English term or phrase: letter patent
....mortgage or otherwise dispose of letters patent any foreign country,...
Think there is something missing, like "in", but the "letters patent" is the trouble here...
Thanks!

Explanation:
Bouvier's Law Dictionary (http://www.constitution.org/bouv/bouvier.htm) ger följande def.: LETTERS PATENT. The name of an instrument granted by the government to convey a right to the patentee; as, a patent for a tract of land; or to secure to him a right which he already possesses, as a patent for a new invention or discovery; Letters patent are a matter of record. They are so called because they are not sealed up, but are granted open. Vide Patent.

Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letters_patent) säger följande: Letters patent are a type of legal document which is an open letter issued by a monarch or government granting a right, monopoly, title, or status to someone or some entity such as a corporation. The opposite of letters patent (from Lat. litterae patentes) is letters close (Lat. litterae clausae) which are personal in nature and sealed so that only the recipient can read the contents of the letter. Letters patent often start with a salutation such as "To all to whom these presents shall come Greeting" or "To all to whom these Presents shall come or whom the same may in any way concern, GREETING:". Letters patent can be used for the granting of coats of arms, for the creation of corporations, or by a monarch to create an office. They are also common in printed diplomas and academic degrees from educational institutions. The term patent now most often refers to such a document that grants exclusive rights in an invention.

In the United States, the forgery of letters patent granted by the President of the United States is a crime subject to fine and/or imprisonment up to ten years (18 U.S.C. § 497).

För att översätta din mening korrekt behövs betydligt mer sammanhang, eftersom Letters Patent uppenbarligen kan åsyfta många olika typer av dokument. Kanske det inte finns någon exakt motsvarighet på svenska till det dokument som åsyftas här, i så fall blir det kanske nödvändigt med en förklaring i en fotnot.
