Agreement, in 42 numbered paragraphs, pertaining to the rents and privileges of the Canons Regular of Urgel, in the Catalonian province of Lerida.

- Ms. codex.
- Title supplied by cataloger (Zacour-Hirsch).
- Incipit: Notum sit cunctis quod ...
- Caption in later hand (f. 1r): Bescaran.
- According to the Latin prologue (f. 1r), the document was drawn up and written by the notary and rector Petrus Bertrandi of Bescaran (spelled "Besqueran" in the prologue). In the prologue, Petrus refers to himself in the first person. The prologue gives the names of the two representatives of Urgel as Jacobus Fabre and Petrus de Artedo (f. 1r).
- Notarial colophon (f. 11v): Bernardus consulis vocatur, qui scripsit a domino benedicatur. Zacour-Hirsch and Bernard Rosenthal's description regard this Bernardus as the same person as the Petrus Bertrandi mentioned in the prologue. This is likely but is by no means certain.
