[I answer: by such count and interrogation it does not survive in its original strength  nor retain the force of a writ of entry, but rather exceeds it, and when, by a count  contrary to its proper nature, it begins to be what it was not, it will have the nature  of that which it begins to be, and have all the remedies of a writ of right, especially  as to essoins, as was said above.]1 The two essoins also lie in writs of boundaries, if  some parcel of land remains in dispute and the action is like that by writ of right;  they only lie when the land has been specified.2 They also lie in writs of services and  customs after the deforciant has answered and brought a thing certain before the  court, because he cannot proceed to the duel or the grand assise unless the thing is  certain and specified. Similarly in any writ where one goes beyond the form of the  writ and speaks of the right, [or] in which a count as of right is inserted, as sometimes  happens in a writ of quo jure and others, where the matter may come to the  grand assise, the essoin of bed-sickness lies, as will be explained more fully below.3  [It is clear that an essoin of bed-sickness does not follow upon every writ which is  called and begins with the word praecipe, for there are many which so begin but  in no way touch the mere right, because they are writs of entry for a term, or the  writ which follows after novel disseisin when the jurors have been chosen and a view  of the land made, which is brought by the disseisee or his heir against the disseisor  or his son and heir, or another.]4
Where a writ of right is turned into a writ of entry by the count and conversely.
 In writs of right called praecipe, where the two essoins lie, the plea may sometimes  be so changed that no essoin of bed-sickness will lie after that change. For example,  suppose that a demandant claims land on the seisin of his grandfather and says all  the words that pertain to the duel, and adds that his grandfather died seised thereof  as of fee and right and that the tenant has no entry into that land except in this  way, that he intruded himself into it after the death of the demandant's grandfather  while he himself or his father was below age, or in another way, as where he  says and into which he has no entry except in this way, that he put himself into  that land as chief lord after the death of such a one, his grandfather, on the day he  died. [If] a jury is awarded by judgment of the court and by consent of the parties,  that is, if both demandant and tenant agree to it, for otherwise it ought not to be  awarded, unless both put themselves on a jury, the essoin of bed-sickness will then  cease at once, as said above.5 Similarly the essoin of bed-sickness may be obstructed
