522 ANNALS OF EOSEB D E HOVEDEN. Α.π. USO. and I, Henry, king of England, have chosen three bishops, William, bishop of Le Mans, Peter, bishop of Perigord, and Robert, bishop of Nantes, and three barons, Maurice de Crouy, William Maingot, and Peter de Mont Babeli, to act in my behalf; and, having examined into the truth on both sides, both themselves as well as by the oaths of the people of those lands, the bishops aforesaid shall assert upon their word of truth, and the laymen shall make oath, that whatsoever they shall find to belong to either as of right, that same they will declare, and in good faith will firmly abide by their decision.
