and delivered up to him. On this, Peter de Capua, cardinal, and legate of the Apostolic See in France, upon his arrival, laid an interdict upon France, for the capture of the said bishop elect of Cambray,,and upon Normandy, for the captivity of Philip, bishop of Beauvais : and, before the said sentence was revoked, Philip, king of France, set the before-named bishop elect at liberty, and John, king of England, gave his Bberty to PhiBp, bishop of Beauvais, after he had paid two thousand marks of sBver for the expenses incurred upon him and through him in the time of Richard, king of England, and since the death of king Richard up to the day of his Bberation. The said bishop of Beauvais also made oath, in presence of the before-named cardinal and other ecclesiastics, that for the future he would never, in aB his life, bear arms against Christians. PhiHp, king of France [at this time], made Arthur, duke of Brittany, a knight, and received his homage for Anjou, Poitou, Maine, Touraine, Brittany, and Normandy.

However, the king of England found no favour with the king of France ; and, on the king of France being asked why he held John, king of England, in such great hatred, who had never done him any injury, he made answer, that he had, without his permission, taken possession of Normandy and other territories ; and thathe ought first to have come to him, and to have asked them of him as of his right, and to have done homage to him for the same. At this interview also, the king of France demanded, on his own behalf, the whole of the Vèxin, that is to say, the whole of the country that lies between the forest of Lyons, the Seine, the river Andely, and the river Ethe. For he asserted that Geoffrey, earl of Anjou, the father of king Henry, son of the empress MatUda, had given the same to Louis the Fat, the king of the Franks, in return for his assistance in gaining Normandy, against Stephen, king of England. He also demanded, on behalf of Arthur, Poitou, Anjou, Maine, and Touraine, and made other requests to which the king of England would on no account accede, nor ought he so to have done ; and so disagreeing, they separated.
