From the catalogue, An Exhibition of Medieval Brass Rubbings by Kathleen H. Cairns. "Robert Hacombleyn, 1528, provost. In almuce. The shield bears the five wounds of Christ. An almuce or amice was formerly a square of white linen worn by clergy on the head and shoulders. Later it was known as Grey Amice. A hooded cape of grey fur or miniver. SCROLL: Christ, Thy wounds are my sweet healing. BORDER INSCRIPTION: O Lord, judge me not according to my act. I have done nothing worthy in Thy sight. Therefore I invoke Thy Majesty that so Thou, God, may wipe out my sin. Jesus have mercy."
