she says, (so that the word nothing refers to the dower and not to the specific vill  in which the dower claimed lies,)1 and as to which she complains that the aforesaid  [A.] deforces her. And unless he does so, and [if] the aforesaid B. makes you secure  with respect to the prosecution of her claim etc., then summon the aforesaid A.  (or the aforesaid persons, if there are several) by good summoners to be before our  justices at Westminster on such a day (or at the first session when they come into  those parts) to show why they have not done so. And have there the summoners  and this writ. Witness etc.' And note that this writ is as proper for the recovery of a  specified dower as for one that is unspecified, though it does not state that she was  specifically endowed, for that will be supplied in the narratio. If he neither appears  nor essoins himself on the day of the summons, let the land be taken into the hand of  the lord king by default, as on defaults in a writ of right. If he essoins himself on the  first day, he will be given another day by his essoiner,2 on which, if he defaults, let it  be as above. 3<The woman will recover by default whether he defaults before he has  appeared or after, by the great cape or the little.> <A woman will recover dower for  lack of a warrantor, where the tenant prays aid of the court [for summoning a  warrantor] and does not pursue it against his warrantor: as before Martin of Pateshull  in the tenth year of king Henry, [the case] of Alexander de Walpole and Grace, his  wife, against John son of Robert.>4

 When the parties appear in court, let the woman (in person or by her attorney)  put forward her intentio in this way, when she claims an unspecified dower. B. who  was the wife of C. shows you that A. wrongfully deforces her of the third part of so  much land with the appurtenances in such a vill, wrongfully for this reason, because  the aforesaid C. her late husband endowed her therewith at the church door when he  married her, [as one]5 who could so endow her, and if he is willing to acknowledge  this that will be satisfactory, and if not she has sufficient proof,6 or let her produce a  sufficient suit. The claim for a specified dower is put in another way, thus: B.  who was the wife of C. of N. claims against A. such a manor (or so much land with the  appurtenances in such a vill) as her dower, of which the aforesaid C. her late husband  specifically endowed her at the church door on the day he married her, as one  who could so endow her. And if etc. (as above). Thus the intentio and the claim is  varied though the writ is not. [[Then let exceptions be raised] against the woman,  that she cannot sue by herself, either because
