A.D. 1194. LETTER. OF RICHARD, KING OF ENGLAND. 343 But Ralph, the archdeacon of the "West Biding, died whUe on his return from Rome; on which, Geoffrey, archbishop of York, gave his archdeaconry, first, to his own brother, Peter, and afterwards to Peter de Nunant. The said archbishop then making appeal against his canons and their acquisitions, crossed over from England to Normandy, to Richard, king of England, his brother, and obtained from him a letter to the foUowing effect :— The Letter of Richard, king of England, on the reconciliation of the archbishop of York, " Richard, by the grace of God, king of England, duke of Normandy and Aquitaine, and earl of Anjou, to his dearly beloved and faithful subjects, WiUiam of the Church of Saint Mary, and Hugh Bardolph, greeting.

Also, you are not to allow
