pieces of cloth of Candelwickstrete (fn. 34) for the King's use to William
de Marny and Roger de Berners for £153, of which they were
forthwith paid £63 and half a mark, and they were ready to

pieces for £43 out of the aforesaid sum of £63, the balance
being kept in hand until the question of damages be settled.
