confidencius ad dulcedinis vestre presidium in agendis nostris

Cum, itaque, in hiis nostris primordiis fidis egeamus ministris,
expertis eciam et discretis, et presertim in administracione
temporalium, ex quibus dependere cernitis victum nostrum,
de senescallo ydoneo sollicite cogitavimus, et tandem unum

de Lythegreynes, cujus circumspectam industriam diu est
novimus, quem senescallum terrarum nostrarum facere
intendimus, dum tamen celsitudo regia hoc permittat.
Scimus quidem quod idem Johannes domini nostri regis
vacat obsequiis,2 quem nostris profecto nollemus aggregare
lateribus, nee ipse nimirum nobis consentire vellet sine
domini regis et vestra licencia speciali. Rogamus, igitur, pie
pater, quatinus nostri impetrare velitis intuitu benignum
