the writ cannot be brought together in one place. Thus what is not found here may be  found there.]1
The exception where the writ has been lost.
 What shall we say if the original writ has been lost through someone's negligence or  lack of care?2 We then must see whether it has ever been read and heard in court before  the justices. If so, the justices may well proceed, provided it was in the presence  of the parties.3 And so if it was entered on the roll after the view claimed or a warrantor  vouched.4 But what if it was never heard or read before the justices, [and they  have] only the writ warranting the taking of the assise?5 Since all the clauses of the  original writ are there contained and sometimes the names of all the disseisors, the  assise may well proceed on such a writ, provided the sheriff acknowledges that he received  the original writ,6 because the king bears witness in his letters patent that such  a one has arraigned an assise against such a one concerning such a tenement in such a  vill, so that all the clauses of the writ are contained in it, which the king attests.7 But  what if it is an open writ patent and the seal has been completely broken or the tie  torn. No reliance is to be placed in such a writ. And so if it is wholly false, as where a  counterfeit seal has been appended,8 or if [the writ] is wholly false, not in agreement  with the style of the chancery.9 If one uses a writ of this kind and is convicted of it, let  him be punished [as above, [in the portion] on the crime of lese majesty,]10 unless he  has a warrantor who avows the writ. 11Among other matters we must see when a writ  impetrated against a predecessor ought to bind a successor, whether in a possessory  or a proprietary action, as where an abbot or prior commits a disseisin and then is  removed or deposed (remaining in the same house or another) or dies. We must then  see whether it was impetrated against him12 immediately after the disseisin, before  deposition or removal or after, and then whether the writ runs both in his own name  and the title of his dignity or only in the name of his dignity. But whether it is one or  the other, by the writ impetrated he is13 always bound to answer as long as he is alive,  no matter where he may be whether another has been substituted or not,14 because  the injuria is personal, and though an abbot has been deposed or removed after an  injuria, the punishment is not thereby abolished because of his change of dignity or  office, since the injuria, which is personal and follows the person, still remains. If he  was deposed before impetration, we must then see whether another abbot was  created before impetration or after. If before,
