or was imprisoned or the like during the course of that slaying.1 Also one under  age as well as one of full age, provided the age of the minor is awaited.2 And when  he has come of age, the exception of suit improperly brought will not lie against  him so as to prevent the appeal from proceeding. And so, apparently, with respect  to others who would have no appeal had the appellee been present and excepted  against the person of the appellor, though it may seem otherwise, because3 a suit  is valid no matter by whom brought, and for an indefinite time, when there is no  one to except against him who sues. A woman has no appeal by which anyone  ought to be put to the duel or the grand assise4 except for the death of her husband,  slain within her arms, or for an injury done to her person.5 And note that no one may  sue against another for felony by attorney,6 provided that he who complains and  ought to sue is able to do so himself; if he is temporarily incapacitated a kinsman or  friend may sue for him, because of his infirmity, but once he has recovered the  arrangement will cease;7 nor, it is clear, ought one to prosecute to outlawry for  another unless he was so connected with the slain man, by kinship or homage, that  if the appellee were present an appeal would lie between them.] [for] if the county  court exacts someone without suit8 [or] 9without an order from the justices,10 it  will be amerced. If those in the county court act with circumspection they ought to  examine the deed for which the man is to be exacted, for though felony may be  alleged in the appeal not every deed amounts to felony, though it sometimes amounts  to an injuria and a trespass.11
Who may and ought to be outlawed.
 We must also see who may and ought to be outlawed at the suit of another and  who ought not. It is clear that any male may be outlawed [provided he is twelve  years of age or more, for all of that age are or ought to be in a tithing or the  equivalent, as in mainpast and the like, as above.]12
A minor cannot be outlawed.
 A minor, however, one who is under twelve years of age, cannot be outlawed or  put outside the law because until he reaches that age he is not under any law, [nor  in a tithing,] any more than a woman, who cannot be outlawed because she is  not under the law (in English, in law) that is, in frankpledge or tithing, as is a  male of twelve years and upwards; thus she cannot be outlawed, but when she has  taken to flight for a felony she may well be waived and regarded as one abandoned,
