mies of the said bishop to be seized upon by any person. And if any one shall presume to disregard this prohibition hereon, they are, by means of canonical censure, to restrain them in such course, no appeal to the contrary -withstanding. To the end, therefore, that what we have ordered may without any difficulty whatever be complied with, we do advise your royal excellency, and exhort you in the Lord, and, for the remission of your sins, enjoin you, out of your love of justice, and your reverence for Saint Peter and for ourselves, to allow proceedings to be taken in this matter in conformity with the tenor of our mandates, and with your royal protection to defend the before-named dean and seneschal, and Pobert de Fedic, and the rest of the kinsmen and friends of the beforenamed bishop of Dunkeld, as also the bishopric, and the rest of his revenues, and neither in any way to aggrieve them nor Buffer them to be aggrieved by others ; that so this dispute may without any hindrance be brought to a conclusion, and your royal mightiness may for this work of justice gain a neverfailing reward from God, and a good name among men. You are to know also, that we have enjoined the before-named bishops, in virtue of their obedience to us, not to receive anything from the churches or clergy subject to them in respect of the expenses which, in the transaction of the matters before-named, they are liable to incur, but to make it their care to supply the necessary expenses from their own revenues alone. For we are unwilling that by their deeds the churches, or any persons in your kingdom, should incur any detriment whatever. "We also wish it not to escape your royal excellency, that the before-named bishop of Dunkeld has so honorably conducted his cause, and has paid such deference to your kingly dignity, that he has made no proposition whatever, which might by any possibility redound to the derogation of your royal name, or, by reason of which, your serene highness ought to feel angered against him. Wherefore, if anything to the contrary shall be suggested to your highness by his opponents, you must not lend your royal ear to tbe words of such persons. Given at Yerona, on the second day before the calends of August."
