Also put E. by gage and safe pledges to appear there to show why he sued the same  plea in the same court christian contrary to our prohibition. And have there etc.  (as above). Let the attachments be drawn in this way if the judges and he who sues  are resident in the same county. If in different counties, let separate writs be drawn  for each sheriff individually.
If by better pledges.
 If they do not appear on the day, then the sheriff either sends word that they are  attached, in which case let them be attached by better pledges to appear on another  day, and let the order of attachments be observed as it is in other personal actions,  [or] reports that they are clerks and are unwilling to find pledges and have no lay fee  by which they can be distrained.
