And if, which God forbid, it shall so happen that our lord the king shall depart this life during the pilgrimage, then the said persons shall, without detaining the same ' or any delay, deliver up the before-mentioned castles to the said earl. And if it shall so happen that, in the meantime, our lord the chancellor shall be guilty of any excesses against the said earl, and, on being requested to make amends for the same with out delay, in conformity with the advice and opinion of the said lord archbishop of Rouen and others of the household of our lord the king and of his court, shall refuse so to do, then they shall restore and give up the said castles to the said earl. These other castles also, with the honors thereof granted to him by our lord the king, have been delivered into the charge of faithful servants of our lord the king ,· that is to say, the castle of WaBingford has been given up to the lord archbishop of Rouen, the castle of Bristol to the lord bishop of London, the castle of the Peak to the lord bishop of Coventry, the castle of Bolsover to Richard of the Peak, and, if the said Richard should decline it, the lord bishop of Coventry is to take it, the castle of Eye to Walter Fitz-Robert, the castle of Hereford to earl Roger Bigot, the castles of Exeter and of Launceston to Bichard Revel ; who have in Bke manner sworn that, as they owe fealty to our lord the king, they wiB faithfully keep the same for his service. And, further, three castles, which belong to the crown of our lord the king, have been deBvered in trust as foBows : the castle of Windsor to the earl 01 Arundel, the castle of Winchester to GBbert de Lacy, and the castle of Northampton to Simon de PateshuB, who have in Bke manner sworn that, as they owe fealty to our lord the king, they wiB faithfully keep the same for his service. It has been further agreed, that bishops, abbats, earls, barons, vavasors, and freeholders shaB not, at the wiB of justices or deputies of our lord the king, be disseised of their lands and chattels,28 but shaB be dealt with by judgment of the court of our lord the king, according to the lawful customs and assizes of the realm, or according to the command of our lord the king. And in like manner the lord John shall cause simUar provisions to be made in his lands. And, if any person shaB presume to do otherwise, at the prayer of the before-M « Caballis," in the text, is clearly a mistake for " catallis.'?
