The Manors of Guyting and Bradwell pr Magist" Johem Pancium

The Manor of Saddlecombe by Earl Warrene. In a large folio are arranged, in chronological order, a variety of valuable documents of very ancient date—some of them are much injured, others in tolerable preservation.

Commencing with an appeal to Pope Alexander 3rd respecting some differences among the order, and dated 1169, they relate to grants, indulgences, and other privileges conferred on the knights up to 1328. I believe among the number is included the grant of the island of Rhodes.

That of Malta, from Charles 5th, I know to be one of them.
In another folio, headed

Lingua Angliæ. Liber in quo continentur deliberationes venerandæ linguæ Anglicæ ab anno 1524 ad ann 1559.

It appears that chapters were periodically held, and the proceeding thereat entered in this book.

They relate principally to the appointment of officers and allowances of the public accounts of the order.

Names of Knights whose signatures are found therein between the above mentioned

periods, some of them scarcely legible from the badness of the writing.

(Continued from vol. iv. p. 627.)

A Prayer against Envy. Lord, the inventor and maker of all things, and the disposer of thy gifts, which thou bestowest of thy bounteous liberality, giving to each more than he deserveth, unto each man sufficiently, so that we have no cause of grudge or envy, since thou givest unto all men of thine own, and unto such as deserve it not, and to each man sufficiently toward the heavenly blessedness; grant us that we be not envious, but quietly content with thy judgment, and the disposing of thy gifts and benefits. Grant us to be thankful for that we receive, and not to murmur secretly with ourselves against thy judgment and blessed will, in bestowing thy free benefits ; but rather that we love and praise thy bounteous liberality, as well in others as in ourselves, and always magnify thee, O Lord, the well of all gifts and goodness.

A Prayer against Anger. O Lord Jesu Christ, which saidest, Whosoever is angry with his brother shall be guilty to judgment; which also dost reserve, from time to time, all vengeance and displeasure to thy secret and just judgment; grant us of thy great mercy, that by no manner of occasion we fall not into disordering of ourselves, by anger and desire of revenging, but that we may alway remember, not only thy godly com
