if they deem it expedient [and] for good reason, [as] where a serious crime is being  concealed and the jurors intend to hide the truth through love, hatred or fear, may  separate the jurors one from the other and examine each of them individually in  order to establish the truth adequately.
Of the peace and woundings committed in breach of the peace.
 We have spoken above of appeals of homicide committed wickedly and in breach  of the peace.1 Now we must speak of the peace and woundings committed in breach  of the peace. The appeal is made in these words:
The words of the appeal.
 A. appeals B. for that on such a day, as he was in the king's peace in such a place  (or as he went in the king's peace along the king's highway between such a vill and  such on such a day) before (or after) such a feast, in such a year and at such an  hour, the said B. came with his force and attacked him in breach of the king's  peace, feloniously and in a premeditated assault, and dealt him such a wound in  such a part [of his body] with such a kind of weapon. And that he did this wickedly  and feloniously he offers to prove against him by his body or as the court may  award.
B. comes and makes denial.
 And B. comes and denies breach of the king's peace and the felony and wounding  and whatever contravenes the king's peace and everything, word for word, whatsoever  is alleged against him and as it is alleged against him, by his body as the  king's court may award. And A., asked if he raised the hue and cry and when it  was that he came to the county court with his appeal, says that he raised it as soon  as the deed was done, and that afterwards and with that hue he went immediately  to the nearest townships and to the king's serjeants and coroners, and that he  made his appeal at the next county court.2 And the sheriff and coroners testify  that the suit was adequately and properly made and that the wound shown at the  county court was a fresh and open wound. And because suit was properly made,  and B. shows no reason why he ought to have the country, it is awarded that the  duel proceed between them.
The duel: let B. give gage for defending and A. for deraigning
 Let B. give a gage for defending and A. for deraigning and let both find pledges. A  day will be given them on which let both come armed,
