If he has granted it to farm and for a term of years the term will belong to the king,1  as a chattel, for a term is regarded as a chattel.2 And note that the king ought  not de jure to have year and day of anything which cannot be the escheat of lords,3  nor ought it to remain with them if that can be established. 4We must also see what  is to be said of a clerk who has been arrested for felony. If a clerk has been arrested  for a felony and is claimed by court christian, and the bishop or other ordinary  requests the use of the king's prison to keep him in custody and he breaks prison  and flees to a church, let him be taken from the church5 and returned to the prison  from which he escaped, nor ought the church to protect him [any more than] a  common thief, who6 may be taken out if he refuses to come to the king's peace, as  are common robbers and7 the like, as thieves found seised of stolen goods.8
[Inlawry]: how outlaws after outlawry are admitted for good reason to the peace.  When one has thus been outlawed, no matter in what way and regardless of the  cause, it will not be safe for him to appear until he has been inlawed by grace of the  prince. For the king may of his grace inlaw an outlaw, admit him to his peace outside  of which he had earlier been placed. [He may] put him back within the law provided  that9[If the outlawry has been properly done according to the law of the land,  whether the cause is true or presumptive, he may pardon him his flight and outlawry;  if contrary to the law of the land, he ought to pronounce it void.]10[Some so outlawed  according to the law of the land are more readily admitted to the peace [than  others], [according as there was a true cause, or none, or an insufficient cause,] as  where he alleged to be slain is produced alive and well,11 [or] if the deed was not  criminal,12 or occurs by misadventure.1314If the deed is criminal and amounts to a  felony,15 they ought not to be taken back into the peace lest easy forgiveness  furnish others with excuse for or temerity in offending.]1617he answer all who wish  to proceed against him.18 Let the lord king's letters patent testifying that he has  granted him his peace be drawn in this form:
A writ addressed to all bailiffs to the effect that the lord king pardons a flight and outlawry occurring in his reign.
 The king etc. to all his bailiffs and lieges who shall see these presents, greeting.  Know that we have pardoned A. the flight that he made and the outlawry
