B. with respect to a plea of land in your county (or in such another county) is  languor or not. If it is languor, let them then set him a day, a year and day from  the day of his view, that he then be present at the next county court. If he recovers  before the view is attested, the county court may well give the essoinee licence to  rise, in accordance with the rule in the court of the lord king. If the county court  denies it, on the complaint of the essoinee the lord king may give licence to rise on  the default of the county court. And so if the plea is in the court of a baron or  another who has a court, the lord king may give licence to rise on the default of the  court by this writ. [The form of the writ above where licence to rise is sought [which]  begins thus: It has been shown us.]1 And finally note that if the essoinee does not  come on the day given him by the viewers, he may be excused from default because  of accidents and lawful intervening impediments, if they are proved, as was touched  upon briefly above2 and will be explained more fully below, [of defaults.]3
Of the essoin of vill-sickness.
 There is also among other essoins an essoin, abnormal because it does not follow  the rule of other essoins, called the essoin of vill-sickness, where one appears in  court on the first day and offers himself, then withdraws on the same day without  giving an answer. If, because of the onset of some illness, he cannot move himself  from the place where he is lodged and received and come to court, he ought to send  two essoiners, who in truth cannot be called essoiners because they do not receive  a day, but messengers and excusers, and let them announce4 publicly in court that  he is so detained by such infirmity in the same vill, or in another where he spent  the night, that he cannot come to court, neither to gain nor lose, and then retire. On  the second day let him send two, other than the first two. And so on the third day,  but a different two from the first, and thus he is excused up to the fourth day. On  the fourth day let four knights, if such are found in court or in the vill, be sent to the  infirm person by the justices to hear whom he wishes to attorn in his place to gain  or lose in the plea between him and the demandant. And if they find him there,  they will take an attorney if he cannot come personally. If he is not found in that  vill, and that is attested by the four knights, the tenant will be in default as though  he were essoined of bed-sickness. But this essoin does not lie for everyone nor in  every place.
