Notes

  • -  It had been reported to the King that when the archbishop went through the city or to nearby places he desired a large number of people to accompany him. And it had happened that on solemn feast days there would be no one in the choir of the cathedral except two chaplains, and he had scolded one canon who had returned to the choir. Further, those who accompanied him received their fees as though they had been in the choir, while he took off for those who missed choir to prepare sermons, even with the chapter's permission. The King reminds him that he had been ordered not to take a large cortege with him when he left the city because of the harm to the Indians; he charges him to avoid a large accompaniment both inside and outside of the city, not to interfere with those who should serve in choir, and to favor and encourage those who are preparing sermons.
