to be of another nature and cease to be writs of right, or if at the outset they were  not writs of right and by the count,1 or by specification, have begun to be such, as  said above.2 If there are several tenant parceners holding an undivided whole, let  mention be made of all. And so of a warrantor vouched. If there are several parceners  and several days have passed and several essoins, we must see what was done  on each day by an inspection of the rolls, both of essoins and of pleas, in order to  ascertain who has had essoins, and how many, and who has not.3 Also that languor  has not preceded. Also that he who essoins himself of bed-sickness has first had an  essoin of difficulty in coming. But suppose that one essoins himself of bed-sickness  when he ought to essoin himself of difficulty in coming; in that case the essoin of  bed-sickness is turned into an essoin of difficulty in coming, since both lie but in  proper order, and he who does a greater thing4 does a lesser. But conversely, if one  has essoined himself of difficulty in coming when he ought to essoin himself of bedsickness,  it is of no value and does not excuse the absentee.5 Similarly if one essoins  himself of the Holy Land or of beyond the sea when he ought to essoin himself of  difficulty in coming. 6 The essoin of beyond the sea is turned into the essoin of difficulty  in coming, when it lies,7 [as where] one essoins himself of Ireland as if it  were of beyond the sea; that essoin is turned into a simple essoin of difficulty in  coming, as before Martin of Pateshull in the Bench in the seventh year of king  Henry, [the case] of Gilbert Marshall and Cecily his wife and Alan of Hyde, who  vouched William Marshall, earl of Pembroke, to warranty, who essoined himself  of Ireland.8 It was turned9 into [an essoin of difficulty in coming], and afterwards  he defaulted because another essoin of difficulty in coming on another day was not  allowed.
How essoins of bed-sickness and of difficulty in coming are returned in order.
 The essoins having been judged, both of difficulty in coming and of bed-sickness,  let the essoins of bed-sickness first be returned, in this way: [They are returned  first because they are taken first. But if an essoin of difficulty in coming is joined  with an essoin of bed-sickness, let the essoin of difficulty in coming be returned first,  and let the essoiner be called and the essoin returned, whether a tenant parcener  essoins himself or the demandant himself. If the demandant and a [tenant] parcener  essoin themselves of difficulty in coming at the same time, let the demandant's  essoiner be told to await the fourth day, should some [of the parceners] default,10
