Α.». Ì201. LETTER OF POPE INNOCENT. tect churches and ecclesiastical persons in their rights, and powerfully and lawfully to bridle the attempts of evil doers, when striving to molest them. Wherefore, inasmuch as our beloved son, Master Honorius, archdeacon of Richmond, is a man so learned and so virtuous, that, not only from his learning and virtue, honor is reflected upon the church of York, but his duteous services may possibly prove advantageous to yourself, we do ask, advise, and exhort your serene highness in the Lord (and the more urgently, inasmuch as we are aware that he has attended not less diligently than faithfully to the business committed to his charge by your serene highness at our court,) to maintain and defend him in his rights, and not to permit him or his clerks, in contravention of the privileges of the archdeaconry of Richmond, to be aggrieved by molestation on part of any person whatsoever.

However, shortly after, the said Roger, not taking into consideration the compromise made, and the oath which he had taken thereon, obtained letters from ourselves against the said archdeacon, addressed to you, who, as he asserted, attempted in many ways, contrary to justice, to injure him.
