The Form of the Treaty of Peace made between the hinge of France and England. " Know all men to whom these present letters shall come, that William, chancellor of Eichard, king of England, bishop of Ely, and legate of the Apostolic See, and, with him, William de Boches, John de Pratelles, and William Bruyère, have come to the king of France, on behalf of the king of England, with letters patent to the said king, in which it is stated that such terms as they shall agree to and conclude with him, the said king of England will fully ratify and confirm. Wherefore they have agreed to the following effect, and have, on behalf of their lord the king of England, made the following covenants with the king of France. Eichard, king of England, agrees with his Uege lord, the king of France, as to the whole of the land which the king of France has taken from him and his subjects, and which is held by himself and his subjects, that he shaU retain as much of the same as ho shall think fit for himseK and his people. And, as to earl John, the following shall be the terms agreed to. If the men of the king of England shall be able fully to make proof in the court of our lord the king of France that the said John has sworn to obtain money for the Hberation of the king of England, and has made agreement to that effect, then the said John shall be held bound to pay the same ; also, the whole of the lands which he held, when the king of England, his brother, took his departure to go beyond sea, he shall hold, on both sides of the sea, as freely as he previously held the same ; excepted always, that he shall be released from the oath which he made as to not entering the territory of England ; and, on this point, the said king of England shall give to the lord John security, both by himself and by the barons,9" archbishops, and bishops of his dominions, as also by the king of France. But, if the said earl John shaB attempt to deny that the said letters were his, or that he swore to that effect, the men of the king of England shall sufficiently prove in the court of the king of France, by fit and proper witnesses, that he did swear to obtain money to procure the liberation of the king of England. And if it shall be proved, as has been said, that the said earl swore to seek money for the Bberation of the king, or if he shall fail in making his proof, then the king of France shall not interest 9 8 By oath made by them to that effect. ,
