A.D. 1190.

The other moiety was to be at the discretion of Walter, archbishop of Eouen, Manser, bishop of Langres, the Master of the house of the knights Templars, the Master of the Hospital, Hugh, duke of Burgundy, Baoul de Coucy,- Drogo de Merlou, Bobert de Sabul, Andrew de Chauvigny, and Gilbert de Wascuil ; who were to employ the said money towards the relief of the land of Jerusalem, as they should think necessary.

Also, in presence of archbishops, bishops, earls and barons, with their sanction men-atarms might play as far as the sum of twenty shillings. But if any men-at-arms or mariners, or others of the lower orders, should be found playing of themselves, men-at-arms were to be whipped naked three days through the army, unless they should be prepared to ransom themselves at the arbitration of the persons before-named ; and the same as to other servants of a like degree. But if mariners should so play, they were VOL. II. M
