A.D. 1190. JOr/EN'AL OF KTJfQ B2CHABD. 143 and his successors, for ever, the manor of Sedbergh, together with the Wapentake and knights' fees which we formerly gave him, and by our charter confirmed, by way of a pure and perpetual alms, for six hundred marks, which he paid us. Wherefore we do will and command that he shall freely, quietly, and honorably enter upon and enjoy the said manor, together with ; the said Wapentake and knights' fees, and all other its appurtenances, as a pure and perpetual alms, in such manner as is set forth in our charters, which the said bishop now holds. We do also will and grant, so far as relates to ourselves, that, if any person shall use against him force or molestation in respect hereof, contrary to the tenor of our'charters and confirmations, he shall incur the anger and curse of God and ourselves. Witness myself, at Marseilles." When the king of England had waited eight days at Marseilles, in hope and expectation from day to day of the arrival of his fleet, finding himself deceived in his wishes, he hired ten large busses and twenty well-armed galleys, and embarked on board them with his household in sorrow and dejection, on account of the delay of his fleet. Accordingly, on the seventh day of August the king of England set sail from Marseilles, in the galley Pombone, and passed by the island of Saint Stephen and Aquila and Mont Noir, the island of Saint Honoratus, the city of Nice, and the city of Yintimigha. It deserves to be known that between the city of Nice and that of Yintirciglia is the division of the territories of the king of Arragon and of Italy. After this, the king of England passed Santa Maria de Funz, and Noli. On the thirteenth day of August the king of England passed a castle which is called Swene,65 and on the same day arrived at Geneva, where he had an interview with the king of Prance, who was lying ill at a house near the church of Saint Laurence. On the fourteenth day of August the king of England arrived at Portofino, it being the vigil of the Assumption of Saint Mary, and there he stayed five days. While he was there the king of Prance sent to ask him for the loan of five galleys, on which the king of England offered him three, which the king of France refused. On the nineteenth day of August he left Portofino, and came to Porto Venere, and on the day after arrived at the port of Pisa. Here he was met by Walter, archbishop of Rouen, John, the bishop of Evreux, then ljing ill in the city of Pisa. M Probably the present Savona. ι if.
