    The statutes printed here were issued on 17 April 1722 by John Verdon bishop of Ferns from 1709 to 1728. The text depends on two manuscript copies in the Franciscan Library, Killiney (MS C 105), which originally belonged to the Franciscan house in Wexford. One, which I have designated A, is a twelve-page document (the last two pages being blank) approximately 12" by 7f'. The other, B, is made up as a small booklet of thirty-eight pages, c. 6" by 4", the last three pages of which are blank. The manuscripts are obviously several removes from the original. P note at the end of A makes it clear that it was written after 1745, the year Nicholas Sweetman became bishop. Both give a very much corrupted text. The scribe of B added at the end a note in English.
