      Curt,

      Thanks,

The priest uses the phrase or a similar one down later on the page. If you post the citation of the record this is from, I can see better examples and manipulate it and probably figure out the second word, and date in February. The Latin word for dispensation is "dispensatio", from whence we get the English word. The last word in this entry is the past participle "dispensati" meaning dispensed. The handwriting is not particularly good.
