* LXVI. As for all thofe things, of which any Weljh-
man hath, without the legal Judgment of his Peers
been diffeifed or deprived, by King Henry our Father,

are obliged to warrant it ; we fhall have a reipite till
the time generally allowed the Croifes : Excepting
thofe things about which a Suit is depending, or where-
of an Inqueft hath been made by our order, before

mendatum fecundum arbitrium eorum ; falva perfona

jurandi cuilibet qui jurare voluerit, Sc nulli unquam ju-
rare prohibebimus.

' Amendment of our Kingdoai, and for quieting the Dif-

' Lands, Poffeffions, and in any other manner they can,
' till the Grievance is redreffed according to their Pleafure,

* faving harmlefs our own Perfon, and the Perfon of our
' Queen and Children ; and when it is redreffed, they fhall
' obey us as before.
