of bed-sickness against the same A. with respect to a plea of land, and he did not  come, nor did the knights who made the view of him, nor did the sheriff send the  writ. Therefore let the sheriff be ordered, as before, and [that] he be1 present to hear  his judgment etc. The same day will always be given the parceners and the party.  If the sheriff sends the writ on the first day and the knights do not come, and the  sheriff sends the names of the knights, let the enrolment then be made thus: A.  offered himself on the fourth day against B., who essoined himself of bed-sickness  against the same A. with respect to a plea of land etc. And B. did not come nor did  the knights who made the view of him, namely, C. D. E. and F., and the sheriff sent  the writ. Therefore let the knights be attached to be present on such a day to attest  etc. And the same day was given to such a one, the demandant, and to such persons,  the parceners etc.] The form of the writ is this:

And have there the names of the pledges and this writ. On that  day the demandant may essoin himself, if he wishes, and the parceners similarly, or  appear and have another day either by themselves or by their essoiners. If the  sheriff attaches the knights and sends the writ on another day, and the essoinee  does not come nor the knights, then, the demandant or his essoiner offering himself  for the suit on the first, second, third, and fourth days, let the knights be attached2  by better pledges, and let the enrolment be this: A. offered himself on the fourth  day against B. who essoined himself of bed-sickness against the same A. with respect  to a plea of land etc. (as above). And B. did not come nor the knights who  made the view of him, namely, C. D. E. and F. And the sheriff sent word that the  knights were attached, namely C. by such persons and D. by such, and so of the  others. Judgment:3 let them be put by better pledges to be present on such
