with respect to such a plea by such a one. If the tenant is present he will have the  same day. If he essoins himself, let the enrolment be made thus: Such a one against  the same person with respect to the same by such a one. If he defaults, let the  demandant sue the default. If the tenant essoins himself and the warrantor appears,  let him have the same day. If he defaults, let the tenant or his essoiner await the  fourth day, and if he then does not come, proceed to default. And what is said of one  tenant and one warrantor, essoined or not essoined, may be said of several tenants  and attorneys. And finally note that the tenant will not essoin himself against the  warrantor or the warrantor against the tenant, but each of them will essoin himself  against the principal demandant. And whether it is the demandant or the warrantor  who essoins himself, he who did not essoin himself is always exacted.
How essoins of difficulty in coming are judged.
 In order that essoins of difficulty in coming may be properly judged, the original  writs must first be inspected, especially if the plea is new, or the judicial writs if it  is [not] new, in order to ascertain whether the essoin lies or not. If the plea is new  and the writ has come, let mention then be made in the margin that it is a new  plea. If the writ does not come, let mention be made in the margin that it did not,  but let the essoin be allowed if the demandant comes, and let him be told to have  his writ at another day, by another writ addressed to the sheriff.
If the original writ does not come let another writ issue to the sheriff that he cause it to come.

Witness etc. If the plea is old, which it will be after the first essoin, then, in the  same way, let mention be made in the margin that it is old. And so if
