A.D. 1177. TKEATY BETWEEN KING LOUIS AND KING HENEY. 465 Feter, bishop of Perigord, and Eobert, bishop of Nantes, and three barons, Maurice de Croume, William Maingot, and Peter de Montrabell, on my side. And the bishops before-named, shall upon the word of truth assert, and the laymen shall make oath, that they will diligently make inquisition into the allegations made on either side, both through themselves and through the oaths of the men of those districts, and that whatever they shall learn as to the rights of each of us, the same they will pronounce between us, and we will in good faith strictly abide by their decision.

And after we shall have, by the will of God, assumed the cross, •we will cause our men who shall be with us to make oath that, if either of us, which God forbid, shall die upon the road, then in such ease they will faithfully serve him who shall be surviving, as they would have served their lord if he had been living, so long as they shall think proper to remain in the land of Jerusalem. The money of the deceased the survivor shall keep, to perform the due services to Christianity, with the exception of that portion which, before setting out, the deceased shall have ordered to be given to certain places and certain persons.
