To the sheriffs of London. Order to cause proclamation to be made in the city and suburbs, forbidding any man of whatsoever estate, degree or condition under pain of forfeiture without power and authority of the king and his ministers to take, arrest or meddle with any goods or chattels of men now or hereafter accused as hereinafter mentioned; as the king has various informations, and is assured of a truth that a number of his liege subjects, deceived by an evil spirit, have in times past held and preached divers opinions contrary to the catholic faith and to the determination of the universal church, and do daily preach and maintain the same, making and procuring unlawful assemblies, insurrections and commotions contrary to their allegiance, for that the king as a true christian prince has made him a party against them and their opinions, as by oath he is bound to do, and that by colour thereof a number of men opening their mouths wide for gain rather than for the common weal will peradventure strive to impeach and accuse divers persons of such misdeeds, in order to extort from them their goods and chattels; and the king's will is to make provision that no man have cause or matter for undue fear, as he is bound to do, and his intent is that men so accused be punished according to law and to the custom of the realm, and not otherwise.
