Another pone concerning services and customs at the petition of the demandant.
 The king to the sheriff, greeting. At the petition of the demandant put before our  justices at Westminster on such a day the plea which is in your county court by our  writ between A. the demandant and B. the deforciant with respect to the customs and  services which the same A. demands from the aforesaid B. from his free tenement  which he holds of him in such a vill etc. And summon the aforesaid B. by good summoners  to be there to reply to the aforesaid A. with respect to it. And have there the  summoners and this writ and the other writ. Witness etc. It says the other writ for  this reason, as where the plea is in the county court by some writ close between persons  for a debt or other thing, and thus is not [a writ] patent, which ought to remain  with the demandant. But suppose the tenant vouches to warranty in the county court  before the plea has been put before the justices of the bench, so that the warrantor has  a day before the justices itinerant because he did not warrant at once at the sheriff's  order; will mention not be made in the pone of the warrantor? No, because in the  king's court, after essoins and delays, the demandant will begin to count against the  tenant, since the warrantor has not yet warranted in the county court, and the tenant  will then begin to vouch his warrantor anew; the day given before the justices itinerant  will be null. This writ of pone seldom issues at the petition of the tenant, as was  said above, unless with cause, which may be of many kinds, as where a tenant has  been for a long time in parts across the sea, or is so weak that he cannot appear in the  county court, or, on the other hand, if the demandant is related to the sheriff, or his  servant or close follower, or if he is very powerful and a buzo of the county.1 A pone of  that kind is drawn thus, with the reason expressed.
Pone at the petition of the tenant, with the reason.
 The king to the sheriff, greeting. At the petition of the tenant, because he is in parts  abroad, (or because the demandant is a friend or follower of the sheriff or the like),  put before our justices on such a day the plea pending in your county court by our  writ of right between A. the demandant and B. the tenant concerning so much land  with the appurtenances in such a vill. And instruct the aforesaid A. to be there at that  time ready to prosecute his suit against the aforesaid B. if he wishes. And have there  this writ. Witness etc. And note that if the tenant, for whatever reason, has sued out  his pone before the justices, and on the first day before them defaults, he will have to  waive his pone or lose by default. Suppose that the demandant defaults on the first  day,
