appear before the third day of the plea, the default will be allowed on another day  when the essoiners claim judgment on the default. And so if the tenant essoins himself  of difficulty in coming on the third day. Nor does it lie in a plea of agreement,  nor in a plea of quo jure. Nor in a plea de fine facto. 1If a husband and wife are  vouched to warranty and the principal tenant essoins himself of difficulty in coming  or of bed-sickness before the husband and wife have warranted, let the warrantors  be exacted; if the husband is dead let the wife be summoned anew, that she be  present to warrant by herself. If the wife dies first, or both die, let the heirs then be  summoned.2 It does not lie in a writ of entry ad terminum or cui in vita, nor as to  any entry unless it is distant, that is, where the writ of entry is turned into a writ  of right by the tenant's election, as [in the roll] of Michaelmas term in the seventh  and the beginning of the eighth years of king Henry in the county of Northampton,  [the case] of Henry de Gayton against the prior of St. John of Northampton.3 And  in the same roll, that the essoin of bed-sickness does not lie when the essoin of difficulty  in coming did not precede it, but is turned into an essoin of difficulty in  coming, in the county of Devon, [the case] of Alice Malet.4 And in the same roll in  the county of Buckingham, the case of Hugh de Brok,5 that it does not lie in the  vill of London any more than in the county, because the essoinee may appoint an  attorney by four knights.6 The writ falls and the essoin does not lie where the writ  of right is not shown at the first essoin of bed-sickness, as in the county of Lancaster,  [the case] of Alice of Lancaster and William de Tatham.7 It does not lie because  it is a writ of dower, a writ of right of dower or a writ of dower.8 It does not lie in  a plea where languor has earlier been awarded.9 Nor in a plea for giving escambium  or taking a chirograph. Nor in a plea of quod permittat, but let proceedings be taken  to default. And let the same be done in a plea of services and customs. And that it  does not lie in a writ of entry, [in the roll] of Michaelmas term in the sixth year of  king Henry in the county of Nottingham, [the case] of Emma de Bello Fago,10 for  there it is said that a writ of entry is equivalent to a writ of assise of mortdancestor.>
How essoins of bed-sickness are to be judged.
 Essoins of bed-sickness are judged thus, the original writs of right are first to be  inspected, [to see] if they remain in their original state or begin by the count
