A.D. 1193. POPE CLEMENT SENDS THE PALL TO HUBERT. and whom he had enriched and exalted, and advised and entreated them to give the fourth part of their revenues towards the liberation of the said king, as had been already done in other parts of the kingdom. To this they objected, and, getting the other canons to join their party, asserted that, in this case and other similar ones, he was wishful to subvert the liberties of their church ; and accordingly withdrew from his acquaintanceship, and all converse and communication with him.
