have put themselves on that jury thereon. And cause the result of that inquest to be  made known to our justices at Westminster at such a term, clearly, distinctly and  openly by your letters sealed with your seal and those of the aforesaid keepers of the  pleas of our crown, and by two (or four) of those by whose oath you make that inquest.  And have there this writ and the names of those by whose oath you made that  inquest. Thus by the affirmation of the demandant and the denial of the tenant and  an investigation made by the country as to the truth,1 either the tenant will remain in  seisin until the demandant sues by writ or right, or the demandant will recover his  seisin by the inquest. If the inquest ought not to be taken in the county but before the  justices, let the writ be in this form:
Writ if the jurors ought to come before the justices.
 The king to the sheriff, greeting: We order you to cause twelve etc. to come before us  (or before our justices at Westminster) to recognize etc. if etc. because both etc. In  the meantime let them see that land, and let them so certify themselves thereof that  they may more fully certify us or our aforesaid justices at the aforesaid term. And  have there the names of the recognitors and this writ. Witness etc.
If the tenant wishes to except.
 2We have described above [what happens] when the demandant simply puts forward  his intentio and the tenant does not wish to except against it but simply puts himself  on a jury as to the entry. Now we must explain the procedure when the tenant wishes  to except against the intentio. It is necessary, first of all, that the demandant lay a  foundation for his intentio, that is, show that he is entitled to the action, that he, or  one of his ancestors whose heir he is, transferred for a term. Nor does it suffice if he  shows that the thing was so transferred by him or his ancestors, unless he shows that  the tenant has such entry and by the persons he names. Nor does it suffice to so put  forward and support his intentio unless he proves it, since no trust is to be put in one's  simple assertion.3
When the parties appear in court.
 The parties having appeared in court, the demandant either has proof or he does not,  or has nothing except suit which only raises a presumption and which does not suffice  for proof because it admits of denial by wager of law.
