On their meeting together in the Chapter house of the monks of Westminster, they elected for themselves and the Church of Canterbury, the before-named Baldwin as archbishop ; and then, that they might not appear to have assented to the election of the bishops, sang their own " Te Deutn Laudamus," and led him to the altar, and, receiving him with the kiss of peace, presented him to the king, who again received him with the kiss of peace and love ; as did Bichard, earl of Poitou, his son.

The before-named archbishop of Cologne also, at the entreaty of the king of England, agreed that the daughter of Frederic, emperor of the Bomans, should be given in marriage to Bichard, earl of .Poitou, the king's son : for he knew that this was the especial wish and desire of the emperor. After this, the before-named archbishop, and Philip, earl of Flanders, who had come with him over to England, returned to Flanders, and, having levied a great army, invaded the territories of the earl of Hainault, and ravaged them, in revenge for the injuries which he had inflicted on the earl of Flanders. In the same year, died the empress of the Bomans, the wife of the emperor Frederic. In this year also, died Gilbert de Ver, abbat of Selby, and Gerard,30 surnamed La PuceUe, bishop of Chester.
