A.D. 119C. BEPBIVATION OF THE AliCHBISHOP OF ΧΟΕΚ. 383 has been taken away by him, as also other matters, we have thought proper to remain in force, as fully ratified by us ; and we do command you, relying upon our authorization, to repair to the church of York, according to the tenor of our first letters, both for the purpose of enquiry into these evil reports, and for making restitution to the canons of the things of which they have been deprived, and to proceed therein, appeal or absence of the aforesaid archbishop, or any letters hitherto obtained to the prejudice of our first letters, notwithstanding.
