Profession of
obedience of
Henry, bp.
of Whithorn.



^The king's itinerary shews he
left Paris early in August, and that
the place in question is possibly
Samois (Seine et Marne).

2The royal letter was also sent to
the bishop of Durham and to
Master H., archdeacon of Rich-
mond.

^It was on the occasion of this
meeting of the archb. and the bishop
of Whithorn that the former granted
an indulgence of fort^- days, which
was to be valid for seven years, an
unusually long period, to all who
should contribute to the restoration
and rebuilding of the cathedral at
Whithorn which had been destroyed
by fire (no. 11). Henry, bishop of
Whithorn, formerly abbot of Holy-
rood, was consecrated in 1255. For
an account of him see Dowden's
The Bishops of Scotland, p. 357.
On the second day after the feast of
St. Leonard the abbot, 6 idus Nov.
(Nov. 8), 1282, he made his profes-
sion of obedience to archb. William
Wickwane in the presence of
