Document 5/2/0 (CDS, iii, no. 194)

The king to W., bishop of Worcester, the chancellor. Hearing that the bishop of Glasgow, who has sown such dissensions and discords in Scotland, is busy suing his deliverance at the Court of Rome, and leave to return to his own country, which would be most prejudicial to the king’s affairs there, and an encouragement to his enemies, he commands the chancellor, in concert with the earl of Lincoln, the lieutenant and Guardian, and treasurer of Scotland, to issue letters under the Great Seal to the Pope and the cardinals named in the enclosed list, urgently opposing the said bishop’s restoration either to his office or to his country, and pointing out his evil conditions, ‘mavoys port’, and his oaths repeatedly broken, and anything else to induce the Pope to refuse him leave even to return to Scotland.
