity, in order that the sovereigns and all the crusaders might assemble without fail at Yizelai, to enter upon their pilgrimage to the Holy Land. "An d if any shall attempt to con travene," such were the. words of the treaty, "this our agreement, their lands shall be laid under the interdict of the church, and their persons be excommunicated. Having thus arranged matters they broke up the conference.* How William bishop of Kltj was appointed chancellor. Richard king of England, sent ambassadors, in conjunction with others sent by William bishop of Ely, to pope Clement, and obtained from that pontili' a decree as follows. " We, Clement the pope, greeting,—The laudable request of our well * "About the same time Ilaldwin archbishop of Canterbury held a council at Westminster, at which he baile farewell to his brethren and sit out for the Holy Land, in magnificent array."—Ai.
