A. offered himself on the fourth day against B. with respect to such a plea and B. did  not appear; the sheriff was ordered to attach him (or to have his body or to distrain  him by his lands and chattels). The sheriff sent word that he ordered the bailiffs  of such a liberty and they did nothing therein. Therefore the sheriff is ordered not to  omit because of such liberty from putting the aforesaid B. by gage and pledges (or  from having his body, or from distraining him by [his] lands and chattels, or from  taking such land into the hand of the lord king, or from doing some other thing in  accordance with the order of the lord king) and let the bailiff be summoned by the  sheriff to be present to answer as to why the order of the lord king was not executed.  Let the writ be in this form.

And if he meets resistance, having assumed to himself,  if need be, a sufficiency of knights and free men of the county, to seize the bodies of all  the resistors and keep them safe in prison until the lord king has indicated his will in  the matter. And let the lord of the liberty be attached to be present at the aforesaid  day to defend himself, if he can, with respect to the aforesaid trespass.
