1The king to the sheriff, greeting. We order you to cause A. the servant of such a  one and his attorney in the plea between that person and such a one with respect to  so much land with the appurtenances etc. to come before our justices etc. on such  a day. And also, with him, A. B. C. and D. upon whom the aforesaid have put themselves,  and in addition four of those who were present at the view which the aforesaid  A., the attorney of such a one, the demandant, made to such a one, the tenant,  that is, of meadow (or land with the appurtenances) in such a vill, which meadow  (or which land) he claims as his right against the other, to certify our aforesaid  justices as to what and how much meadow (or land) the same A, the attorney of  such a one, the demandant, put in his view, as to which the aforesaid tenant says  that the said A. only put in his view so much meadow (or land) and the said A.  says that he put in his view so much meadow (or so much land) in different places  and by so many parcels. And in the meantime let them certify themselves, that  they may more fully certify our aforesaid justices on the same day. And have there  this writ. Witness etc.
Having had the view let the tenant vouch a warrantor, if he has one and wishes to do so.
 When he has had the view, the tenant can decide at once whether he holds all the  land claimed or part of it or none. If he holds nothing therein, in demesne or in  service, or only a part,2 let him depart quit of that writ. If he holds the whole, let  him answer forthwith on his day, or if he has a warrantor, let him vouch him, that  he may defend him in his seisin,3 since it will sometimes be better and safer for the  tenant to vouch a warrantor than to risk the danger of defending the suit himself,  since there may be more exceptions, and exceptions of other kinds, available to the  warrantor than to the tenant.4 Let us therefore first treat of the warrantor and his  voucher.
