since all pleas in the Bench are put and remain sine die by virtue of the public  proclamation made thereof. If the justices are resident in the Bench and there are  also justices itinerant in the county where the land claimed is situated, let a day  then be given before the justices of the Bench, and let the justices of the Bench  fix a day before the justices itinerant in the county, the proper order, so to speak,  being observed. On this matter more will be said below, according as the parties  come to the Tower or do not.1 It may well happen that the essoinee cannot come to  the Tower on his day, because languor turns into dangerous disease, that is, into  an incurable disease.2 In that case, since he cannot come, he ought to send a sufficient  responsalis, who may take the judgment upon himself, and whose answer  must be ratified as will be explained below.3 The sheriff ought also to instruct the  knights to be before the justices at Westminster on the day certain contained in the  writ to attest their view and the day they set him.45If the demandant is diligent  in prosecuting and, when he receives the writ, the sheriff is negligent,6 let him then  be ordered sicut prius, [and] that he be present to hear his judgment. Thus let his  negligence be punished. But if it not on the sheriff's account but the demandant's  that the essoinee is not viewed, then on the failure7 of the demandant, let licence  to rise be given the essoinee, if he seeks licence and has recovered from his infirmity,8  [the demandant will be given another day, and let the essoinee be ordered  to come immediately to court that he may have the same day,] because when a  tenant is essoined of bed-sickness after he has once appeared in court, he cannot  rise with impunity without the view of the four knights or without licence, as will  be explained below.9 But if neither the demandant nor the sheriff has been negligent,  and the knights have not made the view, or though they have, do not come  to attest, then, on the day given, the demandant offering himself for the suit  against the tenant and the knights, let them be attached,10 according as their names  are written in the writ, by this writ. [Let the enrolment be made thus, if the sheriff  has sent the writ.
