throughout every county, within three months after summons, to return to their benefices, as they wish to retain those benefices and to return to England. And, if they shall not return within the period before-mentioned, then let their chattels and possessions be seized into the king's hand. Also, let the bishops of London and Norwich be summoned to appear before the king's justiciaries, to make redress for having, contrary to the statutes of the realm, laid an interdict on the lands of earl Hugh, and passed sentence46 against him. Also, let Saint Peter's pence be collected and kept." Tke Address of the blessed Thomas, archbishop of Canterbury, to Henry, king of England, at his Council held at Chinon.*1 " With great longing have I longed to see your face, and to converse with you ; much, indeed, on my own account, but more especially on yours. On my own account, that, on seeing your face, you might recall to mind the services which, in my obedience to you, I have devotedly rendered to you to the best of my conscience; as God may help me at the last judgment, when all shall stand before His tribunal to receive according to what they have done in the body, whether good or whether evil : also, that I might move you to take compassion upon me, who am obliged to live on charity among the people of a foreign land ; although, by the grace of God, I still have sufficient provision and in abundance. It is also my great consolation that the Apostle says, ' All that will live godly in Christ shall suffer persecution,'49 and the words of the Prophet are, Ί have not seen the righteous man forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.'49 Again, for your own sake, for these three reasons ; because you are my lord, because you are my king, and because you are my son in the Spirit. Because you are my lord, I owe and offer to you my counsel, as is due from every bishop to his lord, in accordance with the honor of God and of the Holy Church; because you are my king, I am bound to respect and to admonish you ; because you are my son, I am bound by the duties of my office to chastise and to correct you. For a father corrects his son, sometimes in kind words and sometimes in 46 Of excommunication. *7 A portion of this so-called speech is introduced by Roger of Wen-dovcr, in his narrative, as a letter from the archbishop to king Henry. 49 2 Tim. iii. 12. 19 Psalm xxxvii. 25. 270 ANNALS OF EOGER DE HOVEDEN.
