A.D. 1293. belonging to any of your subjects had either really or apparently been taken by the men of our kingdom, and was detained by them, ve would cause restitution of, or reparation to be made for them to you. And as it is in like manner notorious and manifest that many of the aforesaid men of Bayonne having taken to themselves some other malefactors, have traitorously attacked our town of Roupel, making several assaults upon it and its inhabitants, killing some of them and injuring others in divers manners, we, as we could not pass over or connive at their excesses and atrocities, enjoined you, or those who are your lieutenants in Guienne and Bayonne, to send a certain number of the aforesaid men of Bayonne, by yourself or your lieutenants, to appear in person before us at Perigueux, within a certain period which has now elapsed, to do what reason advised and justice demanded. And we also caused some other mandates with respect to the aforesaid matters to be delivered to you, with sufficient distinctness by our letters patent, which injunctions and commands you have contumaciously and contemptuously neglected to obey. And as, for certain and lawful causes, we have caused the city of Bourdeaux, and the district of Anjou, and all other territories which your people and your lieutenants in the aforesaid places occupied in your name, within the boundaries cf our seneschalship of 'Perigord, in the districts of Perigueux, Chateauroux, 1 and Limoges, your people and lieutenants have been contumaciously disobedient and rebellious to our people, who, without arms, demanded the execution of our aforesaid mandate ; and they persist in their rebellion, obeying neither our commands nor our officers. And, what is still harder to be borne, they have fortified and garrisoned the cities, castles, towns, and other places in the aforesaid territory against us, purposing every day, in a hostile manner, to resist onr just and feu dal demands. And they have not chosen to give up certain castles and fortresses which, for certain and lawful reasons, we have caused to be demanded of them by our people ; whether it be that they were unwilling to surrender them, or whether they contemptuously refused to do so, and they have etirred up, and do stir up, and invite the people of that district to resist us and our people on our roads and journeys ; binding the people by express oaths to oppose us, and, at the assizes, they have publicly promulgated letters on your behalf, and have said that no obedience was to be rendered to us or to our people in anything.
