A.D. 1194. LETTER OF DROGO, ANSELM, AND rSSIN. 331 and if they shall confess that they have aided the king of England, they shall be included in the truce. All supporters of either side within fortified places shall also be included in the truce. The king of Erance has chosen two arbitrators, and, in like manner, the king of England two, by whose award, or by that of the greater part of them, if either of the kings shall take anything from the other, or any one of their subjects shall do so, reparation shall be made for the same within forty days therefrom. And the said arbitrators shall make oath on the holy Evangelists, that they will neither for love, hate, fear, nor reward, be guilty of any omission, but will with good faith make their award. And if it shall so happen that any seizure shall be made beyond the Loire, in the direction of Bourges, then the arbitrators shall meet between Exodun, and Chateau Baoul, for the purpose of compensation being made, and the arbitrators of the territory in which the seizure shall have been made shall summon the other arbitrators ; and they, on hearing the summons, shall with good faith meet on fitting days at one of the places above named ; and if any seizure shall happen to be made on this side the Loire, in the direction of Normandy, then the arbitrators shall meet between Vernueil and Tiliers, for the purpose of compensation being made. And if there shall happen to be any misunderstanding between the arbitrators, then. Master the legate of the highest standing,19 shall, with good faith and at peril of his soul, enquire into the truth thereof, and shall pronounce upon him who shall refuse to make satisfaction for the seizure and the offence, sentence of excommunication, all right of appeal being withdrawn, and shall place his lands under interdict. But if the evildoer shall belong to the territory of the king of Erance, then the king of France shall, in good faith, aid in obtaining reparation for the same, without any loss to himself ; and the king of England shall do the same, in good faith, as to his subjects. If the king of France shall make any aggression upon the king of England, or the king of England upon the king of France, then the cardinal shall place an interdict upon the lands of the party making the aggression, if he shall refuse to make amends for such aggression, at the award of the arbitrators, or the major part of them. Richard, king of England, and his people, shall hold their lands on this side the Loire, towards Normandy, in the same manner in which they were holding them on the day 1 9 The legate of France or of Normandy.
