of any kind in the form of the appeal, as where the appellor first appeals a man as  principal and then as accessory, or conversely. An appeal also falls if the appellor  has once retracted his appeal and then wishes to appeal again, [I say this of the  appellor who has retracted; the appeal is good as to other appellors appealing him  of the same deed, [that is], when the appellee has withdrawn quit1 not by judgment  but by default,
Where the appellor has retracted his appeal; if he has made default it is otherwise.
 for default does not toll the appeal of others;2 judgment, however, does so forever.3  If the deeds are different, judgment against one appellor on one deed does not toll  the appeal of others on other deeds,4 nor do defaults.]5he will not be admitted.6  And so if though present he does not proceed against the appellee, [but if a demandant7  does not prosecute on his day but defaults, as was said above, the writ falls but  the action8 does not, since it may be revived by another writ, unless judgment  follows.]9 An appeal also falls if the appellor has committed a crime, as where he is a  manifest traitor and convicted thereof by confession or on plainly evident grounds;10  [or] if he is a self-confessed thief, or found seised of the stolen property, or an outlaw  who bears his judgment with him. And so if the accuser and appellor, in a case of  felony and treason committed against the lord king, though apprised of the crime,  did not make the treason known to the king or his ministers without delay, though  he could have done so, since he ought to sue immediately before he turns aside to  others things.11 An appeal also falls if no mention is made of the king's peace, only  of the justice's peace or the sheriff's.12 And so if no mention is made of felony  committed.13 And so if the appellor does not speak of his own sight and hearing,14  as [in the roll] of Hilary term in the seventh year of king Henry in the county of  Norfolk [the case] of Durand the Tailor and Henry de Vere.1516An exception arising  from the person of the appellor is also allowed the appellee, as where the appellor  is a clerk in orders or a member of a religious or monastic order, for such persons  renounce the world and the things of the world, [or] because he is a self-confessed  thief, as to whom we have spoken above, who has no right to speak against a law-abiding  man.17 And so where one appeals concerning goods other than his own,  unless the reason is made clear, as
