the absence of both, if they do not appear or essoin themselves, [how one must proceed  may be drawn from what has been said.] When both appear, and if the woman  has never had seisin of the land claimed, let her put forward her intentio in these  words.
Of formulating and putting forward the woman's claim.
 I claim against such a one so much land with the appurtenances in such a vill as  belonging to the dower which falls to me from the inheritance of B. my late husband,  of which he endowed me at the church door on the day he married me, of which on  that day he was vested and seised so that he could endow me thereof.1 And if he is  willing to acknowledge this etc. (as above); if he is unwilling, I have sufficient proof,  suit and the like. But if she has once been in seisin, then let her put forward her claim  in these words: I claim against such a one so much land with the appurtenances in  such a vill as my dower, and as belonging to the land which I hold in that same vill  (or in another) in the name of dower, of which B. my late husband, [who] held that  whole land in fee and in his demesne, endowed me on the day he married me, so that  after the death of the aforesaid B. my late husband I was in seisin thereof in the name  of dower until such a one disseised me wrongfully and without judgment. And that I  was thus endowed and seised I have sufficient proof, namely, such suit.2
After the claim has been set forth.
 After the woman's intentio has been put forward, the tenant may vouch a warrantor  if he has one, as was said above [in the portion] on vouching a warrantor, or if he does  not, he may except against the woman, for example, that she returned the land to  him voluntarily, or if she was disseised, that she afterwards remitted and quitclaimed  her right, or withdrew from her writ.3 And let him produce suit, if he has one, and if  necessary put himself on the country that4 the truth may be declared by the country.  There will be no duel between them nor grand assise, nor consequently any essoin of  bed sickness.5 When recourse must be had to the country and the plea is in the county  court, we must see, when the tenant has put himself on an inquest and the demandant  likewise, whether the county court has power to proceed to an inquest or jury if not  specially ordered. It may well do so, because, since the writ says that if the warrantor  [of her dower] does not do it, let the sheriff do it, everything is taken to be granted to  him without which the plea cannot be determined.6 And just as we may proceed to the  duel in the county court in the other writ of right, so we may in this
